Adam Demos Career:
In 2012, Demos played the role of ‘Solo Man’ in the iconic advertising for the Australian soft drink brand.
Demos previously played small roles in Australia when his big break came. In 2017, Demos was cast to play Nate Baldwin in the ABC Australia drama Janet King. On the set, Demos found out about a role in Hollywood explicitly written for an Australian actor. He got the gig and flew to Vancouver to start filming the third season of Lifetime’s UnREAL. Demos stated that it was a confusing experience filming UnREAL, his first international production, as it was a TV show within a TV show.
In 2019, Demos starred opposite Christina Milian in Netflix’s Falling Inn Love which was shot in New Zealand.
In 2020, Demos filmed the Netflix series Sex/Life, inspired by the book 44 Chapters About 4 Men by BB Easton, in Toronto, Canada. Demos was cast in the show with the help of Stacy Rukeyser, whom he had worked with on UnREAL and was the showrunner for Sex/Life. To prepare for the scene where he sings “Heartbeats”, Demos took singing and guitar lessons. His full-frontal nude scene in episode 3 of the series went viral on social media platforms.
In May 2022, A Perfect Pairing was released on Netflix, starring Victoria Justice alongside Demos. The film tells the story of an American wine company executive who travels to Australia to land a major client and ends up sparking a connection with a man she meets on a sheep farm.
In 2020 when Adam was involved in making “Sex/Life,” he got to work with an actress of Irani origin named Sarah Shahi. They both became excellent friends and started spending time with each other. Long story short, the artist is currently in a relationship and is living together in their home.
There are chances they might get married soon, and there were rumors at the beginning of 2022 that they are planning to tie knots. Adam is not a vivid lover of social media platforms, but he keeps his fans updated regarding his upcoming projects. There are more than a million people who follow Demos’ Instagram.
Demos’ sweetheart was previously married to someone else. She tied the knot with actor Steve Howey. The former duo shared vows on February 7, 2009, in Las Vegas, and the same year they welcomed their first baby, a son, William Wolf Howey. Subsequently, they also gave birth to twins, a daughter, Violet Moon Howey, and a son, Knox Blue Howey.
Demos’ girlfriend Shahi and her then-husband Howey filed for divorce in May 2020. Following that, they legally parted ways after their divorce was finalized in January 2021.
