An enigmatic natural performer, Adam is in his perfect job. After years in MI6 he has confronted his demons and become a ruthless pragmatist. He has the power to push himself and his colleagues to the edge to get the job done - then pick up the pieces. This combination of strength and compassion, alongside his absolute belief in the Intelligence Service, make Adam a formidable leader.
His MI6 wife, Fiona, was his greatest stimulus. And beneath it all, Adam dreamt of sharing a stable home life with his wife and child. It wasn't to be, Fiona, was shot while trying to avenge her previous life in Syria. Adam went into denial at first, but then realised focussing on his work was the best way for him to handle his loss.
