Adam Lazarre-White is an actor, writer, director and producer, who is best known for roles in film and television like The Gift, Rosewood, ScandalThe Young and the RestlessOcean's Thirteen, Tied Up, and Lethal Weapon. 

Adam grew up in Manhattan and graduated from Harvard University with Honors in Government and Political Philosophy. While in college, Adam began cultivating his love for entertainment, writing script coverage for Deborah Schindler and Miriam Beliig. At Harvard, Adam studied acting with Robert Brustein (former head of both Yale Drama School & Harvard’s A.R.T.), with Ken Howard (later to be President of SAG/AFTRA) and Claire Malardie for Alexander Technique.  During summers and after graduating, he continued training at home in NYC, at T. Schreiber Studios, with Gloria Maddox, Betty Buckley and Terry Schreiber, admired as one of the finest acting teachers in the country.

Ready to build his career further, Adam relocated to Los Angeles and studied with revered teacher Milton Katselas, Jeffrey Tambor, and Risa Bramon Garcia’s Master Class. In L.A., Adam worked with wonderful theater companies and directors, including The Actor’s Gang founded by Tim Robbins and the 'home' of Jack Black, as well as in multiple plays for director Michael Arabian. While starring on The Young & The Restless for CBS, Adam enjoyed years under the tutelage of the great playwright and director John Bishop (Trip Back Down, Legacies, Confluence), and the veterans of the famed Circle Rep Co. with Circle Rep. West.


Adam first made a name for himself in Hollywood with a recurring role on Living Single as Queen Latifa's love interest, and across from Holly Robinson on Hanging with Mr. Cooper.  Adam was also a guest star on Will & Grace, Girlfriends and later on Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice and notably recurring on HEROES as "Ian". However, Adam is most likely best known for his early starring role as Nathan Hastings on The Young & The Restless, which garnered him an Image Award nomination for Best Actor in Daytime.

Recently, Adam has guest starred on hit television shows including Rosewood, Criminal Minds, and Glow. Adam also starred in and produced festival hit, Forgiveness (available on Netflix) with Richard T Jones and appeared with Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Allison Tolman in Joel Edgerton's directorial debut hit film, The Gift. Following his love as a writer and director, Adam directed an intense short film, 200 Years, in 2012 for producer Rob Fried (Collateral, Rudy) and wrote Vin Deisel’s new, groundbreaking web-series, The Ropes.

As an acting coach Adam has loved teaching both privately and at his acting school, "ALW Acting Studios", for over a 15 years with his students growing as artists and working professionals.  Adam's practical and entertaining book on acting, "Acting Truth" will be available in late 2018!
