Hollywood—and just about any movie industry hub out there—has never been short of actors who started off as models. It makes sense, actually: Modeling involves a lot of skills that translate smoothly to acting. It’s a bit of a different story for model-actor Adam Senn, however, as acting has always been his first and true passion. Yet, to look at his modeling days as nothing but a springboard that got him into showbiz would be a massive understatement. You simply don’t get to do the kind of modeling work he’s done without the skills, talent and consummate professionalism of a dedicated model.

All that being said, Senn has definitely grown into a familiar face on TV and movies alike, from last decade’s “The City” to the latest season of “Hit the Floor” and beyond.


DA MAN: Hi, Adam. Great to have you with us. Let’s start off with your “origin story.” What was it that brought you into modeling?
Adam Senn: Pure luck! I was asked to do it and I thought it was a good way to pay for my acting classes for the summer.

DA MAN: So far, you’ve appeared in the campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana Watches; you’ve become the face for the brand’s One Sport fragrance; you’ve appeared in many high-profile editorials and the list goes on. What’s the secret behind your success?
Adam Senn: I believe it has to do with being a genuine and humble human being. I’m not the best-looking guy, that’s for sure, but I enjoy the time I spend with the people I work with. It’s those traits that put me in a position for these amazing jobs.

DA MAN: And then, as the story goes, in the late 2000s you started appearing in TV shows and short movies. Was it a deliberate career decision or was it coincidental?
Adam Senn: It was my intention from the get-go. The only reason I got into modeling was to go to New York and study theater there. When the modeling part took off, it became a gift and a curse, because it paid for my schooling, but took me away from my passion. At one point, I made acting my only priority.
