Charissa J. Adams was born in the house where her parents still live just outside of Seattle, WA; she graduated from high school in Madrid, Spain; met her husband while living in Prague, Czech Republic; and although she’s never lived in Colorado, she is a huge Broncos fan, thanks to her college roommate who introduced her to the joys of football.

When she played a spunky Phebe in Shakespeare’s As You Like It at the age of ten, she knew she wanted to be an actor. Having toured around the Northwest with an educational theatre company after college, acted in many short films, and worked on the TV shows Grimm and Leverage, she recently moved to Los Angeles and is continuing her work in theatre, film and television.
