Vikas Adam

About Vikas Adam

Vikas Adam’s warm and approachable voice seems to be able to move effortlessly into countless geographical regions: Australia, England, America, India, to name a few, but there is nothing about his delivery that says “hey, I’m acting here”, his voice is entirely natural and subtle.

There’s a lot of love for Vikas Adam at Audible (both in-house and among our listeners), and that has grown especially in the last few years. His starring turn in Lion, the true story that was the basis for the movie, qualified him as an official "narrator who makes us ugly cry”. He was one of the voices behind a top YA pick this year, When Dimple Met Rishi, as well as Salman Rushdie’s latest literary tour de force, The Golden House. Adam is also regularly kicking butt in the sci-fi & fantasy genre, and has garnered lots of fans for his Heartstrikers series, which recently won an Audie in the Fantasy category.

Born in British Columbia, Adam lived in various parts of the US and Canada, as well as India, before his family settled in Texas. He graduated from Syracuse University before returning to Dallas where he began his theater and TV career, which later took him to LA. Though relatively speaking Adam is still early in his career as a narrator, he is already making an impact on the industry and beyond. Besides his work as an actor, producer, director, and narrator, Adam is a lecturer in the Department of Theater, Film & Television at UCLA. He has also used his theater skills in numerous social outreach programs dealing with sexual assault awareness, and was one of the founding members of the Dallas County Sexual Assault Coalition.
