Dawn Adams stars in Singledom as Naomi Giles, the strong, but silly financial advisor begrudgingly thrust back into the dating scene. When casting for this role, we had a very specific Naomi in mind. She had to be smart, funny and successful, yet vulnerable and relatable. Most importantly, we wanted our women viewers to see a part of themselves in her. Dawn knocked it out the park and created an empathetic character that you can’t help but root for.
Dawn Adams is a Philadelphia native who began her experience in acting at an early age through participating in school plays and theater activities. As Dawn learned all she could about singing and the performing arts she began using drama as a ministry at her local Church; where she traveled throughout the United States and Mexico to work as a minister as well as to compete in the Fine Arts Competition for several years. After High School, Dawn knew she wanted to study visual arts and graduated with a Bachelors of Arts in Communications with a focus in Multimedia and Film Production. In 2007, a year after college Dawn’s life was stricken with grief when her beloved father died of lung cancer.
