10 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘Suits’ Star Patrick J. Adams
This Canadian actor has been one of the leading stars on Suits for the past 7 years. Patrick J. Adams has swept audiences away with his portrayal of Mike Ross, a college dropout who has a photographic memory and a superior level of intelligence. He becomes a lawyer at one of New York’s biggest firms, but there’s a catch — he never went to law school, so he’s an unlicensed lawyer who spends his time hiding the truth. The onscreen chemistry between Patrick J. Adams and his co-star Gabriel Macht is just one of the reasons the show has been so successful, and let’s face it they both look pretty dapper in a suit! Since the series is currently airing its seventh season, we’re taking a look at a few things fans might not have know about the leading stars. Here’s 10 things you probably didn’t know about Patrick J. Adams!
10. He’s a Photographer
Not only is Patrick J. Adams an amazing actor, but he’s also an avid photographer! It is a hobby he picked up a while ago and kind of just taught himself how to capture great photographs and developed an artistic eye. In an interview with Da Man magazine he said, “I’ve always been fascinated with captured moments. I’ve always been amazed how a story or a feeling or a conflict can be so effectively communicated in a single image. The fascination must have begun with photos of my family and of distant grandparents who I never knew but who were part of me.” He’s such a good photographer that his pictures are even featured on the show! When re-watching the show, take a look at the photos hanging on the wall in Rachel’s office — those are the real-life work of Adams! He shot most of the photographs and shares a lot of his work with fans on social media.
9. Honorary Membership
When we think of Patrick J. Adams we picture him as the smart and savvy lawyer we see on television, but it’s easy to forget he’s just an actor! However, he has a bit of law bragging credits to his name now. After portraying Mike Ross on Suits for three years, Adams was given an honorary lifetime membership to the University College Dublin Law Society. A former auditor of the UCD Law Society commented on his induction in 2013 and said, “His portrayal of Mike Ross in ‘Suits’ has captured the imagination of millions of people. And although the character is certainly not your typical lawyer, he ignites a general interest among viewers in the law, lawyers and law firms.”
