Adam Gabriel Garcia played Alex, Prime Minister Harriet Jones' assistant, in the Doctor Who television story The Christmas Invasion. According to the audio commentary podcast for the episode offered for free on the BBC.co.uk website following its transmission, Garcia accepted the relatively minor role as he is a science fiction fan.
Adam stayed on in London to star in several West End musicals. Dein Perry, the choreographer of Hot Shoe Shuffle, went on to found the successful stage show Tapdogs. In 2000 Adam Garcia played Sean in Bootmen, a movie based on the Tapdogs story.
Despite the fact that he has starred in such movies as Coyote Ugly, it was not until 2004, when he participated as rock star Stu Wolff in Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen that he gained mainstream fame as an actor.
However, Garcia had long been an accomplished stage actor before the release of that movie. He played Doody in the West End's version of Grease in London. He also played another Travolta character, Tony Manero, in the stage version of Saturday Night Fever, which ran from 1998 to 1999 in London.
In 2009, Garcia played the role of Stefan in the ITV drama Britannia High.
