Madeleine Adams has worked continuously in film & television since 2015.  Never one to shy away from a challenge, Madeleine’s first starring role was in a short film called Pound, playing Laura “Lou” Jackson where Madeleine gave a chilling & heart wrenching performance as a disenfranchised teenager in the juvenile penal system, portraying the imbalance of power and child rape.

In 2018 Madeleine was cast as the lead protagonist in the highly rated web series Alibi which was greeted with great fanfare as the beginning of TVNZ’s online local made drama content, this series showcased her work to many of the industry’s leading directors & producers. Following the release of Alibi Madeleine has worked on multiple series including The Men Who Built America: Frontiersmen produced by Leonardo Dicaprio for Steven David Entertainment USA, Power Rangers for Nickelodeon USA, The Gulf S2 the highly rated Danish & NZ coproduction, South Pacific Pictures The Brokenwood Mysteries & recently returned to film her 2nd season of the BBC UK series Mystic, filmed in New Zealand.

Films include the Peter Jackson produced Feature Film Mortal Engines, Screentime NZ Telefeature In a Flash, and the US Feature Film by Blumhouse Productions Black Christmas playing a 17 year old US Highschool Sorority sister alongside UK actor Imogen Poots where she garnered high praise from the acclaimed director Sophia Takal, who made Madeleines role bigger at the time of filming in New Zealand.
