Personal life

Adams was born in New York City, New York, the daughter of Rosalind (née Gould), an actress, and Robert K. Adams, who was a producer, actor, and former vice president of CBS, as well as a descendant of Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams.[1][2][3] She attended the High School for the Performing Arts and the School of American Ballet. Adams is married to actor Tony Shalhoub, who adopted her oldest daughter Josie Lynn (born 1989) when they married in 1992; the couple adopted a second child, Sophie, in 1994.

Career

After playing small roles in television and low-budget movies, Adams' performances in Days of Heaven (1978) and the remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers (also 1978) brought her positive reviews. She has also starred in the films Cuba (1979), The Dead Zone (1983), Key Exchange (1985), and Gas Food Lodging (1992). In 1995 she temporarily retired from film-making due to family responsibilities and a dearth of good roles, resuming her career around 2002.

In 2002 she received rave reviews for her performance in the romantic comedy Made-Up, which was written by her sister, actress Lynne Adams and directed by her husband Tony Shalhoub, star of Monk. Adams most recently appeared in the films At Last and The Legend of Lucy Keyes (both 2005) and starred on Broadway in The Cherry Orchard, as well as guest-starring on Monk.
