As a child it was Timothy's dream to become a professional athlete. He says his "ultimate passion in life" was to become a professional football player.
Timothy was NBC's second choice to play "Casey" on Sunset Beach, but after the original actor was fired, he went on to play the part for the entire run of the series.
When Timothy broke into the world of modeling he was represented by Boss, the biggest agency for male models.
Timothy appeared on the cover of Men's Health magazine in June 2000. In 2007 he appeared on the cover of the Nalini Singh novel Caressed by Ice.
When Timothy graduated college, he started a trucking company with a friend. He later sold his half of the business because he found the work "boring and mentally unfulfilling".
Timothy was married to actress/model Daisy Fuentes from 1991 to 1995. The two met when they were teen-agers in high school.
Before being cast as "Rob Layne" on Guiding Light in 2000, Timothy had auditioned for the role of "Hart Jessup" in 1996 and was also a day player in several episodes of the series.
Timothy says he started working out when he was in the 9th grade as a way to compensate for being small.
During his time on Sunset Beach, Timothy shared a dressing room with co-star Jason George. The two became instant friends both on-screen and off. Jason even gave Timothy the nickname "T-Bone" which stuck with him for years to come.
Timothy has 4 siblings and is the middle child of the family. He says that being the middle child caused him to become an "exhibitionist".
Timothy admits that he never wears underwear. He says he 'just doesn't see the point'.
Timothy has a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science from Jersey City State College.
Timothy is 6'1" and has blond hair and blue eyes.
Timothy Adams: (on his "Sunset Beach" character, Casey) As soon as I read the character description, I thought, 'Well, I don't have to change a thing. It described me on paper. A lifeguard? I'd be a lifeguard. The whole stereotype physique of what I represent was right on the paper.
Timothy Adams: My first audition in L.A. was a commercial for some German product. We all had to be shirtless, the men and the women. What a great country! Half-naked women and I might get paid!
Timothy Adams: I've always wanted to be noticed.
Timothy: (on his appearance in "Die Hard with a Vengeance") I worked on that film for nine weeks, made a considerable amount of money, and the agents who got me the audition never called me back.
