Today we’d like to introduce you to Adam Malik.
Adam, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
When I start modelling, I was 16 years old! It was small gigs but still modelling at 17, I got a big contract of 6 months with a Canadian store called “Winners,” and since then, I start accumulating followers, etc.
And to start even pushing myself more, I start doing comedy videos on the Internet. Kinda popular in Europe because their all in French and trying to get the American followers now!
Recently in July, I got signed with Netflix for a new show who’s going to pop out in 2020. Stay tuned! 😉
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road wasn’t that smooth I had a hard way to do, especially with an Arab dad and a French mom. When I was born automatically I had to be a doctor or Ingenieur for them, so basically I only counted on myself and no one else, especially for modelling when I was 16 or 17 people use to make fun of that! At 18 and 19 start getting bigger contracts and now at 20. On Sept 3, I signed with Zara New York for the Summer Collection 2019!
People think I had an easy life because my dad owns a lot of Insurance or Business but I always did my own things starting 15! A lot of people think I dropped university as soon that I start making money lol but even now signed with Netflix or Zara until my name is not made in Hollywood I have 2 jobs lol… I sell shoes, and I work part-time at a Bank!
When people are watching my videos on Snapchat they think it’s easy, you only get sponsors for views, etc. etc. but making a career on the Internet in 2018 is Hard kinda like becoming a Doctor or a Hollywood actor, that’s why I always tell the kids to stay in School! Some people might see me getting big contracts, and info’s are moving but remember that for every win that I get in the acting Industry I got rejected 5 times, but before I got that role in that show I got rejected in 6 other auditions!
Please tell us about TheFrenchAdam.
The thing that I most proud it’s my supporter’s the one that actually supported me since I started not only my videos on Snapchat but my modelling etc. etc., It’s not by working 9 am to 5 pm that you are going to make it in life especially to be an actor, I get max 4 hours of sleep per night if I’m lucky or 8 when I’m sick!
Stuff that set me apart from the others is, at first I didn’t know how to speak English.
When I moved to New York City, I learned over there, and I am always going to remember when they said I wasn’t going to make it true Hollywood 🙂 I’m born to change the planet not to work 9 to 5 and have a calm life! Catch me one Netflix 2020. 😉
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
To be honest with you guys, my favorite memory as a child is… I actually don’t have one, I had strict parents, and it was always housed school and schoolhouse.
Only good stuff it’s the childish pranks that me and my friends use to make to teachers in class! (Because yes, I use to talk a lot in class.)
