About the whole show: there have been a lot of complaints about the age of the main characters as they are
meant to be 13 and the actors all look and are much older.
Adam plays Russell, Ellie's love interest, who's a little bit dark and mysterious. He walks into Ellie's
life and makes her all happy and smiley (apart from the episode where they read each others diaries.)
It's a lighter part for Adam and at last he finds a girl who's father approves! (see Where the Heart is)
He's very comfortable in the role but not stretched. There's nothing that includes much depth, but he suits
the 'good looking' aspect of the show.
