Adams attended the then Harold Hill Grammar School, in Harold Hill, Essex from 1957 to 1964, and played leading roles in a number of school plays. Later he trained at RADA and was a member of the National Youth Theatre. He spent a year at Stratford-Upon-Avon before turning to television, where he was often cast as a criminal. He had roles in the films Groupie Girl (1970) and Private Road (1971), and appeared in a variety of programmes in Britain, notably Fawlty Towers, Public Eye, The Professionals, Z-Cars, The New Avengers and Dixon of Dock Green.

He left the acting profession in 1982, before moving to Norwich[1] and retraining as a solicitor. His workload prevented him from appearing in the 1996 follow-up to The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, entitled The Legacy of Reginald Perrin[2].

Trevor Adams died in 2000 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
