Frankie Adams was born in Western Samoa and moved to New Zealand with her mother and her two sisters when she was just four years old. At the age of 16, when Frankie was still at high school, she attended an open audition and landed her first professional acting role on New Zealand’s longest running nightly primetime serial drama, SHORTLAND STREET. Frankie played the role of Ula Levi on the top-rating series for four years between 2010-2014.
In 2015, Frankie guest starred as a troubled young prison inmate in the award-winning Australian television drama series WENTWORTH. She also played the lead role of Ilisa in New Zealand feature film ONE THOUSAND ROPES, an emotional story about a Samoan father reconnecting with his daughter.
The role of Bobbie Draper in Syfy’s THE EXPANSE II marks Frankie’s first US television role.
