SAM ADEGOKE

Jeff Colby in “Dynasty”

 

Sam Adegoke stars as Jeff Colby, a (newly revealed to be) Carrington cousin, and tech genius billionaire looking to take his company to new heights, in The CW’s hit series “Dynasty.” Jeff’s war with Blake (Grant Show) may sometimes go cold, but it never goes out.

 

Born in Lagos Nigeria, and raised in St. Paul Minnesota, Adegoke is a Nigerian American actor who is currently based in Los Angeles and Atlanta. His big break came when he was chosen from thousands of submissions as the 2015 winner of the ABC Discovers national talent competition, which landed him a one-year holding deal with ABC. Shortly after, he appeared in his first major television role on the crime thriller “Wicked City.” Adegoke would quickly go on to amass a host of credits including “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” “Orders,” “Code Black,” and “NCIS: LA.” He began turning heads with his performances on the final seasons of “Murder in the First” and “Switched at Birth” as well as the Michael Jackson biopic “Searching for Neverland.”

 

Most recently, Adegoke wrapped production as one of the leads of the indie feature “8000 Shots.”

 

Outside of acting, Adegoke caters to a myriad of artistic interests including clothing design, music, painting and drawing. He’s also an avid motorcycle enthusiast and enjoys travelling and spending time with his family.
