Max Adler from Switched at Birth spreads awareness about Muscular Dystrophy

Max Adler, who plays Miles “Tank” Conroy on ABC Family’s Switched at Birth (SAB), becomes the good guy on this show—which will be different from who he played on FOX series Glee from 2009 to 2012.  On Glee, he played Dave Karofsky, a character who threw slushies in people’s faces—being a bully since he was gay.  Max feels honored to be on the SAB show, since he’s learning so much from other deaf actors and other cast members.  View the interview clip here.

MAX ADLER

Born in Queens, New York, Adler was raised in Scottsdale, Arizona.  He had a large cactus in his backyard, and warns that some cacti can attack you when you walk by them.  From his role on Glee, he became involved with It Gets Better Project, an internet-based nonprofit organization that targets LGBT youth to reduce suicide by educating them that LGBT members can be successful in life as adults.  Also, at a more personal level, Adler works with the Muscular Dystrophy Association with a goal to find treatment or a cure for the disease.  This is because his mother and grandmother have passed away from the disease.

Watch Switched at Birth Mondays at 8 pm PST on ABC Family.
