~ One of Adam's earliest lines in Saw.

Adam Stanheight is one of the two protagonists of the first Saw film. He was in the first film and briefly seen in the third. Despite surviving his test, Adam was left to die by the end of the first film.

He was portrayed by Leigh Whannell, who also played David in the original Saw short film.


Observation And Photography Of Lawrence

Adam was a freelance photographer who was struggling for money. His latest client, Detective David Tapp, hired him for the observation and photography of Doctor Lawrence Gordon, a suspect in the Jigsaw killings. He was successful in stalking a taking photos of Gordon, but failed in not being seen.


Adam returned to his apartment. However, he fell asleep in the dark room while developing his photos. When he awoke he noticed how the power was out. While investigating a strange noise he heard, he noticed the mechanical Billy The Puppet, and was then attacked by Amanda Young in a sinister pig mask. She eventually knocked him out.


Adam was taken into a fake bathroom, along with Doctor Gordon. The Jigsaw killer, John Kramer, disguised himself as a dead body in the room. Adam awoke inside a bathtub, not knowing that he accidently let his key flow down the drain. He quickly noticed how he was chained up, leading to him screaming for help. He also noticed the dead body in the center of the room. Adam nearly vomited at the sight of it. Eventually Gordon woke up. Adam pretended that he didn't know him. Adam was beginning to suspect why he was in there, but withheld this knowledge from Gordon. Eventually, Adam and Gordon decided to read the tapes they where provided with. Adam discovered that Gordon had to kill him to save his family. Eventually, Gordon found a phone that let him call his wife. She told him not to trust Adam's lies. It was here that Adam decided to tell Gordon that he had been spying on Gordon for a detective. Having run out of time, Gordon reluctantly proceeded to shoot Adam. Adam fell to the floor. This caused John's assistant Zep Hindle to enter the room and attempt to kill Gordon. Adam, still alive, managed to kill Zep by bashing his head in. Adam collapsed to the floor. Due to the terrible agony and trauma of his situation, Adam burst into tears. Sobbing, he begged Gordon not leave him. Gordon assured him that he will get help, then crawled away. Then, John, still disguised, awoke and revealed himself. Adam grabbed a gun and tried to shoot him, but John tased him. John turned the light off and left the room, slamming the door. Leaving Adam screaming.


Due to nightmares about Adam's ghost haunting her, Amanda Young decided to mercy kill Adam, before he suffered a more painful fate. She attempted to suffocate him with ceramic wrap. Adam awoke and attempted to break free. This lead to him bashing face into a toilet, knocking him out. Amanda soon suffocated him. Amanda left Adam's corpse behind.
