->''I'm like the R-Patz of computer game voice overs."

A British voice actor who has also appeared in several live action shows.

2011 was a fantastic year for Howden, who was relatively unknown until he landed his [[BreakoutRole breakout role]] as Anders in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII''. Only months after its release, it was announced that he would be playing the protagonist of ''VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}}'', as well as the titular character in the game of the movie ''[[Franchise/{{Tintin}} The Adventures of Tintin: Secret of the Unicorn]]''. He also attended the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/London_MCM_Expo London MCM Expo]] in October 2011 alongside ''Dragon Age II'' co-star Creator/GideonEmery, where they made history being the first British guest voice actor panelists at the convention. During the end of the year, he starred in the production of ''[[http://www.custompractice.co.uk/the-malcontent-winter-2011/ The Malcontent]]'' at the White Bear Theatre in London.

Outside of acting, Adam Howden is known for his outspoken nature and penchant for ToiletHumor on [[http://twitter.com/#!/A_HOWDZ Twitter]], where he has acquired many devoted fans- most of which [[EstrogenBrigade happen to be female]].

!!Tropes:
* EvenTheGuysWantHim: He's [[http://twitter.com/#!/A_HOWDZ/media/slideshow?url=pic.twitter.com%2FmVGUEvIk tweeted]] about being hit on by men multiple times.
* GrayEyes: A lovely pair. With his youthful and playful outlook that shines through during his interviews, he falls under category 3.
* HandsomeLech: A more likable version, but certainly one nonetheless.
* KindHeartedCatLover: A trait that he shares with his ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' character. In fact, during [[http://www.mcmbuzz.com/2011/10/10/mcm-buzz-podcast-21/ a podcast]] one of his cats came into the room meowing loudly, clearly wanting to join in the conversation.
* NamesTheSame: As an Australian cinematographer. For a while, they accidentally shared a page on IMDB.
* OneOfUs: Howden is addicted to twitter, and loves joking around with his fans. He's also a fanboy of fellow ''Franchise/DragonAge'' voice actress Creator/FeliciaDay.
* TheOtherDarrin: He's been the second person to voice every single one of his leading roles. Greg Ellis voiced Anders in ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOriginsAwakening'', [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]] was originally voiced in Japanese, Fenton Paddock was originally voiced in German, and Jamie Bell voices Tintin in the coinciding movie.
* PromotedFanboy: He's a huge fan of Creator/{{Nintendo}}, and [[https://twitter.com/A_HOWDZ/status/505460922455191552 was very proud]] when [[VideoGame/{{Xenoblade}} Shulk]] was announced as a playable character in the fourth ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'' game.
