Adam Munson

Adam Munson

Adam Munson is a fictional character on CBS's daytime drama "As The World Turns". He is currently being portrayed by Matt Cavenaugh as of November 29, 2006. Initially thought to be the son of Margo Montgomery Hughes and her husband Tom Hughes, it later came out when Adam was as small child that his biological father was Margo's friend and colleague Hal Munson, resulting from an affair Margo and Hal had had. Though he had a bit of difficulty at first accepting this news, he eventually came to regard both Tom and Hal as his fathers.

While a teenager, he began a friendship with Abigail Williams, which later evolved into a romance, when the two were forced to become fugitives (when Abigail was a murder suspect; she was later cleared of the charges). The two headed to the West Coast together to enroll in UCLA in 2002, but later broke up. While in LA, Adam became a professional in the recording industry.

Adam returned to Oakdale in 2006, following the death of his father, Lt. Hal Munson. His brothers Casey and Will talked him into producing a recording for Will's wife, aspiring singer Gwen Norbeck. Though his initial interest in Gwen was strictly professional, he eventually became more and more obsessed with her, until he began attempting to sabotage Will and Gwen's marriage. Through a series of events, which resulted in Casey's arrest for stealing $10,000 in bonds intended to finish Gwen's recording (and which Adam planted in Gwen and Will's house to make it look like Will had a hand in the theft), Adam attempted, in February 2007, to leave town abruptly, but was intercepted in the woods (enroute to the highway) by Gwen. He attempted to force himself sexually on Gwen and Maddie Coleman attempted to come to Gwen's aid, hitting Adam over the head with a fallen tree branch, killing him.

It is later discovered that Adam was not dead. He goes into hiding for several weeks, sending Gwen mysterious packages. He finally reveals himself to Maddie and Gwen, tying Maddie up and attempting to rape Gwen. He is stopped by Will, who shows up with Casey. Will and Casey order Adam to leave town.
