Biography

British actor Jamie Bamber was already a favorite for television audiences on both sides of the Atlantic before he stepped into the role of Lee "Apollo" Adama on "Battlestar Galactica" (The Sci Fi Channel, 2004- ). He had distinguished himself in dramatic roles in "Hornblower" (ITV, 1998-2003) and "Band of Brothers" (HBO, 2001), but neither was adequate preparation for the overwhelming fan response generated by the re-imagined version of the campy 1978-79 television series. In fact, the program's popularity eventually allowed him to cross over to other American network programs and features.
