Jamie Bamber was born Jamie St John Bamber Griffith on April 3, 1973 in Hammersmith, London to American and Irish parents. He spent his formative years in France, where he attended a bilingual school until the age of eight, when the family moved back to England.
Jamie's stage debut was at his all-boys school, where he played the "Wicked Witch" in 'The Wizard of Oz'. He went on to attend St. Johns College, Cambridge University, where he received a first Class Honours Degree in Modern Languages (Italian and French).
In 1996, Jamie went to the London Academy of Dramatic Arts (LAMDA) where he completed a post graduate course. Once graduating, he immediately landed his first role - that of "Midshipman Archie Kennedy" in the hugely popular series 'Hornblower', opposite Ioan Gruffudd and Robert Lindsay.
Jamie's other television credits include 'The Scarlet Pimpernel', playing "Lord Tony Dewhurst" opposite Richard E. Grant, 'Poirot, the Murder of Roger Ackroyd', 'Lady Audleys Secret', 'Peak Practice', 'Band of Brothers' and the recent 'Battlestar Galactica' as Captain Lee "Apollo" Adama.
His foray into film came with the Scots film, 'Ghost Rig' (formally known as 'The Devil's Tattoo').
