This former Viper pilot (callsign "Apollo") and only surviving son of Admiral Adama has been promoted to commanding officer of the battlestar Pegasus. Although he controls his emotions as he would a fighter craft, his critical role in humanity's fight for survival has forced him to acknowledge and accept the trauma of his brother Zak's death, a process that has left him closer both to his father and to Zak's one-time fiancée, Kara Thrace. Despite this newfound commitment to family and friends, his loyalty to the law and to his own moral code still rules his actions.

Jamie St. John Bamber Griffith was born in London to an American father, Ralph, and a Northern Irish mother, Liz. He spent his early school years in Paris, where his father worked as a management consultant. His mother had trained and worked as an actress in London before starting a family and moving to France. Jamie is one of seven siblings, having a younger brother and a younger sister as well as four older half-brothers from his father's first marriage, all of whom were raised as a single family. It was Jamie's mother who first awakened his love of drama while she ran a children's theater group at the American Cathedral in Paris; his first role was as the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz, cast by his mother, who as yet lacked a daughter.

It was as a child that Jamie did his first paid acting work, dubbing a French film into English while in Paris and then doing the odd TV commercial after moving back to the U.K. at the age of 7. At St. Paul's School in London he developed his love for the theater and for all things athletic. He became School Captain in his final year, before going to Cambridge University to study French and Italian literature. While there he played university rugby and performed in many theatrical productions. He also spent a study year in Pavia, Italy, before graduating with first-class honors.

While Jamie has always wanted to act, his acceptance to the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art marked the decision to make it his career. Still at LAMDA, he was cast in his first professional role, as Archie Kennedy in TV's Horatio Hornblower miniseries. His recent credits include Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks' HBO miniseries, Band of Brothers, as well as Daniel Deronda for the BBC. Jamie was a series regular on the ITV shows Peak Practice and Ultimate Force, and most recently portrayed the role of Price Hal in Henry IV, Parts 1 and 2, at the Bristol Old Vic.

Jamie has since worked steadily in TV, film and radio in Europe and the United States.

I think he's far sexier in Hornblower and Peak Practice than in BSG... Something about his fake accent puts me off.
