British actor best known to Americans as Lee Adama on the 2000's version of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}''. He is well known in his home nation of the UK; and he had a starring role as DS Matt Devlin on ''Series/LawAndOrderUK''. Speaks fluent French and Italian (he studied them for his Modern Language degree and received 1st Class MA Honors, the highest level possible), can pull off an American accent so convincingly that many people are genuinely shocked to learn that he's British[[note]]Though born in London, Bamber's father is American and mother is Northern Irish. Bamber himself also holds dual citizenship in the United States and Ireland, as well as the UK, so it could be said that his FakeAmerican roles aren't ''quite'' fake[[/note]], (to the point where some have thought that his ''British'' accent is the fake one) and can even give his British accent an Irish tinge (as he did on ''Law and Order UK''), or a working-class one (as he did on ''The Smoke'').

* FakeNationality:
** FakeAmerican: SubvertedTrope. He's adopted a nearly flawless American accent for most of his US TV appearances but his father being an American explains his ease with adopting the accent and it automatically grants him US citizenship even though he was born in London.
** FakeIrish: Also a SubvertedTrope. He used an Irish brogue on ''Law And Order: UK'', but his mother being from Ireland explains his ease with this as well and like the "American" example, grants him Irish citizenship.
** He played an Australian as the titular ''John Doe: Vigilante''.
* FanCommunityNicknames: A vocal community of his fans call themselves Bamber Bunnies or members of "Team Bamber".



* OldShame: His feelings about the movie ''Ghost Rig'', given [[https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=jamie+bamber+autograph+ghost+rig his hilariously embarrassed reaction]] when it's mentioned to him. Not even the fact that he met his wife while filming it can change his opinion that "it was ''terrible''".
