* ChronicallyKilledActor[=/=]DeadStarWalking: He's had so many of his characters killed off--''nine'', at last count, but not including his [[Series/BattlestarGalactica2003 most famous one]]--that in two instances (on ''Series/ColdCase'' and ''Series/GhostWhisperer''), [[PosthumousCharacter said character was ALREADY dead when the show started]] and another (on ''WebVideo/StarTrekContinues''), seemed to be lampshading this trend by outright making him a RedShirt.

** FakeIrish: Also a SubvertedTrope. He used an Irish brogue on ''Law And Order: UK'', but his mother being from Ireland explains his was with this as well and like the "American" example, automatically grants him Irish citizenship despite being born in London.

* 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.

* ShirtlessScene: He posed [[http://blog.urbanbohemian.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/jamiebamberuk300.jpg naked]] in an ad campaign for PETA to protest the bearskin caps used by the Queen's Guard. (Bearskin, bare skin, get it?)

* AdoredByTheNetwork:
** Unintentionally. When BBC America realized that it aired three of his shows all at once (''Law and Order UK'', ''Outcasts'', and ''Battlestar Galactica''), they decided to just run with it and ran [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PsCvxYBwV_Y an ad]] that jokes that BBC stood for "Bamber Broadcasting Corporation".
** TNT seems to love him even more, as evidenced by him having starring or guest roles on ''four'' of its shows--''Perception'', ''Monday Mornings'', ''Rizzoli & Isles'', and ''Major Crimes''.
** CBS seems to like him too--roles on ''Cold Case'', ''CSI: Miami'' and ''NCIS''.
* UsefulNotes/BritishAccents: His natural accent is upper-class London-based English, but he can adopt an Irish accent (unsurprising, because his mother is Irish) and a working-class accent as well.



* OlderThanTheyLook: At 25, he was able to convincingly play a 17-year-old Archie Kennedy in ''Hornblower''. Even now in his early 40's he can pass for someone at least 5 years younger.



* WhatBeautifulEyes: He has gorgeous blue eyes that have become a significant trait of many of his characters -- to the point where they were the last we saw of Matt Devlin on ''Law And Order: UK'' and his stint on ''Monday Mornings'' featured numerous close-ups in an apparent reference to this trope.

* BeautyInversion: Makeup and whatnot have done a very effective job of making this handsome man look like hell, resulting in considerable FanDisservice.
** Adama's weight gain in Season 3 of BSG.
** Zombie makeup in ''Ghost Whisperer''
** An unknown medical condition in ''House''.
** At the ending of the premier episode of ''The Smoke'', his character drunkenly pulls his pants down to reveal the severe burn injuries he suffered during the prologue. In a later episode, he's banged up after getting in a fight.
** He also gets quite bruised and battered in ''Star Trek Continues''.
* BreakoutCharacter: Young sailor Archie Kennedy was meant to only appear in the first episode of ''Hornblower''. However, Jamie Bamber's portrayal was so well-liked by the crew and the character was found to be a great foil to Hornblower's silent hero that works amazingly on-screen, that Archie was written in other parts of the miniseries. Rumour has it that he was only written out later because of ExecutiveMeddling from the Forrester estate.



* DawsonCasting: When he was 25, he was cast as a teenage midshipman Archie Kennedy. Other actors were also older than their characters, so it was fairly convincing.



* FakeIrish: Also a SubvertedTrope. He used a slight Irish brogue while on ''Series/LawAndOrderUK'', but has Irish ancestry and citizenship thanks to his mother.
* FanCommunityNicknames: A vocal community of his fans call themselves Bamber Bunnies or members of "Team Bamber", and fans of his character Archie Kennedy from ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' are known as Crumpeteers.

* OohMeAccentsSlipping: He does an admirable job with accents, but he himself said that he could hear whenever he had slipped, and that it had happened especially during the beginnings of ''Battlestar Galactica''. Additionally, public opinion seems to be that despite being from London, he had trouble maintaining a working-class accent on ''The Smoke'', as it was a distinct change from his natural upper-class one.
* ShirtlessScene: Nearly everything he appears in has him shirtless at some point.
** His best known one is the famous towel scene from ''Series/BattlestarGalactica2003''.
** His appearance on ''House'' even seems to lampshade this trend--he's shirtless, but ''his skin is peeling off''
** He posed [[http://blog.urbanbohemian.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/jamiebamberuk300.jpg naked]] in an ad campaign for PETA to protest the bearskin caps used by the Queen's Guard. (Bearskin, bare skin, get it?)

* WhatTheHellIsThatAccent: His American accent is flawless. . .as long as you don't try to determine just which part of the US his character is from. The most glaring example might be his complete lack of a Boston accent during his guest stint on ''Rizzoli & Isles''. And his accent in the unaired ''17th Precinct'' pilot is a bizarre hybrid of American, British (having just spent 3 years using his normal accent on ''Law & Order: UK'', he was presumably out of practice), and ''Canadian'' (the episode was filmed in Vancouver). There's also the abovementioned difficulty with turning his upper-class British accent into a working-class one.
