* 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''".

* ChronicallyKilledActor[=/=]DeadStarWalking: He's had so many of his characters killed off--''nine'', at last count--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.

* 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.
