[[caption-width-right:349:You are now in love with Mr. Bamber.]]

British actor best known to Americans as Lee Adama on the 2000's version of ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]''. He has well known in his home nation of the UK; his most recent starring role as DS Matt Devlin on ''LawAndOrderUK''.

!!The incomplete list of shows Mr. Bamber starred and appeared in:
* ''Series/HoratioHornblower'': Made an appearance as Archie Kennedy in five of eight episodes.
* ''Series/TheScarletPimpernel'': First episode only as Lord Tony Dewhurst.
* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined''
* Series/{{House}}: Guest Star of the episode "The Confessions".
* ''LawAndOrderUK''

!!Tropes associated with Mr. Bamber:
* 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."
* ChronicallyKilledActor[=/=]DeadStarWalking: If he's starring in something, odds are pretty good it's only a matter of time before you're grieving for whoever he was playing. So many of his characters tend to get killed off (ironically, not his [[BattlestarGalacticaReimagined most famous one]]) that in two instances (on ''Series/ColdCase'' and GhostWhisperer), [[PosthumousCharacter the guy he played was *already* dead when the show started]].
* CunningLinguist: Speaks fluent French, Italian, can pull off an American accent so convincingly that many people are genuinely shocked to learn that he's British, and can even give his British accent an Irish tinge (as he did on LawAndOrderUK)
* FakeAmerican: He's adopted an American accent for nearly all of his US TV appearances. Most people have no idea he's British. His father is an American, so it's natural that he's familiar with that accent.
* FanCommunityNicknames: A vocal community of his fans call themselves Bamber Bunnies and run the eponymous [[http://www.bamberbunnies.com web page]], and fans of his character Archie Kennedy from ''Series/HoratioHornblower'' are known as Crumpeteers.
* EstrogenBrigadeBait: He tends to be this in most of the productions he stars in.
* OlderThanTheyLook: At 39 (which to be fair, is still relatively young), can pass for someone at least 5 years younger.
* ShirtlessScene: His best known one is the famous towel scene from BattlestarGalacticaReimagined, but there are quite a few others, all very nice, indeed.
