!!Tropes associated with Mr. Bamber:
* ChronicallyKilledActor[=/=]DeadStarWalking: He's had so many of his characters killed off--''eight'', 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.
* CunningLinguist: 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, (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'').
* 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.
* FanCommunityNicknames: A vocal community of his fans call themselves Bamber Bunnies or members of "Team Bamber".
* MrFanservice: He's been portrayed as a lust object in most works he's starred in.
* 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''".
* 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?)
* 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).
