Biography:
For more than 30 years, pioneering actor, filmmaker and activist Edward James Olmos has been creating memorable characters in projects that have burned themselves into our imagination. Olmos received his first big in the 1970s with a role in the groundbreaking Chicano play Zoot Suit, for which he earned a Tony award nomination. From there, he began racking up parts in classic films such as Virus, Wolfen, Blade Runner, Selena and Stand and Deliver, for which Olmos became the first American-born Latino to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. And his work in television is no less impressive. Olmos won a Golden Globe and an Emmy for his work on Miami Vice, but perhaps his most beloved role is that of Admiral William Adama on the Sci-Fi Channel's critically acclaimed, award-winning reimagining of Battlestar Galactica. Whether protesting for those in need or making art to feed the soul, Edward James Olmos is a man dedicated to giving of himself and a beloved star (literally â€" asteroid 5608 Olmos is named in his honor).
