It was announced back in February that, Edward would make an appearance on the Galacticast podcast hosted by Tricia Helfer. The episode finally dropped last night!
Today is a date that sees the anniversary of 3 movies that Edward was involved with in various capacities. The first is the 1988 hit movie Stand And Deliver where Edward starred as high school calculus teacher, Jaime Escalante. This movie based upon the true story of the teacher of the same name garnered an Academy Award at the 61st Award Ceremony. Go For Sisters is a 2013 movie that was produced and also co-starred Edward as a disgraced police officer who assists with the search for the missing son of one of two women. Last the 2011 movie América starring Lymari Nadal which he also appeared was also released on this day.
Welcome to your online source dedicated to actor & activist, Edward James Olmos. With a career spanning almost 50 years you are bound to have came across a show or movie you have seen him in. I was first introduced to his acting in the 90s when he portrayed the gruff Quintanilla family patriarch in the hit movie, Selena. It wasn’t until I watched his other notable work, Battlestar Galactica that I remembered enjoying him as an actor. Looking around social media I was surprised he didn’t have a comprehensive fansite dedicated to his work. I originally started out on Twitter but went back and forth on turning this hobby into a fansite. So here we are, the grand opening of the site!
As a welcome I have added HQ images of his 2015 appearance as Robert Gonzales on Marvel’s Agents Of SHIELD as well as the 2003 Battlestar Galactica Mini-Series which started his 4 season role as the gruff but fatherly, Admiral Adama. In addition, Edward attended Pensacola Comic Con (Pensacon) this weekend so I have some photos, and live interview he did for the local news channel as well!
