There is such much turmoil right now that, I wanted to share an example of Edward doing what he does best which is activism. In 1992, he organized a cleanup in Los Angeles in the aftermath of the LA Riots. He made appearances on on ABC News 7 encouraging families to keep their loved ones at home to keep them safe. He even went on to ask kids to come help with the clean up which ended up being 500 strong the following day.
I’ve added 3 interviews he gave on ABC News as well as a photo of him during the clean-up.
Edward discusses his final stunning scene of the series, filming Laura’s death scene which left them both highly emotional. He also talks about the infamous no alien clause in his contract.
Its finally here, the special Galacticast episode featuring Edward and so many more from the cast. The cast do a table read of the Battlestar Galactica Series Premiere “33“.
Edward discusses the launch of the YCP Live Reads as well as his life during quarantine.
Edward announced via his Twitter that the Latino Film Institute will be streaming live script readings from students in the Youth Cinema Project. Edward started the project and also stated that the scripts will be read by various TV & movie actors. You can view his announcement on YCP’s You Tube Channel by visiting our video vault link below.

The long awaited 9/11 drama Windows On The World directed by Michael Olmos (Edward’s son) and also starring Edward is finally to be released on the Latino Streaming service, Vix. This information was released via the Dealine website on April 2nd. It is noted in the article that the movie was to have a summer release, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic it instead will be exclusively premiere on the streaming channel.
Rick Najera who is a good friend of Edward hosted a live video chat with Edward where they discussed the current situation with the Corona Virus. During the chat they talked about how he was doing with self isolation, keeping in contact with his family, and much more.
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!
