Adm. William Adama, "Battlestar Galactica" (2003): Edward James Olmos played the commander of the Galactica as the proverbial strong, silent type, a lifelong military man who experienced devastating loss, including the death of his wife and youngest son. His silence and emotional distance create all kinds of trouble with his surviving son, Apollo (Jamie Bamber), and his daughter-in-spirit, Kara Thrace. Of all of his relationships, though, it's his interactions with Laura Roslin that reveal the most about Adama's guarded interior, his unwavering conviction and his shopworn heart.
