The Galactica delegation at FedCon 2018 will be reinforced by the visit of James Callis, a popular representative of the popular SF series.
There are two types of people. Those who say “It’s Gaius Baltar” from the TV Series Battlestar Galactica when they see James Callis, and others recognize him for a very different role: Tom in all three Bridget Jones movies! Apart from these two roles, however, James had a variety of others – both in TV series, as well as in feature films.
Born in London, the actor first studied English and literature at the University of York. After graduating, James got a place at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art where he also graduated.
Apart from his roles in film and television James Callis was also seen in some West End productions, including Old Wicked Songs. His recurring roles in series include those of Major Tim Forrester in 9 episodes by Soldier Soldier, Gabriel McDow in Flash Forward, Dr. Trevor Grant in 10 episodes Eureka, John Merchiston in CSI: Las Vegas, Lucien Sayer in Matador and Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett in Gallipoli. Also in Arrow you could see him, where he played in the episode “The Dodger” (1:15) just those Dodger.
In 2001, James Callis was involved in the film Beginner’s Luck as a writer and director, where he starred alongside Julie Delpy. Jane Austen fans know him again as Colonel Andrews in Austenland. Most recently he played Athan in the TV series 12 Monkeys, and the horror film House by the Lake, in which he plays the lead role of Scott, which was completed in 2017.
