It’s been gratifying to follow the career of James from his time on SG1 and through the franchise and ever onwards with The CW and in particular Arrow.

Arrow “Code Of Silence”

After the news broke that a Stargate Atlantis regular would be appearing in an upcoming episode of Arrow we all got a little giddy, the fact that it would be the second episode directed by James Bamford only added to the expectation. James of course was a stunt performer on SG1, Atlantis and Universe as well as being the stunt co-ordinator on Atlantis and Universe. In the 14th episode of the fourth season of Arrow entitled “Code of Silence” we had a number of actors who had appeared on Stargate, this week we saw the return of Ryan Robbins (Conklin) as well as guest appearances by Rachel Luttrell (Rosie) and Daniel Cudmore (Jackhammer) who were part of the mercenary outfit The Demolition Team who really gave the good guys a run for their money. To add icing we also got the return of Laura Hoffman played by Enid-Raye Adams which came as a surprise, I don’t always take a great deal of notice of opening credits when the action is thick and fast so yes I admit I was a little fanboyish when she appeared at the party:)

The 26th of February is the day James “Bam Bam” Bamford celebrates his birthday and to many his name and face will be unfamiliar but he is one of the unsung heroes of the Stargate franchise. A stunt man, co-ordinator and actor he worked a little on SG1 but made his mark on Atlantis and Universe as well as doing work on Sanctuary and Flash Gordon. Happy Birthday James.
