Luke Pasqualino is William Adama of SYFY's Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome



LUKE PASQUALINO revealed the actor who is playing William Adama in the SYFY channels upcoming prequel Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome - Luke Pasqualino. (Did EW really have to use that pic that makes him look 12, lol.)

Pasqualino is a 21 year old actor from the UK that was featured in the 2007 British tv series Skins, with the American version now playing on MTV.

Ben Cotton (The Chronicles of Riddick) will be playing Adama's commanding officer/partner, Coker Fasjovik.

Head on over here to check out an overview for the initial episode (spoilers) and to view some concept art.

Official Character Details:

Pasqualino will star as the young, talented fighter pilot William Adama, a recent Academy graduate who finds himself assigned to the newest Battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with Coker (Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 45 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.



From the offical press release:

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20's and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet... the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous topsecret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.
