Jamie Bamber, who played Lee “Apollo” Adama in Battlestar Galactica, is appearing in a new ad campaign for PETA decrying black bears killed for their fur for the Queen’s Guards’ ceremonial caps. “I initially decided to do the PETA ad because a great friend of mine in L.A., Lucy Davis, had just done a similar ad, and I love Lucy and it was a cause I didn’t know about – I’ll be honest,” he said. “So as soon as Lucy opened my eyes, I was thrilled to join her and do my bit.
“The obvious alternative is to make caps out of faux fur. You know, use synthetic materials to avoid killing a beautiful animal. They’re not to keep warm. It’s not particularly freezing outside Buckingham Palace. You could wear something else. And you could certainly wear faux fur.”
