Talk:Carolanne Adama/Archive 1

From Battlestar Wiki, the free, open content Battlestar Galactica encyclopedia and episode guide

Does anyone know the name of the actress? She's not listed under "Act of Contrition" on IMDB, and 2 of the 3 hits for "Caroline Adama" on google are on the Battlestar Wiki. -- JohnReese

  • After looking at her picture, I half wonder if they used Tricia Helfer...Kuralyov 11:36, 15 September 2005 (EDT)
I actually wonder if it's not Starbuck with some neck makeup. The jawline is very similar. I, too, was bothered by the lack of an actress name in this episode, so I checked: She's uncredited in the episode. At least, uncredited as Caroline Adama. --Day 17:15, 15 September 2005 (EDT)

Fleet Connections

Caroline (whose name we know from Act of Contrition) didn't have fleet connections. She and Bill Adama were married at least ten years before her was furloughed (rough guess, based on Lee being in his early 30s). It was Adama's second wife, referred to as Anne in Scattered, who helped him back into the fleet. --April Arcus 16:48, 8 December 2005 (EST)


Scifipedia has an interesting article that Jamie Bamber wrote that lists her name as being Carolanne. Have we ever seen it written before? We may want to rethink the spelling if not. --Steelviper 14:31, 28 November 2006 (CST)

Interesting... For now, let's just create a redirect using that spelling, just in the event someone tries to search for it here. -- Joe Beaudoin So say we all - Donate 20:47, 28 November 2006 (CST)
Good call. It looks like there's some inconsistencies in the facts anyway, so we may want to take it with a grain of salt. Might be worth an "external link" on Lee's page though. --Steelviper 22:41, 28 November 2006 (CST)

Name Change

I can have User:InterBot go an change everything to the correct spelling. Shane (T - C - E) 10:35, 19 February 2007 (CST)

Go-go-InterBot! --Spencerian 10:39, 19 February 2007 (CST)
When's this gonna happen? I have been refraining from making changes. --Mercifull (Talk/Contribs) 03:48, 27 February 2007 (CST)

Eye Colour

The creators go to the effort of having Edward James Olmos wear blue contacts over his brown eyes to remain consistent with having a blue eyed son. (William_Adama#Notes) Yet when we see Carolanne Adama in Adama's mind (A Day in the Life), she has brown eyes. If my understanding of dominant and recessive genes is correct it is highly unlikely - if not impossible - that she could be Lee's mother. Hdurdle 22:04, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

It is possible that she has both genes which makes it a toss-up between brown or blue for Lee. -- FrankieG 22:10, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
Ah, of course - I forgot about carrying two copies of every gene! D'oh. Thanks! -- Hdurdle 22:18, 20 April 2008 (UTC)
