Dear Mr. Olmos,
I became acquainted with you during your days with Miami Vice.
My father was a Marine, and I always liked the way your character spoke softly and carried a big stick.
Your interpretation and ‘the look’ you would give Sonny and Rico to put them back on track often reminded me of my father.
I came to Florida in the 80’s and acted a bit in local theatre, and once in awhile got called up to do equity seasonal stuff.
Nowadays I work for a local education administrator, but laugh at the commercials I see, telling my spouse “I could do that!”
It is never too late. I did some radio before and enjoyed that, and sing at open mics anywhere, I learned to play guitar in Catholic church as a kid.
If you are ever in Miami again, give me a call or e-mail me. I would love to have dinner with you, a bucket list thing for me.

Dear Mr. Olmos, After a break of several years, my husband and I are *re*watching all of Battlestar Galactica and it is just as gripping as it was the first time. I don’t think any other SciFi has achieved the level of BSG in its intelligence and depth. Thanks and love it!
Judith & Richard
Just wanted to take a moment to say thank you. You’ve been one of my favorite actors for a very long time and I grew up watching you in various productions. Often we fans forget to just say thanks for being awesome. So thanks!
Hello Dear Sir,
I met you more than a year ago at a ComiCon Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband, Richard. He passed away shortly afterwards. You signed an autograph to both of us on the front of a BSG DVD cover. It is one of the few things I have left that is for both he and I. Most of the cards, letters, etc. of the past 20 years were lost or thrown away when my family cleaned out my house, but your message survived. I have it out, and I look at it every single day, and I remember how happy we were to meet you. Thank you so very, very much for providing me with such a wonderful memory.
It’s a real pleasure to watch your performance in the Battlestar Galactica series.
It feels a bit strange to say – but I think watching the character you play can elevate one to be a better person.
Thank you for this show.
Best regards sir and many greetings from my wife and me from Lublin, Poland.
I feel as if I just came home. I have highly enjoyed BSG and Miami Vice for many years. I truly value your high standards that you yourself live by and while on the shows that you worked on. Tell you what, you would have been the best Klingon Officer outside of Michael Ansara who played Kommander Kang. Heck yes! Survive and succeed. When you were on Miami Vice, no one got in your way of getting things done and in an honorable fashion. You are for sure on tough hombre! Guess that is why you are loved by millions! So say we all!
Mr. Olmos, first I would like to say I enjoy your movies very much. Stand and deliver is in my top ten. The reason I am reaching out to you is this. Back in 1981 I met you at East LA collage and you where kind enough to take a picture with me and at the same time Q-VO magazine also took the picture. I was 12 years old at the time and it was awesome seeing my picture with you in the magazine. In case you ever wondered who the kid was it was me now im 46 years old. Back then we had 3 copies of the magazine and we have no Idea where they are at. On Sunday I went to e-bay and found someone who was selling it. I hope I get the bid it ends today. I was wondering if I do get the magazine I would love for you to sign it for me. back in 81 you signed a piece of paper for me and I still have it. My uncle back then played in a band called Mix Company, Sly Slick and Wicked also performed and so did Johnny Chincas. My uncle is good friends with Rudy Salas of Tierra my uncles name is Michael Chavez. If there is a way to get your signature I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you for your time
Sr. Olmos, Gracias por sus inspiraciones. My three inspirations for becoming a Spanish teacher in Compton: My homies from Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic school growing up, Los Lobos and Eddie Olmos. From “Stand and Deliver” to “Selena.” My students are always like “that guy is in every movie you show Galope.” My reply, “I know, right?” On behalf of all teachers, we raise una horchata grande en tu honor.
I just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for the kindness, respect and genuine warmth with which you greeted my older brother Joe this last weekend at your signing in Santa Clara. Your recognition of his service as a Vietnam Vet was more important to him than you could know and I honestly think it was healing moment for him.
Thank you so much.
God bless you.
