Welcome to Jason O’Mara’s official site.
One thing we fans have in common is that we are all familiar with some aspect of Jason’s work. I became a fan through his portrayal of the multi-layered Sam Tyler: Cop, Astronaut, Time Traveler, kid who misses his dad, psychotic, and confused. Some of my friends recommended I watch The Closer and check out the fiery character Bill Croelick, and while watching Criminal Minds, I got to check out the creepy Mill Creek Killer.
Jason has shown a talent for playing both sides, bright and dark, very convincingly. Now we are looking forward to Terra Nova.
In Terra Nova’s premier we will find that humankind, with their greed and shortsightedness, has made our world almost totally uninhabitable and on the brink of destruction. Someone has developed a device that can catapult you 85 million years into the past (one way) and a number of families have traveled back to try to start over. Jim Shannon is a husband and father, who, for some reason is in prison and has to escape to join his family on their trek back in time. Upon arrival there is already dissent in the camp, and they face cannibals, dinosaurs, and who knows what other dangers.
We are patiently awaiting the September premiere, and Jason has put together this great site so we fellow fans can enjoy discussing the show and many other features (behind the scenes pics and video for example). A lot of us have had the pleasure of interacting with Jason on Twitter and Facebook, and now have reason to admire not only his acting but his keen sense of humor and kind nature.
Between the show and this site, Terra Nova looks to be a fun experience for all of us to share! I also have set up a wiki fan site for anyone who wants to join in and post pics for the show and the other stars we will be getting to know.
Looking forward to enjoying many great seasons of Terra Nova with you all.
