Galacticon 2013 – Latin Panel – Olmos and Morales

Galacticon3, held in Houston May 23-26, hosted many panels over the course of the weekend.  The first large panel of Saturday was titled “Latin Panel” and featured Edward James Olmos (Admiral William Adama – Battlestar Galactica) and Esai Morales (Joseph Adama – Caprica).

Olmos and Morales shared their opinions on the lack of latin actors working in Hollywood, the typecasting of latin actors who are offered roles and Mr. Olmos shared some very interesting facts about the amount of screen time that hispanics receive in television and film. I can’t remember the exact numbers, but it basically boiled down to this – Although hispanics make up roughly 16% of the population in the U.S., only 2% of all screen time features hispanic actors.

Here are some images from the panel.
