About Jason O’Mara
Jason O’Mara made his U.S. television debut in 2001 as “Lt. Thomas Meehan” in the Emmy-award winning and critically acclaimed HBO miniseries Band of Brothers. The following year, O’Mara starred as a regular on the CBS espionage series, The Agency. He then continued to establish himself by taking multi-episode character arcs on several hit television series’ including Grey’s Anatomy, Men in Trees and The Closer. In 2006, O’Mara starred opposite Kyle MacLachlan in the crime drama series In Justice.
In 2007, O’Mara made his feature film debut opposite Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: Extinction. Returning to television in 2008, he notably starred as time-traveling detective “Sam Tyler” in ABC’s U.S. adaptation of the British drama series Life on Mars. Although the series only aired for one season, O’Mara received critical accolades for his performance.
Born and raised in Ireland, O’Mara never planned on acting as a profession. He was an avid rugby player and it wasn’t until he suffered a sports injury that he was introduced to acting. While recovering, O’Mara tried out for the school play and won a part. The thrill of opening night sealed his fate, and his former passion for sports transferred to acting. He then attended Trinity College in Dublin, where he received his degree in drama.
O’Mara has one son, David.
