Colm Feore is a Canadian-American actor born in Boston, Massachusetts. Within the Galactica universe, Feore appears on-screen as Richard Adar, the President of the Twelve Colonies at the time of the Cylon attack.

Feore graduated from Ridly College in St. Catherines, Ontario, and attended the National Theater School in Montreal, Quebec. He became a member of the Acting Company at the famous Stratford Festival of Canada, where he performed such roles as Oberon in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Petruchio in The Taming of the Shrew and the title characters in Richard III and Hamlet.

While not performing at Stratford, Feore appeared in minor roles in American and Canadian film and television productions. He shot to fame in Canada by portraying former Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau in a 2002 CBC miniseries. The actress portraying Trudeau's then-wife Margaret, Polly Shannon, is the real-life girlfriend[citation needed] of Callum Keith Rennie, better known in Battlestar Galactica as Leoben Conoy, a Humanoid Cylon.

Feore is perhaps best-known internationally for his intelligent portrayals of varying characters as diverse as pianist Glenn Gould and Marcus Andronicus in the 1999 remake of Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus. He also portrayed the Necromongers' Lord Marshal in The Chronicles of Riddick. He recently appeared in the film Bon Cop, Bad Cop, which has become one of the highest-grossing Canadian films of all time.

Feore currently resides in Stratford, Ontario, Canada, with his wife Donna and their three children.
