I expected him to talk about his roles, with maybe some funny insights - but Olmos consistently took the crowd to deeper subjects including the way we perceive heroes in the United States, his speeches at the United Nations on race as well as thoughts on the Los Angeles riots in the 1990s.
On his acting, his passion for his various roles came shining through - through great stories on being an Actor and Director on Battlestar, getting Stand & Deliver developed and made - as well as extremely interesting stories about Miami Vice and Blade Runner (who knew that Olmos had impacted the direction of the movie relative to whether Deckard was a Replicant or not...)
All in all - pretty awesome Q&A. Video, audio and photos below. Please note - this is the first hour of an hour and a half Q&A. Video of the rest coming soon.
