Ben Stark - Battlestar Galactica

Ben Stark is a fictional male Human student/terrorist in the Battlestar Galactica television series who was played on screen by Avan Jogia. Ben Stark was a student at the same school as the daughters of Joseph Adama and Daniel Graystone.

He becomes a religious fanatic who spurns the religion that the the majority believed in to be a follower of The Soldiers of the One. It is his actions that lead to the deaths of the daughters and the eventual creation of the Cylons. He had been manipulated by Sister Clarice Willow into carrying out the atrocity.

Ben had persuaded Zoe Graystone and Lacy Rand to come with him and move to Gemenon where they would be free to follow the polythesis religion. The three of them were about to board a Matlav train when Lacy pulled out at the last moment. When Zoe discovered what was happening, she wanted to get out but couldn't. Ben Stark exploded a bomb on the train. Not only were Zoe and Ben killed but also Tamara Adama, the daughter of lawyer Joseph Adama.

The actions of Ben's suicide attack prompted Daniel Graystone to come with the Cylon idea. Daniel reached out to Joseph Adama with the idea because he needed help in obtaining electronics that had been designed and built by the Vergis Corporation on Tauron.

Ben Stark is also the name of a central character in the Game of Thrones. They are completely different characters, Ben Stark in G.O.T. was a leader of an army whereas the Ben Stark here was a religious terrorist.
