George W. Milias and Ama Quiambao

This article is about a California politician. For the unrelated Alabama governor, see George Wallace.

George Wallace Milias (September 20, 1925 – October 1, 1977) was a Republican California State Assemblyman, who represented the 22nd Assembly District from 1962 to 1970.

Born in Gilroy, California, Milias earned his B.A. with a double major in History and Political Science from San Jose State College and earned his A.M. in California Political History from Stanford University.

Milias served as a member of the Santa Clara County Planning Commission from 1958 to 1962, serving as its Vice Chair in 1961 and Chair in 1962. He also served on the Santa Clara County Grand Jury from 1954 to 1956, serving as Foreman in 1956.

In Republican politics, Milias served as President of the California Republican Assembly from 1957 to 1958 and Chairman of the California Republican Party from 1958 to 1960. He also served as Vice Chairman of the California delegation to the 1960 Republican National Convention that nominated California Republican Richard Nixon for President of the United States. He was also a delegate to the 1968 Convention that again nominated Nixon for President. In 1960, Milias was named to the National Young Republican Hall of Fame.

Elected to the Assembly in 1962, Milias served as Vice Chair of the Fish and Game Committee and of the Conservation and Wildlife Committees during his entire legislative tenure. He also served as Chairman of the Natural Resources and Conservation Committee and a member of the Elections and Constitutional Amendments Committee and the Government Administration Committee.

Instead of seeking a fifth term in the Assembly in 1970, Milias sought the Republican nomination for California Secretary of State but lost the nomination to James L. Flournoy, the first African American nominated for partisan statewide office in California, though Flournoy went on to lose the general election to future Governor Jerry Brown, the son of former Governor Pat Brown.

In the 1974 election, Milias was the Republican nominee for California's 13th congressional district but was defeated by San Jose Mayor Norman Mineta.

Wallace was Milias's mother's madien name.

Milias married Mary Ann in 1962.

Her first play was "Ang Mga Tagahabi", directed by Rolando Tinio (an adaptation of The Weavers by Gerhart Hauptmann), when she was a drama student at the Philippine Normal University in Manila in the 1970s. She later earned her Master's degree in Drama Education from the University of the Philippines. She became a regular performer at the Teatro Pilipino and Bulwagang Gantimpala theatre groups at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in Manila.

Ama made her film debut in 1982, when she starred in the movie Himala (Miracle), directed by Ishmael Bernal. Film director Bernal wanted to cast theatre and radio actors in Himala, so theatre director Rolando Tinio recommended the casting of Quiambao.

Her role in Himala earned her a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the Gawad Urian Awards in 1982. A restored version of Himala was screened at the 2012 Venice Film Festival to mark its 20th anniversary.

Three decades later, Quiambao was cast as Lusing in the 2012 film, Diablo, which was directed by Mes de Guzman and produced by his wife, Rhea Operaña de Guzman. Lusing was a very serious, strict character in the film, which Quiambao described as the opposite of her personality.

Her work in Diablo earned Quiambao the first acting award of her career. In 2012, she won "Best Actress in the New Breed category" at the 8th Cinemalaya Independent Film Festival. In a later interview, Quiambao described her reaction to winning the honor, "I was strangely calm,” she recalled. “I didn’t feel cold; I didn’t cry. I was glad that the trophy was presented to me by Iza . I’ve worked with her a number of times on TV and in the movies. I love that girl." She also said that she was thrilled to see other veteran Filipino actors win Cinemalaya awards that years, including Anita Linda and Eddie Garcia, which she called "the night of senior citizens."
