            Peter Brooke


            Born in Toronto of American and British parents, Peter is a tri-national. Having lived in New York and Los Angeles, he now resides in London, England with his wife Paula, a screenwriter, and their 3 children. They are all now seriously thinking about getting a labradoodle.

            Peter first took over the role of Captain Jack Ross in the West End's A Few Good Men, written by Aaron Sorkin and also starring Rob Lowe. He then played Phil in the West End premiere of Arthur Miller's Resurrection Blues, directed by the late, great Robert Altman, and produced by Kevin Spacey. He appeared again in the West End as John Williamson in David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross with Jonathan Pryce and Aiden Gillan.

            In the US drama series, The Fugitive Chronicles, he took on the title role in the Danny Ray Horning episode, portraying the wily but misunderstood convict that eluded capture for so long in the early 1990's. He has worked consistently for the BBC in such shows as Dr Who, Over Here, Small Island, Billy the Kid, Sherlock and Spooks. In Spooks, he played the terrorist Peter who was hunted and killed by MI5 agent Rupert Penry Jones. In the final scenes leading up to his death, he was set on fire and then hung by his feet from a 10 story hi-rise. He did these stunts himself.

            While shooting the cowboy western Billy the Kid in the Spanish desert, Peter's horse, Mephisto, dehydrated and unnerved by a gunshot, bucked and sped off along a steep canyon ledge. Peter asserts that those moments before getting the horse under control were more adrenaline-filled than any amusement park ride before or since!

            Peter has just finished filming Red Lights with Robert DeNiro.
