Personal Quote:

I didn't really capitalise on that early success because I had high artistic ideals and they didn't involve commercial cinema. That said, becoming an international film star takes its toll - there's a price to be paid for being recognised all the time, so I'm quite happy not to be. See more »

Trivia:

Peter admits that he initially became interested in acting because he liked a girl who was apart of a local theater group, and joined to impress her! See more »
