How I started
Peter’s interest in Film making started at the age of 14. Using a Sankyo Super 8 Camera, he would direct, shoot and edit his own shorts and stop motion animation films. From Kung fu movies, with friends in Horror Make, to blowing up his model train set with fireworks, no genre was beyond this young man’s grasp!
In this time Peter had always dreamed of becoming a stuntman, and action director. So…
Starting in the Industry
At 17, Peter started working as a Supporting Artist in Film and Television, on most films and television shows filmed in and around London gaining experience in the Industry whilst also training to become a Stuntman.
At the age of 24 he completed his training and was accepted onto the British Equity Stunt Register.
Peter has worked for the past 25 years constantly as a Stunt Performer\Double, ascending to Assistant Stunt Coordinator and onto becoming a fully fledged Stunt Co-ordinator and 2nd Unit Action Director.
His work has taken him all over the world from the Desserts of Morocco to the Jungles of Belize.
In 2004 Peter was nominated for the first time at The World Taurus Stunt Awards for “Best Fire Stunt in a Film” for the film 28 Days Later. he was again nominated in 2018 for “Best Speciality Stunt” for the film Hitmans Bodyguard and again in 2019 for “Best Fight” for the film Final Score.” He has also won numerous SAG awards as part of an ensemble stunt Team for various films & tv shows, Including, Harry Potter , Bourne Ultimatum, and Game of Thrones season IV and was also a Nominee forv Fast & and Furious 6.
In the same year he was also an Emmy Award winner as part of an ensemble stunt team for Game of Thrones season IV.
In 2005 he was inducted into the “Hollywood Stuntman’s Hall of Fame” for his contribution to the Film and Television Industry and he is a full Member of B.A.F.T.A , The European Film Academy and British Actors Equity.
One of the highlights of Peter’s Career was that he was instrumental in the concept and execution of one of the most successful AD campaigns in 2013 in which Jean Claude Van Damme performed his legendary “Splits” while standing a breast of the wing mirrors of two Volvo Trucks while they reversed down an Airport runway. Peter has worked as Volvos Main Stunt Coordinator and advisor on 5 of their Ad Campaigns.
Peter has also made the transition into Bollywood films having written and directed the Action scenes for many Hindi, Tamil and Malayan films.
When Peter is not Stunt Coordinating or Action Directing he is still performing stunts, and loving every second of it.
