Toronto-based Producer, Co-Director and star of Beyond What Remains, and member of the extended family cast in the box office hit My Big Fat Greek Wedding (2002) and its sequel (2016), Peter studied and honed his craft over many years with the highly regarded, Juilliard-trained Artistic Director of the Professional Actors Lab, David Rotenberg.
With a Bachelor of Arts (Politics) and a Law Degree from Queen’s University, he began his career as a litigation lawyer in Toronto. But a few years later, in an effort to convince a friend to follow his dream to become an actor, Peter accepted a challenge to attend an acting class with him xenical cost. His friend didn’t show up. Instead, Peter discovered his own love for the art and left his lawyer days behind.
To throw himself into the role of Fernando, Peter not only re-located to Mexico City for most of a year to prepare for the part, prep and shoot the film, he took Spanish classes in Toronto and throughout his stay in Mexico to achieve an authentic accent. Beyond What Remains is his first feature film as a producer, his first as a co-director, and his first as the lead.
