Peter Williams

Film and television are the game, Peter Williams is the name... but it wasn't always that way. Community theater (Whose Life is it Anyway?, Women of Manhattan, Big Yard 1 & 2), low pay/high satisfaction roles and some crucial casting (McGyver, Wiseguy, 21 Jumpstreet) gave Peter his firm launch as an actor with a distinct flavor.

Being based in Vancouver's redhot industry allowed Peter five seasons as "Pin" in the syndicated series Neon Rider, and as the recurring character "Apophis" in the international hit, Stargate SG-1. Plus four seasons (so far) of the critically acclaimed DaVinci's Inquest and numerous guest star roles in such shows as The X-files, The Outer Limits, Due South and television films, VH-1's recent Sweetwater about the first band to play at Woodstock!

The feature film arena has seen Peter nominated for the Best Actor in a Leading Role Genia Award, for Soul Survivor, a project developed with his brother. Screened at the Cannes, Sundance, and Toronto Film Festivals, Peter reaped positive press for his performance. Clement Virgo's Love Come Down saw Peter back on the festival circuit in a supporting lead in 2000, and he recently worked with Ving Rhames in Robert Townsend's Holiday Heart. Currently, he is filming Liberty Stand Still.

Peter lives with his wife and children in Canada.
