Peter Hawkshaw Biography Hello and welcome to my website. I've been an actor for twenty two years and I've been a human for forty two.

 

I grew up in Swansea and from school I went straight to work in warehouses and thought that was gonna be my life. Fortunately I had learned to play guitar and met a guy who had a band and was in need of a guitarist.

 

The band didn't much go anywhere however through that I met someone who was doing a performing arts course which concentrated on teaching the practical skills of performance, so as I was unemployed at the time I thought why not?

 

So after a few years of college which involved being a part of a dance company and creating a comedy double act, I came out with no idea of who to call and how to go about getting a professional career. I didn't want to go onto university as I felt I had learned enough of the craft to be getting on with.

 

One thing that can be said of Swansea and South Wales is that there's a plethora of amateur dramatic societies. So being a man who can act, dance, and sing a bit I filled up a few years going from one show to the next with hardly a break in between. This gave me the experience I needed and through doing that I've honed the skills which I'd learned from college. The last amateur show I did in Swansea was 'Allo' 'Allo' which I directed, and shortly after I moved to London where I finally auditioned for and got my first professional role. I have been professional ever since.
