Peter Howitt Actor, writer, director, producer

Peter Howitt is a British born Film and TV actor, writer, producer and director. He started his career in TV in the hit UK sitcom Bread. He was twice directed by Harold Pinter; in The 1991 London production of The Caretaker alongside Colin Firth and Donald Pleasence and in Party Time at the Almeida Theatre. The first film he wrote and directed was SLIDING DOORS. Since then he has directed ANTITRUST, JOHNNY ENGLISH, LAWS OF ATTRACTION and DANGEROUS PARKING which he also wrote and produced and played the leading role. He loves to cook and can make a meal out of anything including an old banjo. He started off in a band in 1975 and like like most actor-writer-directors he wishes he was a rock star. But he is not - just like the rest of them who wish they were. He does a top John Lennon impression though. He lives in Canada with his wife and daughter.
