Peter Gawthorne

Peter Gawthorne

Peter Gawthorne was an Irish actor, probably best known for his roles in Will Hay films, where he often played stern, authority figures who frequently clashed with the bumbling idiots played by Hay. He was born in 1884 in Queen's County in Ireland, but spent most of his career in Great Britain where he worked exstensively in cinema often playing military officers. []
