Peter Serafinowicz Biography

  • Profession: Actor, Show Creator
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

Offbeat, highly individualistic British character player Peter Serafinowicz broke into film courtesy of radio, with a head-turning contribution to a tongue-in-cheek documentary about the music industry on England's Radio 1, entitled The Knowledge. That led, in turn, to a wealth of voice assignments on various Radio 4 series, including Grievous Bodily Radio, Harry Hill's Fruit Corner, and Weekending. Serafinowicz segued into features with a plum role in 1997's Murder Most Horrid before making a splash as Brian May on the spoof-heavy BBC sketch comedy program Comedy Nation in the late '90s, alongside [[Performer~P330033~Sacha Baron Cohen~sachabaroncohen]] and others; unfortunately, it was somewhat short-lived, though successive projects afforded Serafinowicz greater exposure. He found his bread and butter on British television, in series including [[Feature~V270238~Spaced~spaced[tvseries]]] and [[Feature~V274194~World of Pub~worldofpub[tvseries]]], but broke into features with roles in the outrageous horror comedy spoof [[Feature~V301090~Shaun of the Dead~shaunofthedead]] (2004) and the gentle period coming-of-age drama [[Feature~V337849~Sixty Six~sixtysix]] (2006). ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
