Peter Wingfield was on the verge of completing his medical training when he realized he didn't want to be a doctor and dropped out to pursue and acting career. As a child in Cardiff, Wales, he studied drama at the National Youth Theatre, and resumed his dramatic training years later at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. Landing his first acting role because he knew how to drive, Peter debuted in Beeban Kidron's Antonia and Jane.

He has gone on to become a British Television staple, having starred in countless productions over the past ten years, including the series Medics, Soldier Soldier, Antonia Bird's The Men's Room, Lifeboat, Nice Day at the Office, and Noah's Ark. He has the mini-series Into the Fire, Martin Chuzzlewit, and Crocodile Shoes under his belt as well as the telefilms, Six Characters in Search of an Author, Trust Me, Alun Levis:Death and Beauty — in the title role, Degas and Pissaro Fall Out, Murder in Mind, and Over Here.

American Audiences know and love Peter as Methos, the oldest living Immortal on the cult hit Highlander: The Series. Peter will reprise the role of Methos in the upcoming feature Highlander: Engame.

Peter excels at athletics and a once national trampoline champion and representative of Wales in the national club finals in Pole-vaulting, now finds running, particularly long distance marathons, his sport of choice. He also plays two instruments, the saxophone and the flute.
