In a career that spanned seven decades, Peter Wyngarde™ played over 150 different characters, although it would be one particular persona that he’d ultimately be best remembered: Jason King – the writer-come-detective in the ITC series, ‘Department S’.
Prior to be cast as King, Peter had enjoyed a hugely successful stage and screen career, appearing alongside such greats as Vivien Leigh, Dame Edith Evans, Claire Bloom, Dame Peggy Ashcroft, Joan Plowright, Richard Burton, and also directed at the world-renowned Old Vic in Bristol. He’d also make memorable appearances in some of televisions “cult” classics; ‘The Avengers’, ‘The Baron’, The Champions, ‘The Prisoner’ and ‘The Saint’.
In the mid-to-late Seventies, he played to sell-out audiences at Vienna’s English Theatre, and was cast as General Klytus in the sci-fid blockbuster, ‘Flash Gordon’. Latterly, he had returned to TV in ‘Doctor Who’, ‘The Hammer House of Mystery and Suspense’ and ‘The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes’.
Peter passed away on January 15th, 2018.
