About Me

I’m an Irish actress living in London. You could say I was born inquisitive! From as early as anyone can remember I wanted to engage in people’s lives and hear their stories, and then recount them in vivid and passionate detail.

I always think that acting chose me. I was always kinda morphing into other people’s mindsets when I was growing up, and being born and brought up in a small town like Dingle, in Co. Kerry in the south west of Ireland, afforded me a wealth of material and tradition from which to draw.

I began a modelling career in Paris, but soon after changed tack and went to Paris-Sorbonne University to study French Literature and Civilisation. I then studied Shakespearean and Renaissance Literature at the University of Limerick and completed a post-graduate degree at Drama Studio London.

People in the industry told me I needed a stage name, and taking my paternal grandfather’s first name, Peter, seemed like the right choice as he had been such a positive influence on my life after I lost my father when I was a girl.

You might have seen me starring alongside Jean-Claude Van Damme in Ernie Barbarash’s 2015 film Pound of Flesh, playing the part of Ana. In 2013 I was in The 39 Steps, a National Theatre touring production in which we played over 130 shows in 24 venues over a six-month period. It got some great reviews.

My recent and ongoing projects include Interlude In Prague, in which I played the role of Mozart’s wife, Constanze, and which was released this year, and two short films; The Widow’s Last and Siobhan.

Interlude in Prague (2017)

Directed by: John Stephenson

The story follows Mozart as he composes his operatic masterpiece Don Giovanni. While visiting Prague, the composer becomes embroiled in a turbulent narrative of lust and murder.

The Widow's Last

Set in Ireland, during the third year of The Great Hunger, The Widow’s Last stars Charlotte as Kathryn Healy, a hardened widow who fights to keep her young son alive during one of the darkest times in human history.

Starving from lack of food and with her son stricken by fever she stumbles across an English landlord, wounded and himself on the edge of death. This encounter with the enemy sets her on an unexpected path where she is forced to confront her own inhumanity and make choices…

With her debut short, director Vanessa Perdriau has produced a powerful, moving film that examines the nature of our humanity, anchored by outstanding performances. At its core, this is a profound story of forgiveness, sacrifice and redemption, poised to keep you on the edge of your seat.
