Eric Peterson

Eric Peterson (Collaborator, Billy Bishop Goes to War) was born in Indian Head, Saskatchewan in 1946, and is well known to Canadian audiences for his film and television appearances, most notably the hit CBC series Street Legal and CTV's Corner Gas. He has performed in Theatre Passe Muraille's 1837: The Farmers' Revolt, Tom Cone's Herringbone at Festival Lennoxville, and the commercial production of George F. Walker's Nothing Sacred, although, he will probably always be associated with his performance in the premiere and the international tour (including a Broadway run) of Billy Bishop Goes to War. He helped to revive the play for Canadian Stage in 1998 and returned to the company in October 2000, to perform in Hysteria. More recently, he appeared in David Young's Clout at the National Arts Centre.
