From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Peter Bayliss (27 June 1922 – 29 July 2002) was an actor.

Bayliss was born in Kingston-upon-Thames and trained at the Italia Conti Academy and the John Gielgud Company. More than six feet tall, with a voice to match, he supplemented it with a barrage of wheezings, croakings, mutterings and, as the opera singer in Frontiers Of Farce (Old Vic, 1977), garglings.

His 20 films ranged from The Red Shoes (1948) to Darling (1965). He acted in more than 40 television productions including The Sweeney, Coronation Street, Lovejoy and The Bill, plus dramas like Bye, Bye Columbus (1990), Alice In Wonderland (1998) and The Arabian Nights (1999). On radio he was particularly good in Jacobean adaptations, playing characters with names such as Sir Moth-Interest and Walter Whorehound.

He appeared in more than 100 theatre productions.
