Enter Your Contribution Here Peter Bowles, born October 16, 1936 in London, is an actor known for playing the stereotypical upper-crust Brit in 1970s and 1980s sitcoms. He’s perhaps best-known to American audiences for his roles in the PBS broadcasts of two BBC productions. In To the Manor Born, Bowles is the nouveau riche owner of an estate opposite Penelope Keith’s estate widow forced to live in the coach house. In Rumpole of the Bailey he plays Guthrie Featherstone, the constantly posturing head of chambers shared with the crusty Horace Rumpole, played by the late Leo McKern. Bowles reappeared in later seasons in a reoccurring role as Justice Featherstone, who as a judge is especially onerous to Rumpole. Earlier in his career he played in an episode of The Prisoner and in four episodes of The Avengers, both cult classics from the 1960s. Bowles and Penelope Keith later teamed up in ITV’s BAFTA-awarded Executive Stress. He appeared in a 2005 episode of Jericho, a WGBH-Boston and Granada Television co-production. He plays The Chairman in the not yet released 2006 film Freebird, promoted as “a rock and roll road movie comedy set in Wales.” Peter Bowles has an impressive filmography that also includes producer and writer credits. He now mainly works in theatre, often appearing in London’s West End.
