Peter Gadiot

Birth Name: Alan Peter Gadiot

Place of Birth: Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, U.K.

Date of Birth: 2 January, 1985

*Dutch (father)
*Mexican (mother)

Peter Gadiot is a British film and television actor.

Peter was born in Haywards Heath, Sussex, England, to a Dutch father and a Mexican mother. Peter speaks fluent English and Spanish.

Peter has said:

My father is Dutch so he looks very Northern European and I grew up in a small town in Sussex, which is white middle class, so I certainly felt very far away. The only similarity that we have in England is Spanish people so some people would think, ‘Oh he has a Spanish mother’. It’s kind of strange to say that, but they really had no concept of what Mexico was where I was growing up.
