PETER WYNGARDE BIOGRAPHY - REVIEWS
A biography of Peter Wyngarde is long overdue. The actor was one of the faces of the '60s,
an actor with a magnetic screen presence which the camera caught brilliantly. Wyngarde
always brought an edge to a character portrayal, a sense of dynamism, smouldering
sexuality and an intense presence. Effortlessly he dominated the screen. Wyngarde was
already a familiar face when the character he portrayed, 'Jason King', catapulted him to
world recognition. Simply the man dazzled, and exuded star quality. How fortunate
therefore that Roger Langley's meticulously researched, well constructed, and skilfully
written work does Wyngarde great credit.
This thorough work comprehensively covers every decade
of his life. We learn a lot about the man as well as the public persona. He comes across
as a true individual, a man treading a unique path. Obviously crafted over a period of
time, the research is evident on every page. This is a brilliant biography of a
distinguished actor, written with both warmth and insight. Mr Wyngarde should be well
gratified. This book does him proud.
Thank you for the biography. I am a huge Wyngarde fan and I was very impressed with the
amount of information and research you have put into the book. Very well done, I'm sure
Peter would be very impressed and proud of the work you have done.
am a massive fan of the actor Peter Wyngarde and I really enjoyed reading the biography
you wrote about him. I think he is a much underrated actor and I am very glad you took the
great effort of committing the story of his extraordinary life to paper. The book is a
most wonderful treat for his fans. Online purchaser
