Biography

He may be regarded as one of England's most prolific character actors, with a career spanning several decades and dozens of film, television and stage roles, but for Trevor Peacock, acting came only after he had made a name for himself as a prominent pop songwriter. In addition to writing hits for the biggest pop acts of the 1960s, including Herman's Hermits, Jess Conrad and The Vernon Girls, Peacock also wrote the lyrics to the musicals "Passion Flower Hotel" and "Andy Capp," the latter of which was based on the popular comic strip. Although a songwriter first, Peacock's acting career took off in the early 1970s, and, over the next several decades, he landed recurring roles on popular British television shows such as "Neverwhere" (BBC Two, 1996) and "The Vicar of Dibley" (BBC One, 1994-2000; 2004-07), thus becoming one of Britain's most visible character actors of the small screen.
