Born in London, England, Peter Bowles began his career at the beginning of the live television era. From early appearances at the Bristol Old Vic,
Peter worked as an actor in the late 1970s and 1980s, starring in television
comedies such as Rising Damp, Only When I Laugh, Rumpole of the
Bailey, The Bounder, and Perfect
Scoundrels. He has starred in The Prisoner, Space: 1999, Survivor and The Avengers—but it wasn’t until the mid-1980s, when he
costarred with Penelope Keith in To the Manor Born,
that he became a household name.
Funny, candid, and warming in equal measure, Ask Me if I’m Happy is the very personal story of
this inspiring and quintessentially British actor.
