Actor, and History Buff who likes to see the funny side.

19/01/2017 11AM | GUEST | Sloan Sheridan-Williams


Cory Peterson grew up in Minnesota and after graduating with a BA in Economics & Political Science he worked in NYC in Law to support his acting work. Cory was the case manager for President-Elect Donald Trump's prenuptial and divorce and got to know him a little. He trained at the School for Film and Television in New York and studied his PG in Acting at the Webber Douglas Academy in London and says he always wanted to work as an actor in London and regularly attended productions at the National Theatre and Royal Court since he was an 18 year old touring Europe on his own. Cory moved to the UK 5 years ago and finally has been able to pursue his dream.

His theatre credits include "Clybourne Park" (Wyndhams Theatre), Father Flynn in John Patrick Shanley’s "Doubt" and Count Carl Magnus in Sondheim’s "A Little Night Music" (Yvonne Arnaud Theatre), as well as multiple roles in "Whistleblower" (Waterloo East Theatre).


Personal highlights for Cory this year included the opportunity to play a scene in the Netflix series "The Crown" opposite Alex Jennings who is Cory's favourite English actor & going to Budapest to reprise his role as CIA Ryan Hutton in the sequel to the internationally acclaimed film "The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window & Disappeared". He also appears in the new J.K. Rowling film "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them" starring Eddie Redmayne.


He is currently playing the role of Derek in Park Theatre’s new dark comedy "Saving Jason" directed by Steven Dexter and written by Peter Quilter the two-time Olivier Award nominated writer of the West End/Broadway hits "Glorious!" and "End of the Rainbow".


Saving Jason is set in a 1996 suburban household, where Trevor and Linda continue to struggle with their rebellious teenage son, Jason. In a moment of madness, they hatch a plan to change his lifestyle of midnight raves, suspicious friends and Ecstasy tablets. By staging a fake funeral for Jason in the family living room, Trevor and Linda hope their bleak vision of their son’s future will change his hedonistic ways. As the wider family joins in the charade, the evening descends into a whirlwind of drink, pills and muffins in a bid to save Jason’s soul.


Cory says, " I am pleased to be doing this new play as I haven't had much opportunity for comedy which I believe is one of my strengths. It's fun to play a complete idiot after a series of CIA and darker types of characters."


Saving Jason is on now until 3 December at Park90. For further information and to book tickets, please visit www.parktheatre.co.uk
