August 2010
Peter Woodward is an English actor, stuntman and screenwriter. He is probably best known for his role as Galen in the Babylon 5 spin-offs Babylon 5: A Call to Arms, Crusade and Babylon 5: The Lost Tales. He is also known for his role as O'Hara in The Patriot.


 life and career
Woodward was born in London, the son of actors Venetia Mary Collett and Edward Woodward. His brother Tim and sister Sarah are also actors. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and then joined the Royal Shakespeare Company, starring in many of their productions including Winter's Tale, Comedy of Errors and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Woodward has also played a wide range of major character roles in films and television including the role of the German Captain Stossel in the feature film The Brylcreem Boys.

As a member of the British Academy of Dramatic Combat, Woodward is known in the film industry for his work as a fight arranger and also as a post-production supervisor, writing the additional dialogue recording for films including: Columbus – 1492, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Scarlet Tunic, Les Misérables and Dangerous Obsessions .

Woodward's dramatic combat training inspired him to study historical weaponry and combat techniques, an area in which he is now considered quite knowledgeable. His expertise in this field ultimately led him to create, co-write, and host The History Channel's documentary series Conquest, a hands-on showcase of weapons, training, and combat techniques throughout history. The series ran from 2002–2005 and, as of February 2007, it is occasionally still shown in reruns.

Branching out in the late 1990s, Woodward and his father formed Tripal Productions, for which he wrote and produced his first feature film The House of Angelo, directed by Jim Goddard in 1997 with his father in the starring role as "Angelo". Woodward's latest writing project, Closing the Ring, was directed by Lord Richard Attenborough.

As the Techno Mage Galen in the Babylon 5 spin-off Crusade , Woodward played opposite his father in the episode "The Long Road." In the episode, the Excalibur visits a planet that may contain a potent anti-viral agent in its minerals. Earth agencies are strip-mining the planet. Edward Woodward played Alwyn, a rogue Techno Mage living on the planet with its inhabitants who was a friend of Galen's former teacher.
