Peter Hinwood was born May 17, 1946, and worked as both a photographer and a professional model while he was pursuing his acting career. Hinwood is most noted for his film appearance as the well-oiled and mostly mute title character in the cult classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. While the body was his, the part of Rocky's singing voice was played by Trevor White.
His portrayal of Dr. Frank-n-furter's "creation" was the most significant role of Hinwood's limited acting career. Hinwood had previously played the Greek god Hermes in the Adventures of Ulysses mini-series on British television in the late sixties. He performed in one other horror film before Rocky Horror, as "Guy" in Roddy McDowall's macabre Tam Lin. After Rocky Horror, he capped his cinematic career with a bit role in Paul Humfress and Derek Jarman's homoerotic Roman historical drama, Sebastiane.
He reportedly went on to become an antiques dealer outside of London.
