Actor.

His biggest claim to fame is being the first actor to portray Major Boothroyd, better known as Q, in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962). Due to a scheduling conflict, Burton was not available to reprise the role for From Russia with Love (1963) and therefore was replaced by long time Q actor Desmond Llewelyn.

Aside from Dr. No, he appeared in films like: Reach for the Sky (1956), Sink the Bismarck! (1960), Lawrence of Arabia (1962), A Clockwork Orange (1971), The Bitch (1979), and Inchon (1981).

Peter Burton passed away in 1989.
