Peter was born, according to various sources, or in Connemara, Galway, Ireland, or in Leeds, Yorkshire, England.

The Academy, however, he had to learn with such renowned actors in the future, as Albert Finney, Alan Bates and Brian Bedford.
The theatrical career of Peter – as many actors of the time – started with Shakespearean productions. On television, he made his debut in the 1954th and in the movies – in 1959.

In 1970, the actor was able to finally get to the scene Abbey Theatre, thus offset by an old failed – he played in the play Semuyulya Beckett ‘Waiting for Godot’ (‘Waiting for Godot’) together with the famous actor of the time Donal McCann.
The 1980th O’Toole once again gathered a lot of positive feedback – this time attracted the attention of critics in the film ‘Stunt Man’ (‘The Stunt Man’). In the same year, Peter has played in ‘Macbeth’; this role is to this day considered one of the greatest failures in the history of theater.
