Career[edit]

Peter Gadiot made his American network debut as Cyrus, the handsome and mysterious Genie, in ABC's Once Upon a Time in Wonderland. Last year Gadiot starred opposite Léa Seydoux in a short series of films directed by Wes Anderson and Roman Coppola, Prada: Candy. This coming year he will portray a major new character in the British series Fresh Meat, a Channel 4 dramedy with a large cult following that's now entering its third season.

Gadiot's past credits include the 2013 film The Forbidden Girl, MTV's Hot Mess and the British series My Spy Family.

Gadiot trained classically at Drama Centre London and has appeared in numerous stage productions. A versatile talent, he recently went behind the camera to write and direct the short film 12-17, which is now in post production.

Philanthropy[edit]

Gadiot also actively campaigns against slavery and human trafficking, and once rowed across the Atlantic to support the cause. He rowed across the Atlantic Ocean from the Caribbean to Africa with a crew in about 39 days. Afterwards, he ran a "self-sufficient 250-kilometer ultra-marathon in the Sahara Desert." He finally completed his journey by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Gadiot gave talks to thousands of school children educating them about the issues. With Rowing Against Slavery, Gadiot was able to raise money for Anti-Slavery International and Save the Children. [2]
