I’m Peter Ganim and I’m an actor.
I started in the theatre as a kid, studied a bit at FSU, then hit the ground running with a national tour of Molière, ultimately settling in Atlanta for a decade and appearing on every noted stage in that city, playing classical, contemporary, and world premiere roles.
The press called me ‘…a virtuoso…’1 and ‘…a powerhouse…’2, and when I left to move to New York City, ‘…part of an artistic ‘brain-drain’…’3 which included an artistic director now flourishing on the west coast and a ground-breaking director who just recently won the Tony Award. I was in great company.
I got to Manhattan and built some momentum early on, co-starring on multiple episodes of ‘Law & Order’, and the soaps (when they were in town), as well as in the final production of the National Actors Theatre, Luigi Pirandello’s ‘Right You Are!’, onstage with the great Tony Randall. Life was good. Directors and casting directors called me ‘…a rock star…’4 and ‘…the most persistent actor in New York.’5
The next several years I spent doing independent films and staged readings and everything else actors do to thrive in this business: commercials, voiceovers, and more and more projects for new media and the cybersphere.
Lately, the iron’s been heating up, with a recent and award-winning performance in Anthony Haden Salerno’s film ‘Lapse’, stage appearances in ‘The Myth Project’ with Noor Theatre at New York Theatre Workshop and as ‘Jason’ in Medea this past spring, a television pilot, two films, more theatre coming up in 2016 (developing a ground-breaking adaptation of Ibsen), and these days, directors have been calling me ‘…insightful, intelligent, instinctive…’6 and ‘…one hot f*ckin’ actor.’7
