This attractive, stage-trained light-haired actor broke through with his understated performance as a recently released criminal forced to collaborate with Brendan Gleeson's irascible Bunny at the behest of a crime lord in the underrated and unjustly overlooked Irish film "I Went Down" (1998). Dublin native Peter McDonald began his career in earnest in fringe theater while studying at University College. He made his film acting debut in the little-seen "Have You Ever Heard of Jimi Hendrix," as an alcoholic busker obsessed with the American rock star but it was "I Went Down" (which was a box-office hit in Ireland) that made audiences and others take notice. McDonald subsequently played an Australian who agrees to accompany a sea captain (Bob Hoskins) to the Arctic in "Captain Jack" (also 1998) and reteamed with the actor for Atom Egoyan's "Felicia's Journey" (1999). McDonald also reunited with co-star Gleeson and scriptwriter Conor McPherson for the latter's directorial debut "Salt Water" (2000), an adaptation of the play "This Lime Tree Bower."
