Peter Williams (born December 31, 1957) is a Jamaican-born actor currently residing in Canada.[1] The majority of his work has been in television, including the role of the primary villain Apophis in the first four seasons of Stargate SG-1.


Even if William is mainly a television actor, he also appeared on the big screen in films such as Catwoman and The Chronicles of Riddick. His brother Stephen is also in the entertainment business, and has directed several episodes of television shows including Dark Angel, Crossing Jordan and Lost.

In 1995, two years prior to Stargate SG-1's premiere, Williams starred in the 1995 movie Jungleground with three other actors from the Stargate franchise: Torri Higginson (Elizabeth Weir), J. R. Bourne (Martouf), and Lexa Doig (Dr. Carolyn Lam).

Most recently, he played the lead Gene Wright in Frances-Anne Solomon's 2007 feature film A Winter Tale.
