Diary of a Wimpy Kid Wiki

Peter New (born October 30, 1971) is a Canadian actor who played Quentin as an adult in Diary of a Wimpy Kid (film).

Born and raised in Vancouver (for a year in New Zealand), Peter began acting in grade nine. He joined the Vancouver Youth Theatre at 16, and began a comedy troupe called The Legend of Bonefish at nineteen.

After toiling for a decade in clubs and cabarets, Peter finally made the move to film and television where he began to find roles immediately, and to voice acting where his breakout was longer in the making, but perhaps even more well-received when it came. Peter is committed to making his own work happen, by writing and performing in independent films, including co-producing some of those old cabaret sketches and popping them online twenty years after the fact. Peter's acting has taken him far and wide, from Ohio to Australia, New York and Uganda. He looks forward to discovering all of the places this craft may take him, both inside himself, and out there in the larger world.
