Peter Sellers, CBE, nome d'arte di Richard Henry Sellers , è stato un attore, sceneggiatore, regista e cantante britannico.

È ricordato per le spiccate doti di attore comico, e per l'abilità nei travestimenti e nelle imitazioni, ma fu interprete di notevole spessore anche in ruoli drammatici. La sua vita, difficile e travagliata nonostante il grande successo, è narrata nel film Tu chiamami Peter , nel quale Sellers è interpretato da Geoffrey Rush.

La sua fama è legata soprattutto al ruolo dell'imbranata comparsa indiana Hrundi V. Bakshi in Hollywood Party e all'interpretazione del goffo Ispettore Clouseau nella serie de La Pantera Rosa, oltre al Dottor Stranamore dell'omonima pellicola di Stanley Kubrick, nel quale recitò in tre ruoli diversi, e a vari altri ruoli da protagonista nelle commedie tipiche degli anni sessanta, come Ciao Pussycat e James Bond 007 - Casino Royale.

Frasi Peter Sellers

„Criticism should be done by critics, and a critic should have some training and some love of the medium he is discussing. But these days, gossip-columnist training seems to be enough qualification.“

— Peter Sellers
Context: Criticism should be done by critics, and a critic should have some training and some love of the medium he is discussing. But these days, gossip-columnist training seems to be enough qualification. I suppose an ability to stand on your feet through interminable cocktail parties and swig interminable gins in between devouring masses of fried prawns may just possibly help you to understand and appreciate what a director is getting at, but for the life of me I can't see how. Statement (September 1961), as quoted in Mr. Strangelove: A Biography of Peter Sellers (1999) by Ed Sikov, p. 168

„There is no me. I do not exist … There used to be a me, but I had it surgically removed.“

As quoted in Halliwell's Filmgoer's Companion (1988) by Leslie Halliwell, p. 622
