'SEEKING HOLLYWOOD'S MOST ELUSIVE BEAST'
Gorilla Men Bios
Peter Elliot has established himself as a modern gorilla
suit master with his efforts in costume and choreography in films like
GREYSTOKE: THE LEGEND OF TARZAN, GORILLAS IN THE MIST and BUDDY. With a
background in theatre, Elliot claims to have had an early fascination with
mimicking animal life. His first foray into gorilla suit work quickly ramped
up into a major project. Initially cast as one of Tarzan's extended simian
family in GREYSTOKE, Peter's talents lead to his lead role in assembling and
training other ape actors after a long period of research into primate
behaviour at the University of Oklahoma.
