Peter Burton

Peter Burton (4 April 1921 - 21 November 1989) was an English film and television actor born in Bromley, Kent. His biggest claim to fame is being the first actor to portray Major Boothroyd, better known as Q, in the first James Bond film, Dr. No (1962). Due to a scheduling conflict, Burton was not available to reprise the role for From Russia with Love (1963) and therefore was replaced by long time Q actor Desmond Llewelyn. Burton guest starred in a number of television shows including The Avengers, The Saint, Return of the Saint, and UFO.
