Peter appeared as Great Master 'Elboneno' in the episode entitled 'Kill the boy'. He is arrested under the orders of Daenerys along with several of his peers, the heads of Meereen's great families.

However, in the episode “Eastwatch,” the bell tolled for Dickon, son of Lord Randyll Tarly, who lost badly to Daenerys’s armies, refused to bend the knee, and then was burned alive by her dragon, Drogon.
This seems to be a recurring theme for our Rose Bruford alumni!

Yasmin Bannerman (Class of 1993) made a few appearances on Red Dwarf 'as the hottest Ground Controller for 20 light years'.
Tell me about your appearance on RED DWARF - had you seen the show previously?
Oh, yes! How could you not have seen Red Dwarf? It was just the coolest thing. Shooting it took just one day, it was the smallest thing - but all my friends were well impressed. 'You're doing Red Dwarf!? Oh man!' I was really excited about it - I was so nervous. [But] I actually didn't meet any of the cast, because I was in my booth...
Like many actors, I don't like watching myself on television, but it's so funny. I did laugh a lot. And it was really interesting to see the way it all shaped up, especially considering I hadn't been there to see what was going on. I'd just read the script - and it was just a hilarious script, the writing is absolutely fantastic.

The end of the world in You, me and the apocalypse
When a group of ordinary people learn that an eight-mile-wide comet is on a collision course with Earth, they hunker beneath the town of Slough to watch the end of the world on television.
Matthew Baynton (DIR, 2003) stars as mild-mannered Slough Bank Manager Jamie who is in a rut - albeit a very organized one - and consumed by grief for his missing wife.
"You, Me and the Apocalypse surprised me at nearly every turn -- the characters shine, the plot is a bottle rocket, the scope is epic, and the tricky balance between quirky visual gags and tragic poignancy is downright masterful."
