Peter Parros began his acting career at Hollywood's American Theatre Arts. After performing in stage productions, commercials and television, his big break came when he won the series regular role of "RC3" Reginald Cornelius III on the hit TV show "Knight Rider." He was later cast as Officer Gus Grant, the series lead, on the new "Adam 12" series with Ethan Wayne.
