“My dad once showed me ‘The Guns of Navarone’ when I was a kid.
I haven’t rewatched it since, but it gave me such a warm feeling.” Growing up, there were some familial dynamics that prevented too much closeness between Peck and his grandfather. I knew him at the end of his life, and he was Grandpa — and also an icon.
Peck starred opposite Adam Rothenberg and Mariah Carey in the 2008 film Tennessee, followed by a co-starring role opposite Peter Coyote and Bebe Neuwirth in the film Adopt a Sailor.
He won the award "Best Actor" at the 2009 Sonoma International Film Festival for his portrayal of "Sailor".
Peck is the grandson of Academy Award winning actor Gregory Peck, and his first wife, Finnish-born Greta Kukkonen.
