Peter North (born Alden Brown on 11 May 1957) is a Canadian pornographic actor, director, and producer.
North is originally from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and attended J. L. Ilsley High School. He relocated to California in 1982, where he resides in Newport Coast.
North states that he "entered the adult business in the spring of 1984 by accident. I was approached to do it but never really contemplated it or even thought I would be in the adult business". Initially, North performed in gay pornography under the name Matt Ramsey. He later transitioned to straight porn and became an in-demand performer.
In a 1996 interview published in North's hometown newspaper, the Halifax Chronicle-Herald, he stated that he was "discovered" at the age of 24 while modelling athletic-wear at a private party in Los Angeles in the early '80s. A man within the adult industry, whom North did not name, attended the party, was impressed by North's physique and gave him his business card.
In 2001, he successfully launched his own production company, Northstar Associates. North has appeared in over 2,000 adult films and also directed more than 70 movies (notably, his North Pole and Anal Addicts series), most of them between 1998 and 2007. He also produced over 20 movies, including 15 in the North Pole series.
Peter North appeared in the music video for the song "Been To Hell" by the rap rock band Hollywood Undead, along with porn actress Britney Beth (also known as BiBi Jones).
North dated fellow porn actress Jewel De'Nyle for over two years.
