Born as Peter Godenho to an Italian American father and Scottish/Burmese mother, Gordeno was known primarily for his work with composer and arranger John Barry, but also became a household name in the 1970s due to his appearances as a submarine captain and combat pilot Peter Carlin in the Gerry Anderson television programme UFO. He appeared in the 1968 London stage production of Man of La Mancha, as Anselmo, a muleteer. In the show, he was the soloist in the song "Little Bird, Little Bird". He also appeared in the films Secrets of a Windmill Girl (1966), The Touchables (1968), The Urge to Kill (1989), and briefly in the very last Carry On film (Carry On Columbus) in 1992, whilst also working on the choreography for the film.
He died on 18 October 2008, aged 69, after suffering from cancer for several years.
