FRINGE: John Noble Teases Peter’s Return

August 6, 2011 by  

Have you been craving some FRINGE goodness? (We can’t blame you if you are.)

Thankfully, series star John Noble (Walter) was kind enough to sit down with Give Me My Remote for an extensive interview at Friday night’s TCA party to help indulge our need for scoop. And while we can’t post the entire chat today, we couldn’t resist giving you guys this little tease to tide you over in the meantime…

When I brought up there might be a slight change in the FRINGE dynamic since Peter no longer exists, Noble was quick to make a slight clarification to my comment.

“I don’t think the truth of it is that Peter doesn’t exist,” Noble said. “I think it’s that he didn’t survive [the illness that killed Walter’s biological son]. There’s a big difference.”

But for the big question: has he shared any scenes with Joshua Jackson (Peter) so far this season? (They’re currently filming the second episode of the year.)

“No, not specifically with Josh,” Noble said. “[Peter’s] presence has been felt, but we’re building up over the first block of [episodes] — we sort of do things in blocks — the first four really build up to his proper arrival. He’s been seen before that, but it’s quite interesting the way [the writers] shape things. They put things in packages like that, quite often.”

And if you think you’re the only one counting down the days until Jackson returns to FRINGE, think again.

“I can’t wait for him to get back,” Noble said with a smile. “We have a lot of fun together. But it’s not long to wait now.”

Are you counting down the days until Peter returns on FRINGE?

    Oh John. Thank you for putting my heart at ease, I know I can always count on you to give me a little tease of what’s coming.

    Thanks so much for this. John, you always make it better for Fringe fans. You can drop little hints like this, anytime.

    I am not believing a word john noble says. The writers only care about Lincoln.

    I absolutely LOVE this show but the main reason is Joshua Jackson along with his interaction with John Noble’s Walter. I’m don’t think I would continue watching if Peter doesn’t somehow return.

    Wait… Some of you thought he was gone for good? Seriously?

    … I couldn’t imagine Fringe without Peter…he is a main character for me, and I cant see how the plot would make any sense otherwise, as all hell broke loose since the kidnapping…so … Love Joshua’s work so far…keep it up…. Best regards from Portugal!

    Not worried about Joshua Jackson being gone from the show, but worried about Walter and Peter’s unique father-son relationship getting lost to new themes. Fringe writers have shown they aren’t afraid of MAJOR change, so to lose the bond they’ve built over three seasons would be tragic.

    I loveeee FRINGE Omg..I want my show back ASAP!! Without Peter Fringe would still be awesome cuz Olive and Walter are the heart of the show and I love JJ too and he will be back, some of you are slow.

    I absolutely loved what happened to Peter at the end of the season. Not because I didn’t like the character – his story is wonderfully poignant – but because I love the possibilities of a Walter who lost his son and didn’t then cross universes to save him. I never thought the writers wouldn’t bring Peter back in some form, and when he was at Comic-Con I was sure (of course, that could have just been a nasty tease). I’ve learned to have faith that they know what they’re doing, up until the final 10 minutes ever that is, when I’m sure they’ll piss me off the way most shows do. But, anyway, John Noble has always been so truly believeable in this role. I’m going to love seeing what kind of meaty material they give him to play the now freshly unstable Walter. Good things are coming.
