Interview! sat in on a conference call with John Noble who’s played Dr. Walter Bishop since 2008. When asked what’s been Noble’s favorite Walter moment he shared, “Which is my favorite, Walter really, because I’ve played a bunch of different versions of him. Gee, I don’t know. I loved it when he was being random, which was probably the original version of him more than anyone else. I loved doing Walter then and all of the different mental states that we’ve played in during the time, but when he was being completely random and had very poor social skills. I loved the scenes that he played with Peter, the connecting stuff that I played with Josh Jackson over the five years. Both of us really loved doing that work. There were so many different aspects of Walter, the comedy and drama and emotion and so forth. He was a fully-fledged character. So it’s hard for me to say what my favorite one was, but probably – ‘Fringe’ is essentially a love story and so the scenes where he had close connection with Peter, but also with Anna’s character or Jasika’s character were very special to me.” The FOX series will air its two-hour series finale on Friday January 18 at 8:00 PM.
