John Noble talks going full villain on 'Sleepy Hollow'

On tonight’s episode of Sleepy Hollow, Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Abbie (Nicole Beharie) will tangle with a demonic take on the Pied Piper. Presumably, our heroes will best the beast before the hour is over. But even if they do, they’ll still have to tangle with season two’s true Big Bad: Henry Parrish, a.k.a. the Second Horseman of the Apocalypse, a.k.a. Ichabod and Katrina’s long-lost son. As played by John Noble, he’s a deliciously wicked foil for the two Witnesses—especially when he’s slinking around Sleepy Hollow pretending to be an innocent lawyer.

EW caught up with Noble on Sleepy Hollow‘s North Carolina set, where he told us all about how he and Mison tangle when the cameras are off—and the particular dangers of shooting this spooky show. (Think terrible heat and poisonous spiders.)

EW: How’s your day going so far?
John Noble: We’re having a fabulous day out here in Fredericks Manor. We love this location. It’s an old rice plantation that actually stopped functioning as a rice plantation after the Civil War. The house itself is so old, too. So it’s really exciting to come out here for a change. Apart from the mosquitos and the ticks. [Laughs] READ FULL STORY

A series finale is like a laboratory-conceived psychotic porcupine monster: It has a very long tail, and it will make you cry. Nearly five months after Fringe said goodbye by sending Walter Bishop (John Noble) into the far future to save Peter (Joshua Jackson), Olivia (Anna Torv) and the rest of humanity (thanks!) by changing history, the cult classic squirrels back into our field of vision one more time to drop its last DVD and take a bow.

'Fringe': Science Channel to re-air all five seasons

Good news for all Observers! Starting next week, Science Channel will air three full hours of Fringe every Tuesday night. These nights of reruns will begin with a special message from John Noble, who plays brilliant mad scientist Walter Bishop; by 2013, the network will have re-aired the sci-fi series in its entirety.

The great Fringe rewatch begins Nov. 20 at 8 p.m., when the series’ two-hour pilot and first regular episode will play. Science will then air Fringe‘s full first season during daylong marathons on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24. Season 2 starts airing the following week.

'Fringe' star John Noble back to work after treatment for sleep disorder

John Noble has confronted and conquered an array of daunting acting challenges playing Fringe’s brain scrambled boundary-pushing physicist Walter Bishop. But when the star found himself literally brain scrambled as a result of an ongoing sleep disorder while shooting the first episode of the Fox drama’s fifth and final season, Noble had to ask for a time out.

“I couldn’t even think, mate,” the Australian actor tells EW. “I was working and going: ‘This is really hard.’” Which is saying a lot for a heady sci-fi series that routinely challenges its cast and audience with such noodle-cooking concepts as time travel, parallel worlds, and alternate timelines. With the blessing of producers and backers, Noble took 10 days off to seek treatment in Los Angeles. He’s now back at work in Vancouver, shooting the second episode of the season, which will launch as scheduled on September 28. “People were so bloody supportive, it was really touching,” says Noble. “I’m feeling more well rested now and sleeping better than I have in 20 years.”  READ FULL STORY
