John Noble, who stars as physicist Walter Bishop on "Fringe," has returned to the show after treatment for a sleep disorder, reports EW.com’s Inside TV.
While shooting the first episode of the Fox drama’s fifth season, the Australian actor realized he needed treatment, the story says.
"I couldn’t even think, mate,” Noble said. “I was working and going: ‘This is really hard.’”
Noble took 10 days for treatment in Los Angeles, and is now back in Vancouver and shooting the second episode of the next season, which will be the show’s final season. The drama will return Sept. 28, as previously scheduled.
“Walter probably would have just taken some LSD,” Noble added. “That really wasn’t an option for me.”
