And I have to say, the first day of filming was unexpectedly emotional for me. As I put on the long black coat and drove to the set in the pre-dawn gloom, I could feel the presence of an old friend I have not seen for some years now. Really, in a very physical way, I could 'feel' him. And I was overwhelmed, possessed even, by the sense of him, tears welling up in my eyes as I formed the words in my head, over and over again, "Methos is alive."
Wingfield has appeared in numerous North American television productions for both Canadian and U.S. companies, including the portrayal of Dr Robert Helm in Queen of Swords filmed in Spain at Texas Hollywood, Almeria, and the surrounding Tabernas Desert. Executive Producer, David Abramowitz, met Peter Wingfield at a Highlander convention in November 1999 and offered him the parts of Doctor Helm or Captain Grisham. Wingfield chose the Doctor as a part with more mileage and more challenging.
Starting in 2011, Wingfield significantly reduced his acting career responsibilities. Returning full circle to his earlier interest in a career in Medicine, he entered College of Medicine at the University of Vermont as part of the Class of 2015. He received his white coat as part of the U.V.M. College of Medicine White Coat Ceremony in 2012. In 2015, it was announced that he would be joining the residency program at the University of California, San Diego.
