Welcome to the next in our series of chats Philip. When we originally scheduled this catch-up Philip expected that he would have just finished doing dialogue recording for Rogue and have seen a cut of the movie. Unfortunately, ADR ran into some scheduling conflicts for those involved, as so often happens, which put him right…
Last week we learned a bit about Philip’s childhood growing up between Montana and London. This week Philip is giving us a peek into how he and Megan finally were able to be together on the same continent in the same time zone!
Philip is starting his post-drama school career in London and Megan has graduated high school in Montana, USA. When in doubt, assume that we’re both laughing even harder than in Part I.
Like all of us, actors are more than their jobs.
When this interview was originally planned, it was intended to be the final in a series taking a look at how the twentieth season of Law and Order: Special Victims Unit had gone for Peter Stone and Philip Winchester. That all abruptly changed with Winchester’s unexpected release from the show in March followed by his subsequent public announcement in April. True to his word as always, Philip didn’t hesitate to follow through with the interview. A few days after returning home to Montana and before the season finale we connected for a chat about what happened, the future of “Peter Stone” and more importantly how he was enjoying some much-needed respite with family and friends and what the future holds.
As promised, Philip Winchester recently checked in for a mid-season update on playing Peter Stone, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, exciting “real life” changes and even a little bit of “Strike Back-ey” talk.
Part 2 of our For Fans Only interview with Philip Winchester picks up exactly where we left off last week. Having discussed family, acting and of course Strike Back, we learned a great deal about what keeps our favorite actor grounded and motivated. This week: that perfect role, fans and the fan page and the perfect car for bopping around Montana (and why, quite possibly, he shouldn’t be allowed to drive it.)
