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.
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.)
