‘Fringe’ star John Noble discusses ‘Sleepy Hollow’ his character Henry Parrish and a role in ‘Star Wars’

The new show Sleepy Hollow has proven to be a big hit, already renewed for a second season, and now gains more fans support with a role played by Fringe star John Noble.

Noble discussed with Collider about joining the show and what attracted him to the Sleepy Hollow adaptation.

John Noble Tom Mison Sleepy Hollow photo“I knew the evolution of the show because I had remembered talking to Alex and Roberto at the 100th episode party for Fringe.  They said they have this new show, and actually said to me, “Would you come on and do a guest role in the pilot?”  And then, nothing happened.  One of my favorite reading topics is early American History, and this is about the Revolutionary War.  I find that whole period absolutely fascinating, and have read widely on it, so that would be enough to make me watch it or be interested in it.  But when you link it in with this extraordinary legend that was written in 1826, or something, that is so rich and potent.  It’s almost a perfect combination.”

Without spoiling the show, Noble explains who his character, Henry Parrish.

“Henry Parrish is a reluctant savior.  He has this ability, in a sense, to remove evil from a person, hence the name, The Sin Eater.  Even though he doesn’t want to, he’s called into action basically to save Ichabod’s life, and he does.  That is our first introduction, and we establish a relationship that you can see that there is some sort of chemistry between him and Ichabod, and the other principals.”

It may surprise fans to learn that Noble would love to join the new Star Wars film.

“You’ve been reading the rumors about Stars Wars, have you?  The big franchise that is going to open up is Star Wars.  We know that.  That would be a dream, if you got that.  I don’t know.  It’s not that I wouldn’t certainly consider other things, but Star Wars is the one that appeals to me most.”
