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."

Medical career

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.

Charitable work

Peter is founder and director of Project Edan, a non-profit organization which raises funds for children's charities such as UNICEF and the Boston Children's Hospital. One of Project Edan's focuses is UNICEF's Believe in Zero campaign, which hopes to reduce child mortality.
