August 20th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Ok Fringe fans, we’ve got some great news. John Noble is back in Vancouver filming the last season of Fringe. The actor had taken time off to seek treatment for a sleeping disorder that had gotten so bad he couldn’t even work anymore.

The actor, who had dealt with insomnia and sleep apnea for years,took 10 days off and headed to Los Angeles. In an interview with EW Noble said in L.A. he “went to the hospital, had all the tests done, and we put strategies in place to deal with both of those issues, including a space age mask that I wear to bed now – it’s pretty unsightly.”

When asked about fan reactions to his ailments he said,”People were so bloody supportive, it was really touching”.

Cheers to John Noble for getting the help he needed and for getting back to work for the sake of all of us rabid fans who can’t get enough of alternate universe jumping.

The final season of Fringe will premier September 28th.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
