Methos is for sure my favorite character from the whole Highlander franchise. How can he be 5000 years and stay so aloof, charming and perfect? Even after all those thousands of years he rode with Kronos, Silas and Caspian…
His scene with Alexa is one of the few where my little heart just melted, it was so cute, and he got me at “Because the alternative is unthinkable”
“I killed. But I didn’t just kill fifty, I didn’t kill a hundred. I killed a thousand. I killed TEN thousand! And I was good at it. And it wasn’t for vengeance, it wasn’t for greed. It was because… I liked it. Cassandra was nothing. Her village was nothing. Do you know who I was? I was Death. Death — Death on a horse. When mothers warned their children that the monster would get them, that monster was me. I was the nightmare that kept them awake at night. Is that what you want to hear?!”
There should have been a series dedicated to this character, it was a goldmine! And what did they do? Highlander: The Raven. I mean, what the flying fuck.
Anyway, love Methos, love Peter Wingfield and it was the best part of Highlander.
Well, that and the Kalas episodes. But that’s for another day.
Rocking the old school fandom days with Peter Wingfield. British actor who played Methos in Highlander the Series. Probably the first major actor crush I had aside from Wil Wheaton whom I crushed on as a teenager.
I met Peter a few years ago. By this point I’d handled enough actors at cons to be sorta jaded, but Peter was a really nice guy. Came in at the last minute when someone cancelled and was extremely generous and undemanding.
