UPI News Service, 02/15/2009
Actor Noah Wyle said the character he will reprise on "ER" best personified the U.S. TV drama, now in its final episodes.
Wyle, 37, said his "ER" character, Dr. John Carter, went through the same emotions and reactions during his 11 seasons of the hit NBC series that the show's fans were meant to feel, the New York Post reported Sunday.
"It certainly wasn't shot from Carter's point of view, but what he was witnessing and responding to was an indicator of what the audience was supposed to be responding to as well," Wyle said.
Now Wyle, who was member of the original "ER" cast that debuted with the1994 pilot "24 Hours," will appear on the series once again as part of the drama's final season.
Wyle's character makes his Season 15 appearance Thursday, becoming the most recent "ER" alum to revisit the show prior to its final episode on April 2, the Post said.
