Miles Meadows is an actor who plays Ponytail Man on Fringe.
At the time he had left acting to take care of his family but was asked by casting to come in specifically. While working on the series the production scheduled his work days around his spouse's Chemotherapy treatments. His character was initially supposed to die in the episode but producers kept it off screen and offered the actor a recurring role. Miles gratefully declined due to family commitments.
When asked about his experience on the show in the 2010 October edition of 'Caras' a Brazilian publication, he raved about the production and creative staff as well as the working environment.
