Supernatural’s latest cast member, Misha Collins, gave JustJared.com guest contributor Alana Lynch a call yesterday to talk about his latest role as the angel Castiel. (You may have seen Misha on the first season of 24, as well as guest appearances on CSI, CSI: New York, and Without a Trace.) Misha talked on-set pranks, his dream of kayaking in the Olympics, and the possibility of Alanis Morisette making an appearance as God on Supernatural.
JJ: Your introduction to Supernatural was well-received by the fans, did you find that surprising or reassuring?
MC: Yeah, I think it was both surprising and reassuring. Well, it was definitely reassuring and I’m surprised by the magnitude of the warm reception.
JJ: Would you say you might be intimated by it?
MC: Sometimes I feel like when I’ve just started on other shows, this is just one of a million procedural dramas. Nobody’s watching it too carefully, so you get the sense its on in the background while people are cooking dinner or something. And seeing how closely the fans watch [Supernatural], and how enthusiastic they were about my character, and how they panned other characters in the past, it seems like the stakes just get ramped up really quickly. And it kinda makes me want to do a good job and not screw up. I’d hate to fall out of the good graces of the fans. So, yeah, it’s a little intimidating.
