Misha Collins joined Supernatural this season as the angel, Castiel. Now with rumors of Collins joining the cast of season five as a regular, we were honored here at TV Fanatic to interview this fantastic actor.
So what's it like working with two of the hottest actors on television and what's the future of Castiel? Find out in our exclusive interview:
TVFanatic.com: So is the ink dry, are you an official season five series regular?
Misha Collins: It is official. I received a letter in the mail. I think letters always make things official. I'm thrilled to be apart of it for next season. I'm thrilled I got the news early enough so I can find a new apartment in Vancoucer. I'm not going to be a regular in all the episodes like Jared and Jensen, but I'm definitely gonna be in for the season.
TVFanatic.com: What's it like joining a long running show with such an established fan base?
Misha: It's been great. I've been really surprised that I've been as welcomes into as well. I didn't even know this fan community existed. Some people are nervous about new people joining the show.They're nervous it's going to take away from Jared and Jensen's time. I think it's absurd. I think the show's core is always going to be about these two brothers and their relationship. I think my character is going to be there to help that storyline. Some people are so enthusiastic to have me on. it's been really cool. I thought i was only gonna do a few episodes. It's been a total surprise for me.
TVFanatic.com: With such critical fans, do you find yourself checking the internet to see their reactions?
Misha: No I'm not an Internet guy. I don't Google around. My mother will occasionally send me things. She enjoys trolling the Internet. I'm not somebody who reads blogs. I barely have time to keep up with my email.
TVFanatic.com: What's it like working with Jensen and Jared?
Misha: It's great. I honestly couldn't ask for better co-workers. They work really hard. They always show up prepared. With a really good attitude. They're fun and funny and sarcastic and make the experience on the set enjoyable. We just laugh a lot. I've been on so many other sets where everyone is miserable. I'm really happy to be working on Supernatural.
TVFanatic.com: We've definitely seen Castiel grow as a character, where do you see him going?
Misha: I have no clue. I have feeling that Castiel at his core is a good angel. He's gonna end up serving Sam and Dean in some way. I don't know. That's just my educated guess. It's not like I've gotten a phone call from Eric Kripke, "Oh Misha, we've decided to make Castiel an astronaut next season."
TVFanatic.com: And now for the mandatory question, any Supernatural spoilers you can reveal?
Misha: Sam is gonna be wrestling with the DTs in the coming episodes as he goes through a little demon blood withdrawl. It's gonna be forced cold turkey withdrawl. It will drives a little wedge between him and Dean.
