SUPERNATURAL - COLLIDER: Misha Collins Interview

At the end of Season 6, on The CW drama Supernatural, fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins) made a deal with the King of Hell to find the door to Purgatory and open it. In return, and against the warnings of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), he now harnesses the power of all monster souls after absorbing them, making him God-like. With no idea of how to stop Castiel, Season 7 finds everyone’s favorite demon hunters reeling from the loss of their friend, as they realize they are about to face an enemy more shrewd and adaptable than any they’ve ever fought.

During a recent interview, actor Misha Collins talked about the evolution of Castiel over the seasons, how being God is not all it’s cracked up to be, that he first learned Castiel was heading down this road at the end of Season 5, and how much he’s enjoyed working with co-star Mark Sheppard...


... Q: Are you surprised with how things have turned out, over the period of time you’ve played Castiel?

COLLINS: "Yeah, it was just supposed to be a few episodes, originally. Actually, when I auditioned for it, I thought it was one episode. Then, it turned out it was three. And then, it was six. And then, it was 12. It kept evolving. Yes, of course, it’s always a surprise when they decide to keep you longer. Jared [Padalecki] and Jensen [Ackles], who play Sam and Dean, are up in Vancouver, largely isolated from their friends and family. I went up there to shoot a couple episodes, and they really liked me. It was like they had a friend up there, and they absolutely insisted that I be kept on, so the writers totally retooled the show, just so that Jared and Jensen would have a friend because Canadians hate them, as a rule. No..."
