TV GUIDE: Jim Beaver Says Goodbye to Supernatural

Supernatural's beloved Bobby Singer died last Friday, thanks to a bullet in the brain from a shape-shifting Leviathan. Veteran actor Jim Beaver, who played the crotchety mentor to demon hunting brothers Sam and Dean Winchester on The CW series, talked to TV Guide Magazine about Bobby's shocking demise, his last days on the set and his upcoming role on Justified...


... TV Guide Magazine: You're so nice about being killed off. Do you like the way Bobby went out? The 10th episode, December's "Death's Door," the one before we knew he had died, was both moving and action-filled.

Jim Beaver: "For a guest actor — which I always was on the show — to get an episode like that is just amazing. But I had two Bobby-centric episodes that were just about the most amazing things I've ever done. I was really happy with what they gave me. When I turned the script's page and I saw that Bobby's last word [to Sam and Dean] was "Idjits," I thought, "Man, this is just perfect." I was really, really impressed with the script and the variety of things we got to do. It was very complex, and a lot of fun to shoot. I was really happy to get to work with Carrie Anne Fleming, who played Bobby's wife, again. The only real downside was that most of my active stuff wasn't with Jared and Jensen. When I was with them I was mostly in a hospital bed, getting my toes twisted by Jared off camera. Which is always what happens when I'm in a hospital bed on that show..."
