In this article you get two for the price of one! These are both of the interviews from Nightsky and Alice in the Comic Con press room with Alex Calvert, aka Jack on Supernatural. He's in a pretty casual mood this year! I guess this Comic Con thing is old hat now. :). He shares some insights into Jack and his time as an actor on the show. There's some very slight spoilers in these interviews, but nothing too descriptive or shocking.
This is my favorite interview out of all of Comic Con this year. Why? Well, because I've had this running gag with Misha for about 12 years now, ever since I met him at his first con in New Jersey. Every time he sees me, which has been a couple dozen times now, he recognizes me, he says hello, but he can't remember my name. He's resorted to tricks before, like claiming that he knows my name but doesn't say it, then asks the person next to me what my name is and then says "Bye Alice!" as I walk away. When I saw him on Friday night at Comic Con, where he again didn't remember my name, he told me a cute story that his memory is so bad, he couldn't remember the lock code on his phone. He hadn't been able to get into it all day.
So yes, when I was in my place at the roundtable all prepared to speak to our fandom overlord, I was floored by the fact that he looked around the table, saw me and then said "Alice." Better yet, I got it all on film!!! It's truly a breakthrough for Misha and myself, yet at the same time a bittersweet ending to our game since this is the last Comic Con for "Supernatural." Misha was a little more serious this time, the gravity of the situation possibly hitting him that day, especially after the emotional panel. All I can say is that over the years Misha has been one of my favorites to interview, but this is the one I will remember most.
No spoilers in this interview. Just a guy who reflects back on what is clearly one of the most unexpected experiences of his life. There's also a really cute moment in the beginning where Jensen during the table switch cross checks Misha into the wall. It's rather priceless.
This is Nightsky's interview with Misha Collins in the press room at San Diego Comic Con. There are some spoilers here about Castiel's reaction to the events of the season fourteen finale. Otherwise, Misha talks about how his character has changed him, how he felt about doing the final panel, and what his future projects may be (hint, they've started pre-orders on his new cookbook). As usual, you can never predict what Misha is going to say!
This is my table's interview with Jared. Yes, that's me wishing him a Happy Belated Birthday in the beginning. He shares some experiences on "Supernatural" and what he sees the show's legacy is. There's also a touching moment with one of the journalists who credits Jared for saving her life through Always Keep Fighting. His message to her is very inspirational. He also ponders what's next after "Supernatural" and what he'd like to see for Sam (it's a really nice down to earth answer).
This is my press table's interview with Jensen Ackles. In this interview, he talks about meeting with the writers in LA and going through the ending of the show. While other interviews have shown his skepticism, in this one he defends the ending and thinks people will like it. He also talks his views on the show's legacy. No spoilers!
This interview is a complete rarity! Usually in the press room, each table usually gets four to five minutes with each actor, six at best. Nightsky completely lucked out. She was at the last table Jared spoke to and their interview went an unheard of 17 minutes! This is that interview in it's entirety. After all, something this good must be shared! I'll issue the usual spoiler alert, but for the most part the guys weren't giving away much [about the s15 plot].
Nightsky: The uniqueness of this year's interviews with Jared (and Jensen and Misha) was how reflective they were about their characters and the show coming to an end. Hearing their perspectives and where they are emotionally right now was very special.
It's been a whirlwind Supernatural day here at San Diego Comic Con, albeit bittersweet. A lot of tears and fond memories over Supernatural's final (ugh!) season and their last appearance here at Comic Con. Alice and Nightsky just finished in the press room and will have a slew of interviews to share over the next few days. Up first, Nightsky's interview with Jensen Ackles. No spoilers here, he mostly shares his thoughts about "Supernatural" ending.
