Got a Question for Dean’s New Angel?

misha collins castiel

Tuesday afternoon, this TV Addict will be chatting with Misha Collins, or as SUPERNATURAL fans now know him as, Castiel, the mysterious Angel of the Lord. So if you’ve got any questions for the newest [and if we may be so bold as to say, fantastic] addition to the SUPERNATURAL mythos, please post away in the comments below.

[Update 3:20PM] Having just got off the phone with Misha Collins, questions are no longer needed. But thanks for playing and be sure to check back tomorrow for the full interview.

    Why is he so hot?

    On a more serious note, how many episodes will he be around for? Is he having much fun on the set (given that Jared & Jensen are known to be pranksters)? Can he reveal if his character is good or bad or more specifically, is he lucifer in disguise?

  • Charles

    How did you get the part of Castiel? Were you just audtioning or did they call you having seen previous work?

  • Hil

    Hey, I was going to ask him why he was so hot! Now I’ll have to think of something else.

    Ok, since your character is possessing a believer’s body (supposedly invited) how concerned are you that Dean already fatally stabbed the host in your first scene? Does the angel have some kind of healing power for the host, or will the host end up dead should the angel stop possessing him? I am mainly concerned with your longevity. We’d like you to stay around a while.

  • Rhetta

    Have you ever watched the show before? Are you a fan of genre television? Have you been given a lot of information about your character’s storyline or just a general idea of where he’s going that’s expanded on from episode to episode?

  • Shannon

    Do you have any theories on if your a good or dark angel? Who have you gotten to work with besides Jensen? How many episodes have you shot and do you know how many you’re signed on for? Is there anything specific you’d like to see your character get to do? Also just tell him he’s a fantastic actor and doing a great job!

  • hermit

    Great job so far as Castiel and keep it up. What are the chances of being on more episodes than what you are currently signed up for? I love the chemistry between you and Jensen, however, my tv is overheating from all the hotness when both of you are on the same screen. 😀

    I loved your interpretation of Castiel. How much is your input and how much is direction?

  • Emy

    What a first impression you made!
    Welcome to the supernatural family!

    How are you blending with the cast?…..
    Especially Jensen and Jared!
    Are you getting involved in the pranks?
    What surprises can you tell us about your character for this season?
    How many episodes will you be in?
    In general we want to know EVERYTHING!

    Fantastic first impression and I really want to see more of you!

  • aidanirl

    his Castiel was absolutly great! and im not talking about how hot he was)))i truly enjoyed his performance! thanks for that!

    QUESTION: what does MISHA think about Castiel? Is he an Angel or Demon????why Dean is so special to God??? Is Castial a Menfor for Dean???

  • Diana

    How was to work with Jared Padalecki?

  • Castiel is the best :).

    If someone give You an offer to play an Angel in the movie, that will You take it?

    Sorry for my bad English

  • Charli

    I’d like to know if we’ll see Castiel tangle with Sam Winchester in the future, they seem on pretty alternate sides of the spectrum now and Sam’s bound to have some questions as to what this angel wants with his brother.

    Welcome Misha.

  • How You feel, when You hear: “Yes, You’re in. You’re in Supernatural Cast”?

    Sorry for my bad English

  • Laivine

    Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your performance.

  • Linda

    Since you worked one -on- one with Jensen(and took out Jim’s Bobby…lol), will you get the chance to work opposite Jared as well (or are you just a one man ‘angel’)?

  • Rachael

    What’s it like working with Jared and Jensen?

    Is it weird coming into the series after it’s been going on for three seasons, since most of the cast seem really close?

    Who do you like better as a character, Sam or Dean?

  • Karen

    I have to start off by saying that Misha was fantastic in the season 4 premiere, such a fabulous addition to the cast.

    My question is: Have you watched any of the previous seasons of Supernatural?

  • Hi Misha!!!
    I’m From Lima – Perú, Congratulations and Welcome to the Supernatural’s family, and i want to say you one thing …. CASTIEL ROCKS!!!!!
    Here is my question:
    1.- Are you believe in angels?
    Thanxs, and all the good vibrations of the Supernatural Fan’s in Latinamerica specially of the fans Club in the WB Latinamerican Board
    Bye and Kisses

  • Artemis3

    I keep trying to think of something cool and interesting to ask but I’ve reduced to a brainless fangirl so…great job on the scene on “Lazarus Rising” probably the most memorable entrance of a character I’ve seen on TV and absolute brilliant delivery and body language, just perfect. I’ll shut up now.

  • Hi Misha!!!

  • Shann

    What if any outside sources did you utilize in preparation for your interpretation as an (intense, beautiful, gentle) Angel of the Lord? Did you read passages from the bible or watch any movies?

  • cassi

    I really liked the Castiel character in the premiere so I’ve got a few questions for Misha Collins:
    -How was it working with the SPN Crew(not just Jared and Jensen but also the other crew members as well, Kim Manners etc.)?
    -Have you met Kripke?
    -How did you get the role of Castiel? Did you do a normal casting or did they approach you (hey, you have to play our new angel guy – Kripke) ;)?
    -Have you been an SPN fan before you got casted as Castiel? Or did you know that the show existed?
    -Have Jared or Jensen pulled a prank on you yet?

  • Ali

    Everyone else already asked the big ones (how long are you going to be around, is Castiel really a good guy or is he jerking Dean’s chain, etc), so I just want to say that I really enjoyed your work in the premiere, and everyone I’ve talked to thinks Castiel’s a really intriguing character and is excited to see where the story goes from here. So, keep up the great work! 🙂

  • Linda

    Hey Misha,

    Great job in Lazarus Rising! How did you approach playing Castiel? Have you been told about Castiel’s true nature or agenda and where his storyline is going this season? I love your dynamic with Jensen, and I have to say, the two of you have an amazing dynamic already. I’m really looking forward to more Dean and Castiel this season. Thanks!

  • Hi, Misha!

    I love Castiel and I think that season will be awesome with him! I really enjoyed your perfomance in the show!

    And my question is: How you prepare yourself to personify Castiel?Is there something or someone it influenced you?

    Sorry my bad english, I’m a brazilian XD

    Kisses and good luck with show!

  • Brenda

    First a comment, I haven’t been that captivated by five minutes of television in a really long time. What an entrance!!

    As for questions, my main one is the same as many others here… how long do we get to keep you????

    But for my serious question, how does one go about preparing for the part of an angel? You were able to imbue just an alien quality to Castiel in just those few minutes, but at the same time such an innocence as well. Did Kripke or any of the Powers That Be discuss with you how to play the character and what kind of demeanor they wanted to see, or did they just give you generalities and let you come up with those detailed touches yourself?

  • Daniela

    First of all, congratulations for your performance! I must say that every single person i’ve talked to on different forums and sites absolutely LOVED how you played Castiel! It’s quickly becomming one of the best characters of this show!
    I wanna know if you’ll play Castiel until the end, or Castiel will change the body he’s possesing now! I’d certainly love for Misha to play Castiel as long as the character will be on the show!

  • Kasi

    We’ve seen Castiel interacting with Dean, and he says he has work for the eldest Winchester. But will we see Castiel with Sam at all?

  • Patrick_NIKEMEN90

    What job Dean have to do ?

  • Anya

    Do you find it scary or flattering that mere hours after the season premiere, Supernatural fangirls were already writing fanfiction about Castiel shagging Dean?

  • Mark

    Any chance you’ll get signed on as a regular in Season 5? How many more episodes will you be in this season? The more the merrier I say, your character is the best thing to happen to this show in a while.

    How was the audition process? And how did you react to having to play an “angel”? Were you reluctant to playing a role that could easily come off as cheesy and very “Touched by an Angel”?

    5 minutes in and I’m already loving this character. Keep up the awesome work and can’t wait to see more appearances from you.

  • Mark

    “[Update 3:20PM] Having just got off the phone with Misha Collins, questions are no longer needed.”

    Wow, I’m an idiot. Just noticed that.

  • Betina

    Hi! i´m from Brazil, and a big fan of supernatural. My question is: What kind of job Castiel and “God” have to Dean? I have to say that when you said that you had a job for him, and the credits started, i get dissapointed! And what Castiel it´s up to do with the brothers??? And by the way, the show is great! you are realy doing a great job! kisses, Betina. (sorry my english. like i said before, i´m a brazilian! he)

  • James William

    what you’re thinking about the experience in supernatural?

  • I didn’t read through all million of the questions before but……hopefully this wasn’t asked.
    Have you been in any other shows, movies or anything we may have seen before?

    Welcome to Supernatural. Can’t wait to see how your character changes the show (no pressure hehe)
