For the first time in a very long time we have a brand new interview with Danneel! Speaking with Samantha Highfill with Entertainment Weekly, she talked about her first scene with Jensen, Jared and Misha and also talked in depth about her character Sister Jo.
The best part for me was hearing Danneel’s reasons for why she chose to go on the show:
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: After 13 years, what made you finally want to join in on the fun?
DANNEEL ACKLES: Mostly the character. I haven’t acted in a couple years and Eugenie [Ross-Leming], who is Bob Singer’s wife and one of the executive producers and writers on the show, wrote this character with her partner, Brad [Buckner], and she called me and she pitched it. [Sister Jo] is such a badass. I was like, “Yeah, this is what I want to do.” I didn’t want to go on Supernatural and be a love interest of the week or have the guys kill me in some horrific way. But this character, she’s just a badass. And where else can you go and bring your kids to work and hand them off to A camera while you’re shooting? So it was a no-brainer for me.
Take the time to read the rest of the interview at the source – it is a great read!
Don’t forget Supernatural airs tomorrow (08/02/2018) on the CW at 9pm!
