Occasionally when I have that much time, you pick up the occasional fluke sighting. Sunday afternnon I had such a sighting. I noticed Supernatural bodyguard & general thorn in my side Clif at the airport. with the boys likely not even on a plane yet in SD I was unsure why he was there. My 1st instinct was maybe Genevieve Padalecki & Jared's new son Thomas were coming in, since Jared had told me recently they are coming in "next week" (depending who you ask, a week COULD start on a Sunday to some people?).
Eventually his party arrived, it was none other than Alan Ackles & his wife Donna. If the last name looks familiar to you, yes, you are right, he is related to Jensen.
The father & mother of the Supernatural star came into Vancouver so that Alan, an actor himself, mainly known for voice over work & a few spots on the old & new Dallas as well as Walker, Texas Ranger, could do a small role in the episode Jensen is directing. I have been told by someone he IS NOT here to do the role of "Benny" as some blogs have suggested. Just a short 2 or 3 line dialogue scene in Jensen's directed episode.
Below is a few pics of Alan as he arrived in Vancouver.
