The new season, their 10th, will begin in July. Till then, I have a few odds & ends left over from the past 2 years that I never used for whatever reason in the past.
A few from their fan conventions they have here yearly of Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, DJ Qualls & others.
Also, a few shots of Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles returning from Chicago after shooting the failed backdoor pilot for Bloodlines, which was episode 20 of this past season. Plus Misha Collins leaving town during a break.
Lastly some departing shots of Mark Sheppard and Jensen Ackles as they left Vancouver at the end of season 9.
So first up... a few old shots from past Convention weekends.
I cant be sure, but I think I have managed to see Misha Collins out & about almost every con weekend here. Some shots here from 2012, and 2013 of Castiel roaming the city during the weekend.
As well Jim Beaver stops to talk to some fans in the courtyard.
DJ Qualls grabs a snack in his downtime.
While I personally will never support these conventions, it is still cool for those of you with no other way to ever see these stars to have the chance I guess. Vancouver being the hometown of the show always seems to nab a pretty decent roster.
As well, a few photos of Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles returning to Vancouver after filming episode 20 in Chicago. The episode, which was intended to be a backdoor pilot for a spin off that got axed needed a few shots of them in Chicago, so the pair left for 2 days of shooting.
Upon returning, I asked both of them how the filming for that went and they both had similar replies....cold. Apparently, the mild Vancouver winters had not prepared them properly for the real winters that Chicago can have, and both of them were less than excited with having to work in those condition.
When I joked that it probably made them appreciate Vancouver's weather a bit more, they both were pretty quick to agree.
First up was Mark Sheppard. The man who plays Crowley was in a good mood upon finishing his season 9 filming. When I told him I hoped he would be back for season 10, he played it coy & acted as if he didn't already know Crowley survived.
A little while later I caught up with Jensen Ackles for the final time of the season.
He was also in a great mood. The man who plays Dean Winchester seemed pretty happy to have some time off. Seemed excited to finally get some time to spend with his new daughter, Justice Jay whom he rarely saw for more than a weekend throughout most of the season.
He asked us if we got Jared leaving that morning. Both my buddy and I were disappointed to learn we picked the wrong flight to cover for him. But also thankful at least Jensen let us know so we didn't waste time waiting on him either. Just wish he had told us BEFORE he started signing.. I would have focused on solo items, instead of duo items that I now need to get Jared on eventually. Oh well.
So that's it for my SPN photo dump.
I MIGHT do a Season 9 review sometime soon. I've started doing reviews, episodic, seasonal or complete series ones. Although so far I only really have 1 review up (for the How I Met Your Mother series finale). But I have started writing an entire S9 review...perhaps I'll have it finished before they start filming season 10.
As always, you can check out my Supernatural autographs gallery for any of the signed items obtained over the past few seasons I still have.
See you soon season 10.
