En massa saker har nu framkommit och blivit bekräftat om avsnitt 7×03 – Jensens avsnitt.
Det kommer troligen att ha namnet: ”The Girl Next Door.”
Colin Ford kommer att spela Sam som ung (det är han som har spelat Sam som ung i alla de tidigare avsnitten, med flashbacks), vilket betyder att det kommer vara flashbacks till när Sam var 15 år och träffar en tjej vid namn Amy som kommer rädda hans liv och hon vill övertala honom om att rymma iväg med henne.
I nutid kommer Sam att träffa Amy igen och får reda på att hon har ett ”normalt” liv med en son och ett jobb.
Avsnittet kommer troligen att sändas 7 oktober.
We always love a peek into our favorite characters’ pasts, so we’re going to just go ahead and call this excellent news.
”Supernatural” begins production on Season 7 in Vancouver in early July — and reps confirm to Zap2it exclusively that Colin Ford, one of our favorite recurring guest stars, will be returning as young Sam Winchester for the third episode, tentatively titled ”The Girl Next Door.”
Brock Kelly, who played opposite Ford as young Dean Winchester, is on deck to return for Season 7 as well. Though contracts have not been officially signed, Kelly’s reps confirm to Zap2it, ”There is a strong possibility that he will return.”
UPDATE: Warner Bros. tells Zap2it that Kelly will not be appearing in episode 703. Reps for Kelly tell us that he is in discussions for future episodes.
We’re told that the episode involves Sam (Jared Padalecki) having flashbacks to when he was 15 years old, when a girl named Amy saved his life and tried to convince him to run away with her.
In the present day, Sam and Amy meet again, and he finds that she’s settled into a ”normal” life with a son and a steady job.
The episode, expected to air on October 7, is to be directed by series star Jensen Ackles. It will be the first episode of Season 7 filmed, in order for Ackles to have sufficient prep time. Ackles previously directed fan favorite episode ”Weekend at Bobby’s” in Season 6.
Ford first appeared as young Sam in Season 3’s ”A Very Supernatural Christmas.” He returned in Season 4’s ”After School Special” and ”When The Levee Breaks,” and Season 5’s ”Dark Side of the Moon.” The 14-year-old actor has an impressive resume which includes roles on ”Hawaii Five-0,” ”CSI: Miami,” and ”Family Guy.”
Nästa ut i raden av intervjuer från winchesterfamilybusiness.com är med Gabriel Tigerman som spelar Andrew (Andy) Gallagher i två avsnitt i säsong 2.
I was extremely happy to receive the reply from Gabriel Tigerman that he would be willing to do an interview for WFB this summer. If any of you have seen him at a Supernatural convention, you already know how hilarious, spontaneous and quick-witted he can be. A master at improvisation, he has so much joy and energy that he just bounces from one question to the next, each enhanced with Gabe’s special brand of talent so that even answers to bizarre questions are interesting and funny which is an instant fan delight. And this interview is no exception.
Gabriel Tigerman, who plays Andrew (Andy) Gallagher on the series, has appeared in two episodes during season two, as one of Azazel’s ‘special’ children. He brings a lot of his own personality to the role, including sensitivity, intelligence, love and respect for people, and a bit of Andy’s naivety.
I say ‘plays’ on the series because, while Andy died in his last episode, no one is REALLY dead on “Supernatural.” And as Gabriel himself points out at conventions, his remains were never ‘salted and burned’, so his reappearance is still a possibility. Besides, this is “Supernatural,” no one stays dead here.
Mr. Tigerman shares with us his insight into and love for Andy, how he acquired the role, his love for the impala, some behind-the-scene fun with Jared and future ventures for him and his wife, Kathryn Fiore.
Gabe Tigerman is a delight for fans of all age groups whether at a convention, a personal appearance or an interview. I hope you all have as much fun reading his interview as I did.
“Supernatural” fans love hearing about what it’s like on set and what happens when the cameras aren’t rolling. Are there any particular moments that stand out for you?
I remember meeting Jared’s dogs one morning on the way to set. He let them ride with me in the back seat of the SUV. It was just me and two gigantic, friendly dogs in a small, confined space. They drank my coffee while I wasn’t looking.
You originally auditioned for a part in “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things.” What was that part and how did you get cast as Andy Gallagher instead?
I don’t remember the name of the part, but it was a guy who re-animates his girlfriend. It doesn’t end well for him. I recall her popping up from the back seat of his car and snapping his neck. He clearly didn’t read “Pet Cemetery”.
That was my first audition for “Supernatural”. I left the audition convinced I was going to book the part. I was wrong. I did, however, get a call a week later to come back in to read for the part of “Andy Gallagher”, the loveable, mind-controlling stoner. And the rest was history!
After you landed the role of Andy, what did you seek to bring to the character? How did you envision playing the part?
There was one line in the episode that I thought was the most telling for Andy. And Tim Iacafano, the director, agreed that it was the key to the character. Sam asks Andy why, if he has these amazing mind control powers does he live in a van. Andy’s response: “I’ve got everything I need.” Andy’s a simple, sweet guy and I wanted to bring that…and a green, silk dragon kimono.
Andy was one of the more endearing characters on “Supernatural.” Other than being eviscerated and left for dead, is there anything you would have liked to change in your character?
Other than the ability to fight off little demon girls, there isn’t really anything I would change about Andy. He’s really one of the most fun characters I’ve had the pleasure of playing. Wait! I know! I would have made it so Andy’s evil twin was an IDENTICAL twin. That way I could have played both parts AND shot myself. And maybe the evil twin would’ve had a mustache. THEN it would have been the perfect part!
When you drove the Impala, were you able to really take off and drive around or were there a lot of restrictions placed on the driving? Which would you rather own, the Impala or Andy’s Barbarian Queen van?
I hadn’t seen enough of the show to know exactly how significant the Impala was, but as soon as I was given the keys, I saw how immediately nervous everyone got. I topped out at about 10 miles per hour.
In a fantasy world, I’d pick the van and drive cross-country going on wacky adventures. In real life, though, you gotta go for the Impala. I mean, come on. It’s the Impala!
If you had Andy’s powers, would you tell anyone or would you keep it a secret?
You definitely gotta keep something like that on the D.L. or the government will show up at your door and you’ll get whisked off to someplace that’s not on any maps where they’d perform scientific experiments on you in order to harness your powers for military use. This scenario most likely ends in a brutal and thorough autopsy. No good.
Were you informed of Andy’s untimely demise beforehand or did you find out when you read the script for “All Hell Breaks Loose?”
Oh yes. I was told beforehand. I ran into the casting associate at a film festival a couple of weeks before shooting. She’d had a couple of chardonnays and she ran up to me and excitedly declared “You TOTALLY die in the next episode!”
You have attended many “Supernatural” conventions, most recently San Francisco this year. Your talks are a riot. Do you have any special moments from a con you would be willing to share? Also, there are a number of videos on YouTube of you singing at the Karaoke parties. Do you like doing the Karaoke and Dessert events?
First of all, thank you. Second of all, I think the talks are my favorite part of the con. It’s like one long, interactive, improv game where we all get to know each other a little better and I get to answer questions like the poster child for A.D.D.
As far as the karaoke parties go…Me singing is something that I regret inflicting upon anyone, let alone the World Wide Web. I apologize to anyone who was harmed by listening to my rendition of The Proclaimers’ “500 Miles”. I also apologize to The Proclaimers for my rendition of “500 Miles”.

Den 22 juni klev Jensen in i skrivar studion (The writers office) för att få en första titt på manuset till det avsnitt som han ska regissera.
Assistenten Rebecca Desertine delade med sig av en bild på sig själv tillsammans med Jensen och den bok som hon har skrivit.
Denna intervjun är från början av året, så det förekommer inga spoilers om säsong 6, för er som inte har sett hela än.
Utöver äran så har han även gjort en intervju med siten:
When we nominated 10 up-and-comers in our TV Stars We Wanna See Become Movie Stars poll, we weren’t expecting the deluge of support from fans of ”Supernatural” star Jared Padalecki. But after talking to Padalecki — the winner of the poll with a remarkable 51 percent of the votes — we realize that… maybe we should have.
”I guess the reason so many people voted is because ‘Supernatural’ has such a rabid following,” Padalecki explains. ”They’re really supportive of me. I wouldn’t have that following if it weren’t for ‘Supernatural.'”
”Thanks a million,” he tells fans. ”That makes me feel really good, really flattered. I don’t know what to say, that’s huge. Really cool.”
In honor of the big win, NextMovie talked to Padalecki about his Hollywood plans and more.
If you do make the jump to movies, are there any roles you’re shooting for?
I want to do everything. There’s a book that I read, really a great book — it’s called ”Lone Survivor” and I think they’re trying to make it into a movie. I would love to play Marcus Luttrell, who was the author and the ”lone survivor.” He’s a national hero; he’s very courageous and heroic in insurmountable danger, so it’s something I’d love to explore. And being involved in – what, three wars, right now? The U.S? — it’s easy to sit here and worry about rats in my vents and wisdom teeth being pulled.* Meanwhile, there are a lot of people who don’t have running water and… [there are men and women] fighting for our freedom. I’m really grateful for that and I’d love to explore that on screen.
Long story short, I see movies all the time that I’d love to be in.
Anything you’ve seen recently?
A lot of the movies I’d like to be in, I haven’t been right for yet. The first one that comes to mind (because I just watched it again) is ”Inglorious Basterds.” It was such an awesome movie, such great acting. And actually, my father’s a big war buff , so I became a big war buff — anything having to do with World War II, I’d love to be a part of. I’d love to do a war movie in some way, shape or form.
I’d love to do a comedy. I’m terrified of comedy. I don’t think I’m funny, but I guess that’s why it’s so thrilling.
Is there a particular actor whose career you’d really love to mirror?
Yeah, I really like Tom Hanks’ career. It’s hard not to like his career. There are a lot of actors that I really love to watch, actors who I have fun watching — I think Johnny Depp is phenomenal. But I wouldn’t want that career as much as I’d like a career like Tom Hanks — he kind of represents the everyman. It’s difficult to watch a movie with Tom Hanks and not feel like you’re experiencing with him as much as watching him. I lean towards him. And everything I’ve heard from people in the business is that he’s a really genuine, respectable, grateful guy. I’d love to work with him as much as someday have a career like his.
Would you ever consider leaving ”Supernatural” if the right role popped up at the wrong time for your shooting schedule?
I wouldn’t. I’m a Texas guy, and the good and bad of that is that I’m always, first and foremost, loyal. If it weren’t for ”Supernatural,” I wouldn’t have a lot of the blessings that I have today, so I’m going to play it out. I’m going to give it my all. I’ll be with the cast and crew for the remainder, as long as the fans want us on the air and the network obliges.
I’d love to have a movie career. I’m still pretty young. I’m not going to be 29 for another month. So if the show goes another year, I’m 30. If it goes for five years, I’m 34. I think I’m hopefully in the dawn of my career, not in the dusk, so I think I’d be happier sticking it out with ”Supernatural.”
Who is your TV star you want to see make it big in movies?
There’s a buddy of mine who I think is really talented — Zachary Levi. On ”Chuck,” obviously, he plays Chuck. I’m a big fan of him as a person. I think he’s a really nice, cool guy. He’s really funny. He’s fun to be around and I think he’d be fun to see on the big screen. Maybe he and I, we’ll grow together.
Don’t let this influence your answer, we talked to Alexis Bledel and she totally said yes — but if they came to you with a solid script, would you still do a ”Gilmore Girls” movie?
One hundred percent. I would love to. I really would truly love to. It was so fun. I have nothing but fond memories of that show. I came to it straight out of high school, I grew up on the show, and I’d love to go revisit that character.
That’s one of the fun things, about a TV show like ”Gilmore Girls” or ”Supernatural” — you get these really passionate followers that put you in the lead in awesome polls like this. And someday maybe you get to go revisit them on the big screen. Maybe that would be a nice way to appease the people who were nice enough to vote for me.
Oh, on that note, can I make a shameless plug?
I just got a Twitter two weeks ago. I finally made the plunge and got a Twitter. I was going to do @jaredpadalecki, since that’s my name, but that’s already taken. I guess there are several Jared Padaleckis out in the world, so I’m actually @jarpad. That’s the real me.
* These are the real details of Padalecki’s bad week – wisdom tooth removal and a rat problem — and the reasons why he’s especially grateful for your votes.
Som ni kanske kommer ihåg så har jag tidigare skrivit om att Jensen kommer att regissera ett avsnitt ur säsong 7, precis som han gjorde i säsong 6.
Då var det avsnittet 6×02 – ”Weekend at Bobby’s”. Denna gången kommer Jensens avsnitt att bli nummer 3 i säsongen, men precis som förra året så kommer de att spela in avsnitt först, så att Jensen har tid på sig att förbereda sig.
Enligt Jareds tweets så kommer de att börja spela in om en sådär 2 veckor och han har precis fått manus till de två första avsnitten. Härligt, härligt 😉
”Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles got his first taste of life behind the camera in Season 6, when he directed the fan favorite episode ”Weekend at Bobby’s.” Ackles will return to the director’s chair in early July when the cast and crew returns to Vancouver to begin work on Season 7.
Though Ackles’ episode is the first one that the ”Supernatural” gang will shoot this summer, it will actually air as the third episode of the season, The CW confirms to Zap2it. The shooting order of the episodes was shifted in order to allow Ackles reasonable time to prepare. (The episode schedule was similarly rearranged last season to accommodate his directorial debut.)
Speaking of prep time — judging by a tweet from Ackles’ co-star, Jared Padalecki, they’re cutting it closer than expected this year. ”T-minus two weeks to shoot and I JUST got the first two scripts?” he wrote. ”Who wants a copy? Please send fax numbers ;)”
(He wasn’t kidding — one lucky fan checked her fax machine to find the cover page of the script, with a personal note in the margins.)
Last season, Ackles directed an episode that focused heavily on Jim Beaver‘s character, Bobby — meaning Ackles didn’t have to spend too much time directing scenes that he also acted in. This season, he may not have that luxury! We’re sure to hear much more about his second crack at directing at Comic-Con, where Ackles and Padalecki will headline the largest ”Supernatural” panel that the convention has ever seen on Sunday, July 24.
The episode is written by Andrew Dabb and Daniel Loflin, who also wrote ”Weekend at Bobby’s.”
