Jensen kommer att regissera det första avsnittet av säsong 8.
Tidigare under veckan sågs han på Vancouvers flygplats.
Då han ska regissera första avsnittet så har han begett sig till Vancouver tidigare än Jared, Mischa och de andra skådespelarna för att förbereda och träffa alla i teamet.
TV Guide har listat de sexigaste Sci-fi stjärnorna och våran Jensen finns på första plats.
Michael Muller/The CW1) Jensen Ackles (Supernatural)
”By far the sexiest man on the planet. His lips are the most perfect lips I’ve seen, and then there’s that body – long, lean and perfectly muscled. He’s not the sexiest sci-fi star, he’s the sexiest man alive.” (lacy215)
2) Jared Padalecki (Supernatural)
”Jared Padalecki is smokin’ hot! He’s tall and has an incredible smile and dimples, not to mention his beautiful hair. He’s the total package – gorgeous looks, smokin body and an awesome sense of humor.” (jennyluvsjared)
Under förra helgen 2-4 mars var Jared & Jensen plus några fler ur Supernatural-familjen på Salute to Supernatural Convention 2012 in Burbank, California .
Nedan kan ni läsa några frågor och svar som Jared & Jensen fick från fansen:
To Jensen – What was it like doing a play?
JENSEN: It was sold out every night and everybody came out. Every night it was butterflies inside. It’s not something that goes away. But I love that nervous anxiety…of here we go, in front of a whole crowd. But I love it out here and we get to talk to the fans live. And make jerks of our selves. Live.
What is your interaction with the crew?
JENSEN: With the crew members? The crew is our family. It’s a very dysfunctional family. There’s not a day on that set that goes by that were not folded over laughing about something.
JARED: We see them every day. More than most people in our lives.
Why does Dean end up in all the costumes?
JENSEN: You mean why does Dean get stuck with all the silly costumes? Yes, I want to know that too. He’s the one that’s always getting beat up. He’s the one that always has to put on the skirts or what or whatever the heck it is.
JARED: So any time I read in a script that has some (costume) I’ll get in to be dressed before Jensen and say “That’s kind of funnier for Dean’s character. And they go “Yeah”.
JENSEN: So you’re the one that’s giving me all the trouble.
What is the most awkward experience you’ve ever had with a fan?
JARED: Someone asked, double hug me. Sorry. I thought they said something else. That was awkward.
JENSEN: I have a funny story. This is going back many years when I was on a soap opera (Days of Our Lives) and we were doing some kind of a promotional thing at a mall in the middle of nowhere. We were on a little stage. There were two stories. There were several of the actors on stage and we’re talking and I feel this thing hit my head. I look up and a girl had put a little notebook and a pen on a fishing wire and fished it all the way down from the second story. And it hit my head and I turn to look up at her. And she goes (making the universal sign of writing). Everybody who was watching was in hysterics and I signed the autograph.
What happened to the handprint on dean’s arm in season 7? It’s gone.
JENSEN: Any injuries from being beaten up and all of his scares, when he (Cass) healed him that went away. All of his scares were healed right. It was a rebirth (in essence). The true story is, they forgot. Honestly they were like, “Oh crap.” And they probably would have gone back and reshot it had they not sat and thought about it. “No,” it would have been gone when Cass healed him.
In the first episode of season 7 with Cass turning into a Leviathan was it weird seeing Misha acting in such a crazy way or it that normal?
JENSEN: He didn’t really rehearse it like that. To be honest we don’t take rehearsals seriously. After seven years Jared and I know what to do. We’ll rehearse it, but a lot of times it’s just going through the motions for the camera guys – so we can get their focus marks and stuff like that. So we’re clowning around with Misha. So we lock it up. Here we go. Sound. Action. And he’s like “Vaueegh” (Sounding like he’s throwing up.)
JARED: And I’m like, what’s wrong with him?
JENSEN: I just peed a little.
JARED: (Laughing.) He did.
JENSEN: I remember I had the same kind of reaction the first time we ever worked together. He comes in the barn door and (in a deeper voice) “I am the one who raised you from Perdition.” And I turned around to my camera guys, and this is before we knew each other, and “Is he for real. That is so weird.” Obviously, the more we got to know Misha, the more they explored the role of Cass, it became obvious that he was making a character choice and it turned out to be a really good one.
JARED: I didn’t work with him at first, but rumor was that he was going to be around for a few episodes. So I go up to Jensen. “Hey, you worked with this Misha guy. What’s the deal?” Jensen is going, “Oh yeah, he’s good. He’s a little weird. I think he’s method or what…” And we’re walking from the stage to our trailers as we’re talking and Misha is sitting on the back of a truck and Jensen’s like, “He’s right there. Act normal. I think he saw us.” Misha is not a method actor and he certainly didn’t become one on the show.
JENSEN: And if he was we completely broke him of that. I would say he did a great job and he also did a great job of not letting us know that he was going to do that, because we probably would have messed with him.
Worst injuries suffered while shooting?
JARED: I took a really bad head kick. We were breaking into something and Jim (Beaver) was sneaking up on a guy walking on a platform. We’re sneaking up on the guards, demons and Jim comes up behind him (a guard) and he’s supposed to go over the railing. We did the first take and it was alright. With the second take the guy his whole body turned and his leg hits me (indicating side of head). So I drop. Man, it hurt. I had to sit down. You don’t expect it, a knee to the side of your head. I think he KO’d me. It was a full knee to the side of the head.
The other one was, I fell the wrong way – Season 2. I go to the hotel, and a vampire comes in and I knock him out and the stunt man hits me from behind. If the camera is there (indicating shot ending chest high) you’re supposed to act from there (indicating down to waist high), but I went too far. And the stunt man (vampire) was still right here (pointing to the floor in front of him) so I couldn’t brace myself and I snapped my wrist.
JENSEN: I haven’t broken any bones yet, but I’ve gotten banged up pretty good. I believe it was “All Hell Breaks Loose Part 2″ when Dean gets thrown into the tombstone. They padded the tombstone – it was kind of rubberized so I could throw myself into it. The problem was the base was solid stone and I threw myself back into it. It always weird when someone is not pushing you to launch yourself. And my funny bone caught the edge and my entire arm went, not with the tingling…it went completely dead. Fred Lane (Azazel) walks up and we had the dialogue and the whole time it felt like my entire hand was on fire. The nerves had been shocked so hard and to this day, I still have sensitivity in that elbow. I don’t know what I did but I never got it checked up. We got through the scene. I just kept going otherwise I was going to start crying.

Jensen Ackles Previews Supernatural Season 7
To the delight of Supernatural‘s fans, the CW horror show — TV Guide Magazine‘s first Fan Favorite cover last year — is returning to its seventh season on Friday, September 23. ”This year,” says executive producer Sera Gamble, ”we were really inspired by one of our touchstone movies when we think about Dean [Jensen Ackles] and Sam [Jared Padalecki] and their relationship — Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. We wanted to pit them against a force that’s much greater than them with great resources and take away the tools that Sam and Dean are used to having. They feel outmatched and cornered. It’s very much a thriller.” With that in mind, TV Guide Magazine caught up with Ackles for more scoop on the upcoming season.
TV Guide Magazine: Congratulations. Your little show is about to start its seventh season. Can you believe it?
Jensen Ackles: No, I can’t. It was unbelievable we made Season 5, then 6, now we’re doing 7 and they’re already looking into the future of 8, so I’m just like, ”What?” It’s not gonna be, ”Sam, get me the salt and the gun.” It’s gonna be, ”Sam, throw me my walker!”
TV Guide Magazine: Where does Season 7 start?
Ackles: It’s a direct pick-up from where we left off [in May]. Castiel [Misha Collins] looks at Sam and Dean and tells them that they’re essentially ants in the scheme of things. Now that he’s God, he has no need for them and to stay out of his way… When they track Cas down, they realize that when he took in all those monsters souls from purgatory, there were much older things that got into him as well. There’s a new, basically unknown, enemy in the world. It’s something that the guys have never dealt with.
TV Guide Magazine: That doesn’t sound good.
Ackles: No. [laughs] We’re going to start taking things away from Sam and Dean that they’ve relied on in their hunter life. There’s no lore to help them out and no book to tell them what to do. Bobby [Jim Beaver] throws his hands in the air. At one point they might even have to stash the Impala, because it’s too recognizable. The lead problem this year, is that all their little tricks that they’ve used to exist, credit card fraud and gambling, those are ways for this evil to track them down. It poses a bit of a challenge for the boys. They throw everything they can at Sam and Dean and they have to wriggle their way out.
TVGuide Magazine: We know Crowley [Mark A. Sheppard] is back. What’s the King of Hell up to?
Ackles: He’s been hiding from Cas, who was his partner. There is a little ”I’ll help you if you help me” going on.
TVGuide Magazine: Who else is back?
Ackles: Death [Julian Richings] is in the season opener. He’s the one that gives Sam and Dean the information they need about Cas and the new evil that will loom over the guys for the first half of the season. There’s more than one. They could be anywhere. They don’t only want to kill the brothers, they want to take over the planet.
TV Guide Magazine: So the boys have to save the world again?
Ackles: Yes, they’re essentially going to have to save the world again.
TV Guide Magazine: Isn’t Sam still struggling with the breakdown of the wall in his brain that kept away his memories from Hell?
Ackles: Definitely. He’s getting these flashbacks from Hell now that the wall that Death built is crumbling. There are visions and hauntings. It’s almost like he has to overcome a drug problem. Dean and Bobby are very concerned because he checks out every now and then.
TV Guide Magazine: Now that Dean is single again, will he go back to being catnip for the ladies?
Ackles: Well, in one episode I do walk into a bar and hit on a waitress and say how it’s been a long time! I don’t know that there’s going to be a lot of room for that. [Laughs]
TV Guide Magazine: You’re directing your second episode. When will it air and was it easier this time around?
Ackles: It will air third [October 7] It was much more challenging than last year. There was a lot of story going on. And flashbacks. [This time] it’s a one-off. Sam takes off on his own. He catches a case that he’s familiar with back from 1998. He was left home to do research while Dad and Dean were off hunting creatures, and he wound up running into the creatures himself. He had to make a very tough decision when he meets a girl and he’s smitten. Now he’s tracking her as a grown up. We have a really cool guest star playing her — Jewel Staite, who I’ve known since she was on Firefly.
TV Guide Magazine.com: We hear the hunter Jo [Alona Tal] is returning, despite her death back in Season 5.
Ackles: She’s brought back as kind of a materialized blast from the past when Dean is put on trial by an ancient Egyptian god who calls a few witnesses to the stand. It’s a heartwarming scene between the two of them.
