SSN: How did you discover Supernatural?
Susan: A friend of mine mentioned it once but it did not sound like something I would be interested in since I don’t normally like scary shows so I didn’t try it. Then I got laid off after 26 years at the same company and while sitting at home one after that, I stumbled on the show and got hooked immediately without realizing it was the exact same show my friend tried to get me to watch months earlier. That was during Season 4.
SSN: What is your favorite Supernatural episode and why?
Susan: Boy that is a million dollar question! Obviously I love them all but if I had to choose just one I guess it would have to be The French Mistake. It had a little bit of everything, comedy, suspense, and I loved they brought Gen back. The overall playing themselves and poking fun was just out of the box awesome.
SSN: What is your least favorite Supernatural episode and why?
Susan: That is probably the most obvious one. It would have to be Bloodlines in Season 9 with them trying to make a spinoff of that storyline. I found it hard to get interested in any of the monster families. I did like Ennis and his storyline but that was the only one I could have been able to follow.
SSN: Who is your favorite villain?
Susan: I have to go with Crowley. He has been a constant throughout. I love his snarkiness and one always knows that Crowley never does anything that Crowley will not benefit from or is in his best interest somewhere down the road.
SSN: How do you promote Supernatural?
Susan: I join in any polls that represent our actors, characters, cast, crew, etc. I have stayed up and practically wore out a keyboard when voting the PCAs. I post on Facebook and Twitter almost everyday. I attend Conventions and post while I am there and share my photo ops on my Facebook and Twitter pages. I wear one of 14-15 T-shirts I own whenever I go out shopping. I join in fund raisers for different charities and actors interests (banner flyover, Stageit concerts, special recognition projects, etc.).
I have also coordinated a Danneel and Genevieve Appreciation Books project through Facebook and Twitter. People joined the FB page and submitted their letters (handwritten, typed, comments through emails), CDs, and creative letters snail mailed to me then I printed them on pretty paper or for emails, I created pages with the short messages on in different designs on a page. I also created a pdf of the entire book and burned a cd for each lady so if they chose to take it with them or download a copy to a laptop or iPad to take with them to share, they could. I took the completed books with me to Vancouver 2014 convention and presented the books to each of the guys during my J2 photo op and had them hold the books so I could post that on the FB page for those that contributed to see they got the books. (The page to view the PDFs is here.)
SSN: Do you prefer one of the brothers to the other? If so, which one?
Susan: I do love both the brothers and think they are equally talented but I am a Dean girl at heart. It’s hard to not love both of them with the different aspects and style they both bring to the show but I have always been one of those gals that is drawn to the bad boys and you don’t get much more badass then Dean Winchester.
SSN: If you could be in ANY Supernatural episode, which would you choose and why?
Susan: Another tough to choose question but “Larp and the Real Girl” looked like it would have been fun to be in and I always loved Charlie’s character. I’ve never done larping but it does look like fun. I have a t-shirt that says “One Does Not Simply Walk Into Moondoor” just because I enjoyed that storyline so much.
SSN: What one character would you love to see back on Supernatural?
Susan: I would love for them to find a way to bring John back. There is just so much left unsaid between him and the boys and they just never had any real closure. I always felt John’s character was killed off way too soon. I realize Jeffrey Dean Morgan had other commitments but if they had given him a bigger part to play, he might have been able to stay longer.
SSN: How do you want the show to end?
Susan: As much as I would hate for it to end, I think the only way it can is if the boys both die together. I would hate to leave it open where someone else could pick up the story using other actors to continue on. Ideally, I would love for them both to get out of the life, find wives, and have kids living an apple pie life to a ripe old age.
SSN: What other TV shows do you watch religiously?
Susan: My other guilty pleasures are: Arrow, Flash, SOA, Under the Dome, Scandal, Blacklist, The 100, NCIS Los Angeles, Hawaii, Bluebloods, and some reality shows like The Voice, The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, when they are airing.
