2015/11/25 ‘Supernatural’s Matt Cohen chats family and being back on set

Supernatural fans caught their breath when Sam Winchester awoke to none other than Young John Winchester at the wheel of the Impala.

This South Florida raised actor is best known for his roles on Supernatural, Criminal Minds, The OC, NCIS: LA, and the filmography goes on.

Q. Supernatural fans were thrilled when Sam woke up to find you at the wheel of the Impala. As far as fans are concerned, you can appear in the brother’s visions ANY time! What was it like back on the set? Any shenanigans?

A: “It was a real whirlwind being back there only because I was coming off of an all-nighter on the set of How to Get Away with Murder and then shooting all day on “SPN” and going straight to a SPN Convention. I was only in Vancouver 19 hours from the time I touched down, went through customs and permitting, did a wardrobe fitting, hair and makeup, paperwork and contracts, rehearsal, shooting, dinner, sleep and back to the airport. There were sadly no shenanigans because there simply wasn’t enough time to screw around and make quality TV. I loved being back. Everyone everywhere knows that SPN is my family. I would work on that show for free and without lines just to make an appearance for the fans. It is all love for the fans doing what we do on that show and it is because of the love in return that we are still around 11 seasons later.” (more…)

While the star of the latest “Supernatural” episode — “Baby” — was undoubtedly the Impala, there was one familiar face that surely delighted longtime fans of the series.

After last appearing in Season 5, Matt Cohen returned as the younger version of John Winchester, appearing in a dream Sam (Jared Padalecki) was having. For Padalecki, having Cohen back on set was a fun little family reunion, even if only for a scene.

“I love Matt. ‘Supernatural’ is such a unique show because even though he hasn’t been on the show in five years, we still see each other several times a year,” the actor tells Zap2it and a group of outlets on the “Supernatural” set. “He’s a buddy, he just became a dad. Most of the time when they call cut, we’d be like, ‘So what’s going on? How’s the baby? How’s the wife?’” (more…)
