In an interview with Zap2It, Misha Collins spoke about directing his first episode of Supernatural, Castiel's mission to restore Heaven and more. Here are highlights:
On how directing compares to acting: "It's funny, I have been working as an actor for some time now and I thought I knew much more about production than it turned out that I did. It was educational. And it was really enjoyable. Directing is a lot of fun but you have to be on your toes every minute. If you zone out for even a second, you'll miss something and things will get screwed up. And here's a little secret that I'm going to let out of the bag: That is not the case with acting. You can d*** around all you want on set as an actor and you can get away with it. But that is not the case with directing. As an actor, if you want to while shooting, you can run back to your trailer and take a nap. But you cannot do that while directing. So it was challenging and invigorating and I really enjoyed it."
On the rift between Sam and Dean in tonight's episode "Mother's Little Helper": "This is the episode that the rift between Sam and Dean is growing ever wider. They spend much of the episode apart from each other and they each follow their own story lines. Crowley is trying to enlist Dean to cooperate with him more and Sam is working on a case that turns out to have something big to do with their family's past."
On Castiel's storyline: "Cas' story line, as we ramp up towards the finale, becomes much more central to the show. He becomes a bigger central figure at the end of the season. I'm in the last three episodes and Cas' mission continues to be hunting down Metatron and restoring the heavenly order. The boys and Cas team up."
