15 Guest Stars on Supernatural Before They Were Famous

15 Guest Stars on Supernatural Before They Were Famous

There are now many actors who have become household names. Many of these got their start or at least had a chance to guest star in Supernatural. Here are 15 you’ve possibly forgotten from over the years.

How many guest stars from Supernatural have now become household names? You’ll be surprised to hear that many actors, especially on TV shows, started out with guest star roles on the likes of Supernatural, Charmed, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is a chance to look at back the ones that ran into Sam and Dean Winchester and have now made themselves known in households around the world.

Some of these are guest stars you may have overlooked or not realized at the time. Others you’ve known but didn’t realize this was where they started out. Some of these names didn’t quite get started on the series but did appear in the series before they became household names. However, most of them had the series as one of their first guest spots on TV before moving onto bigger things. Two of them are technically not guest stars, either, but series regulars who were in for a short period of time!

How many of these 15 guest stars do you remember from their time on Supernatural before they were famous? Don’t forget to let us know when you get through to the end.

Sterling K. Brown

Let’s start with good ole Gordon Walker. I remembered Sterling K. Brown in Army Wives before Supernatural. However, he came across the Winchesters first. In 2006, he took on the role of rogue hunter Gordon, who had lost a sister due to vampires and had a grudge against every single one of them. It didn’t matter if the vampires lived off animal blood or human blood. They were creatures and they needed to be killed.

This ended up with Gordon making an enemy of the Winchesters. Well, actually it was the other way around. Sam and Dean were willing to just forget about Gordon, but he was the one that kept showing up like a bad penny. Eventually, Gordon was taken down by the creature he hated the most: vampires. He became one and was killed by Sam.

Since his time on Supernatural, he became the only male “Army wife” in Army Wives. He was Roland Burton in the series, married to a high-ranking and determined female officer. As a psychiatrist, he helped many who came into the hospital and also treated a number of the officers and soldiers his wife knew—and spouses of his friends. He also helped deliver twins in the very first season.

He has since taken on the role of Randall Pearson, the child left at a fire station and adopted by the Pearsons, in This Is Us. This is the series he’s fully made himself a household name. We love seeing him as a good guy rather than a bad guy.

Katie Cassidy

Katie Cassidy is best known for her role of Laurel Lance in Arrow now, but she got her start in Supernatural. Sure, she’d had small roles before her time on the series but it was as the demon Ruby that she helped to get her name out there.

Ruby was the demon we weren’t sure whether we could trust or not. She suddenly showed up in Supernatural Season 3 (becoming the first of only two females to get series regular credit in the series) killing demons and offering Sam help. She promised to save Dean from Hell, only to later make it clear that she couldn’t help after all. After the third season finale, Cassidy left the role and Genevieve Cortese Padalecki took on the role.

However, Cassidy went onto Harper’s Island, which would also star Supernatural guest star Jim Beaver. She would also guest star in Melrose Place, Gossip Girl, and New Girl, as well as landing one of the lead roles in the A Nightmare on Elm Street reboot attempt.

It’s Arrow where she’s become a household name—and she now films just next door to her old filming location. She’s Laurel Lance/Black Canary/Black Siren in the series and has also shown up in Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash.

Lauren Cohan

The second and only other female to get a series regular credit on the series is Lauren Cohan and one of the earliest works was Supernatural. However, you’ll know her now in many other shows, including The Vampire Diaries and The Walking Dead. She has certainly become a household name since starting out with Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

Cohan was Bela Talbot in the series, a woman who has received mixed reviews from the fans. While she knew all about the supernatural creatures and lore, she used it for her own personal gain. She’d acquired artifacts to sell to the highest bidder. The only thing to stop her selling one on was by being affected by it in some way. This happened on two occasions in Supernatural Season 3.

Since starring in Supernatural, she’s moved onto bigger things. Her first was a guest star role in The Vampire Diaries, as Rose. She then moved onto Chuck, and then eventually onto The Walking Dead, where she’s played Maggie Greene and become a household name. She has also snapped up movie roles, playing Martha Wayne in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

While she hasn’t signed a contract for the ninth season, she is reportedly returning. However, she is also working on a midseason show for ABC called Whisky Cavalier. She is also in the movie Mile 22.

Cory Monteith

The late actor appeared in Supernatural Season 1. It’s one of those blink-and-you-miss-it moments in a way. In the second episode of the series, he was in the tent when the wendigo was outside ravaging the tent. He was one of the unfortunate victims. Why? Well, his character wasn’t attached to the main guest stars for the episode. Go figure!

Anyway, Cory Monteith went on to land a show of his own. Like you need any introduction to Finn in Glee. He was the football player who wanted to sing, even if joining the glee club meant being a geek.

Before Glee and after Supernatural, the Canadian actor also guest starred in an episode of Smallville and played Kahill in Final Destination 3 (you know, the one with the killer rollercoaster and tanning beds?) In 2007, he also landed the role of Charlie Tanner in Kyle XY and was Gunnar in 10 episodes of Kaya.

He had two projects after Glee, both released posthumously. Cory died on July 13, 2013 from a drug overdose. He’d suffered with addiction and mental health problems for a number of years and had received help before the accidental overdose. He was mourned by friends and fans, with a focus on his character’s off-screen death to give everyone a chance to publically grieve.

Chicago Fire Season 7 Finale Review I am Not Leaving You

Chicago Fire Season 7 Finale Review I am Not Leaving You

If nothing else, Chicago Fire Season 7 Episode 7, “What Will Define You,” gives Taylor Kinney a chance to show off some powerful skill as we have a chance to dig a little deeper into his character.

Severide’s relationship with his father has always been complicated, to say the least, and losing him so suddenly only shows that further. He’s heartbroken, angry, and full of guilt, especially considering their last conversation and the way Benny came through for his son anyway.

In a way that seems very fitting with his character, Severide is laser-focused on getting the details handled and moving on. One detail that’s important is his father’s medal, which Benny wanted to be buried with. But, Benny was Benny, and there’s no telling which one of his exes might have it.

It’s sweet how much Stella puts into finding that medal and how much the others are willing to help with that mission. I’m also really appreciating the positivity in Stella and Kelly’s relationship. This is a difficult time for Kelly, and Stella is showing exactly the patience and compassion he needs.

In return, Kelly shows his appreciation for her — it’s a heck of an emotional episode, but when she hands him that medal after he was certain it wouldn’t be found (it turns out his sister had it all along), it’s as though she fixed everything in his world.

Equally touching is the way Boden is able to advocate for Severide and for the funeral he believes his father deserves. Watching the firetrucks pull up as they walk out with the casket — it’s enough to give anyone goosebumps.

We talk a lot about how Firehouse 51 is a family, but what this shows is that the firefighter community is a family, and it’s pretty remarkable how they can come through for one another.

Chicago Fire Season 7 Finale Review I am Not Leaving You

Meanwhile, Brett is continuing a pattern of getting involved in her patient’s lives. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but it feels a little… contrived. This was a characteristic we became used to from Gabby, and honestly, it’s one we’ve gotten used to from the other characters as well.

Everyone is willing to go above and beyond, but there’s something that feels a little off in Brett’s involvement with the texting teenager. Her compassion is nice, though, and she addresses her conflicting feelings by visiting the new chaplain — which seems to bring on some different kinds of feelings.

I wish we could see Brett and Antonio get back together, but if that’s not possible, I’m on board with someone new for Brett, and the new chaplain definitely seems like he’s going to have a presence.

The texting teenager does get quite the lesson, and it makes for a useful storyline. We’re used to seeing stories of drunk drivers causing accidents on television, but this is a problem that, at least from what I’ve seen, isn’t addressed quite as often.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 Recap: June is Unstoppable!

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 Recap: June is Unstoppable!

Spoiler alert: for watching The Handmaid’s Tale 3

An uplifting climax, full of tear-jerking moments and heroic last stands. But how much further can June go in her fight against the evil men of Gilead?

When Mayday was introduced in season one, it was a shady resistance June wanted to turn to for help. We glimpsed only the skinniest branches of the organisation and assumed that there was some central hub somewhere, a powerful figure running the show. But in this season three finale, we learn that Mayday isn’t some grand plan or a hierarchy of rebels – it’s anyone who wants to damage Gilead. Right now, Mayday is a handmaid and two Marthas in Commander Lawrence’s kitchen. June has become Mayday – and suddenly the show’s decision to name ‘Offred’ June feels a wee bit on the nose.

Within moments, June has resorted to keeping her plan to rescue 52 children on track with the gun that’s been waiting patiently to become a plot point since episode 11. She’s convinced that ruthlessness is how the men of Gilead won, and that victory goes not to who is right, but to whoever has the hardest heart. These days June’s heart is hard enough to threaten a frightened child with a gun, and stand firm against Lawrence’s final spasms of fragile masculinity (“You’re still in my house, young lady!”). She still believes all her suffering and all her crimes must amount to something, even if Lawrence insists that “the universe doesn’t have a balance sheet”. She’s going to rescue those kids if it kills her and everyone else involved in the plan – including Rita and Janine.

Their route to the airport intentionally mirrors the woods in which June had Hannah torn from her arms. This time, she is determined not to be helpless, and no one will stop these children from reaching safety, especially not one solitary Eye guarding the airport. That’s when June realises it won’t be her ruthlessness that saves the day – it will be her selflessness. Her drive to hurt Gilead may have begun as revenge, but here we see her realise a greater purpose: she wants to save anyone in danger in Gilead. She wants to bring the whole thing down, and she will give her life to do so – which, for as long as she is alive at least, makes her unstoppable.

This leads to a rather contrived scene where Janine and a group of Marthas join June in her heroic last stand and throw a bunch of rocks at the Eye, when June could surely have just shot him. But we’ll let the show get away with it, for the image of women standing together in the face of oppression is a powerful one. Better still was June’s handmaid friends searching the woods for her after she is shot and carrying her to safety, walking in their customary two-by-two formation, with a gravely injured insurrectionist held between them. The Martha network has done their bit – season four is surely time for the handmaid network to rise, as June vows to lead ‘her people’ to the land of milk and honey (or, well, Canada). Season three has now truly turned June into a freedom fighter, and it’ll be fascinating to see just how far she will be go in the fight against Gilead.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 Recap: June is Unstoppable!

The episode’s most uplifting moment was the arrival of the children in Canada, greeted by a welcoming committee of Moira, Luke and Emily. Kiki/Rebecca being reunited with her father was a shamefully manipulative twist but we loved it, and Rita sinking to the ground as she realised her freedom was movingly played by Amanda Brugel, especially that simple, powerful “hi” she shared with Emily. No more “blessed be the fruit” for her. But it was a sad ending for Luke as he watched the plane door, so desperate to see Hannah emerge that even we began to hope that, somehow, maybe she would.

Elsewhere, in a move that will surprise precisely no one, the Waterfords’ separation has gone nasty, with Fred turning in Serena for arranging June’s rape by forcing Nick to impregnate her. Hearing Serena’s crime termed “sexual slavery” is shocking and, of course, completely accurate. But when you’re immersed in the world of Gilead, as we have been for three seasons now, it’s easy to forget that these crimes have names out in the real world. Seeing Serena confronted with hers and realising the truth of it was, frankly, glorious.

The Handmaid’s Tale Season 3 Recap: June is Unstoppable!

The sound of music

Into Dust by Mazzy Star plays as the handmaids carry June to safety, risking themselves in the process. The song seems more like the sort of thing that would accompany a poignant character death, but it instead punctuates a rebirth for June – out of ruthlessness, and into solidarity. Long live the revolution.

Under his eye

• How handy that Rita – one of the few people whose testimony is enough to bring down the Waterfords – has landed in Canada just in time for the trial? It would be interesting to see in season four if Gilead has any spies in Canada who may wish to interfere in such a trial.

• Fred’s obfuscating in his deposition might have had the intention of downplaying his importance in Gilead, but his ego couldn’t resist implying his power anyway. What a petty, weak, monstrous man. Joseph Fiennes has done a marvellous job.

• Lawrence has decided to stay behind and ‘clean up his own mess’, but he has a long history of shying away from bravery, so we don’t expect him to bring down Gilead any time soon. That said, it was a big step for him to finally admit that much of the ‘mess’ that is Gilead is actually his fault, and no amount of effective economic strategy can justify it. His characterisation has been all over the place this season, but Bradley Whitford has been wonderful.

• That opening flashback was a timely reminder of the horrors of Gilead, back before everyone had become numb to such relentless atrocities. It’s nice to see how far June and Janine have come.
