I’ve had the great opportunity to interview Jared and the cast of Supernatural many times over the years.
In 2018, at the San Diego comic-con, I decided to ask Jared what his "nerd thing" was.
Jared responded with a love for Star Wars books and the lore contained.
Chatting a bit more, I discovered that his favorite author is this realm of novels was Timothy Zahn. An award-winning author, known for creating the character Thrawn and many beloved Star Wars novels.
I filed away that info for 10 months, then, seeing that we would have a chance to speak with Jared and the cast once again. I began tracking down a way to make a request of author Timothy Zahn.
Finding him to be receptive and a fan of the Supernatural show, I worked with schedules and opportunity to make some magic happen.
Luckily Mr. Zahn’s signing schedule had the perfect window to make something happen.
From there on out, I just stood on the interview carpet and waited to bring a fan experience to someone that couldn’t have his own. It was a fun memory for all and I think anyone that’s met Jared would agree that he deserves it.
