'Supernatural' star Jared Padalecki gets surprised with his own fan moment

'Supernatural' star Jared Padalecki gets surprised with his own fan moment

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.
