There is no question that Misha Collins is going to have a much more significant role on “Supernatural” season 9. When it comes to that, the promotion to series regular doesn’t lie. But just what can you expect from one of America’s most-beloved angels (who ironically shoots in Vancouver) in Castiel? Think somewhere along the lines of a new beginning, as he will be forced to learn just about everything that there is to learn about the world much like a baby learns to walk for the first time. It’s not going to be a very easy process at times, but we imagine that it will be more than entertaining in the end.
But there is one thing that Misha is never going to be able to undo or start from scratch with, regardless of however much he may want to: Castiel’s voice. This deep timbre is a calling card of the character, even though it is simultaneously probably something that he wishes that he could change almost every day of the week.
Speaking on the show’s season 8 DVD about this in a new video released by “Entertainment Tonight,” Collins explains now how he has a certain amount of regret over giving himself a challenge that he does not exactly appreciate doing now:
“I thought I should give him a really commanding, powerful voice — something I now regret because I’ve been doing it for six years and there are definitely times when I have to go home and drink hot lemon water and have a sore throat.”
As tough as it may be to talk with this part of his voice, we have a feeling that Misha will keep doing it so long as fans continue to love it. “Supernatural” is one of the few shows to keep a steady audience at this point in its run, even in spite of all of the frequent shifts on its schedule.
