As co-stars on The CW’s hit drama Supernatural, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have had a long time to get to know each other. Time, however, wasn’t a luxury they had when they were first cast in the role of the Winchester brothers. At a press event, the two of them told us how they discovered early on how crucial their chemistry was to the show, and how they worked to make it happen.

Supernatural has been known to put its characters in plenty of interesting — and sometimes totally bizarre — situations. For example, the Winchester brothers recently became animated characters in a Scooby Doo adventure. That’s OK with Jensen Ackles, who told us that as long as the story makes sense, he’s happy to do whatever the writers ask of him. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jensen Ackles)
If you keep an eye on the credits for most long-running TV shows, you’ll usually see the stars’ names listed as executive producers. That’s because, after being on a show for several years, many stars decide they want more input into their characters and storylines, so they negotiate that into their deals. But even though Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have been doing “Supernatural” for 13 seasons, neither one has asked to become a producer. At a press event, Padalecki told us the reason why.

The longer you do something, the more you learn, right? So, when it comes to Supernatural, which is now in its astonishing 13th season, Jared Padalecki must be a genius! We talked to Padalecki and asked if, over the course of the show, he’s learned any special skills. (Click on the media bar below to hear Jared Padalecki)
You can see Padalecki put those skills to when Supernatural returns for season 14, Thursday October 18 on The CW.
