10 Things You Never Knew About ‘Supernatural’—Straight from Alexander Calvert

1. All I need to do each day to help me get into character as Jack is glance down at my old man/preschool style velcro sneakers.
2. We are fortunate enough to shoot in Vancouver, British Columbia, which means we get to visit these beautiful locations throughout the province and work with our amazing crew in sun, rain, and—most recently—snow.
3. In our latest episode “Good Intentions,” I’m lucky enough to work with Samantha Smith and Jim Beaver. Everything we shot for this episode was in the pouring rain, and pretty much took place in a mud pit. I felt like we were shooting the sequel to Apocalypse Now.
4. On Supernatural, Jack and the boys mostly eat from fast food burger joints since we are always on the road, but in real life I have recently become obsessed with Chef’s Table.
5. One of my favorite characters as a teenager was Joe Pesci’s “Tommy DeVito” in Goodfellas. So playing Jack has been fun because he is the polar opposite of that.
6. My favorite location we shot at during season 13 was the abandoned and decaying ferry in episode 9, “The Bad Place.” Our director, Phil Sgriccia, was able to get an amazing one-shot sequence taken from a drone of all us running into the ferry.
7. Because of the fast pace of the show, the boys and Jack rarely have downtime to read because they are fighting demons or stabbing someone with an angel blade. Whereas, in real life, I always have a book or two in my backpack.
8. The best part of being on Supernatural has been seeing incredible community of fans that support not only the show, but each other.
9. I joked on Twitter that Jack was listening to Lil Uzi Vert’s “XO Tour Llif3,” but at this point I think he’s more into Tame Impala.
10. My dream for Supernatural would be an episode that we could shoot in New Orleans. Having visited there, I feel the history and lore of city would match the show perfectly.

11. A great thing about playing Jack is his constant dedication to the things that matter most to him. Family, loyalty, and Nougat.

Alexander Calvert added to 2018 Supernatural conventions

Fans of nougat-loving Jack will be happy to know that Alexander Calvert will be at more Creation Ent. Supernatural conventions in 2018.

Creation Ent. announced on Feb. 7 that there will be more chances to see the nougat-loving Jack in person. Alexander Calvert has been added to more 2018 Supernatural conventions, including an event in Canada and in the United Kingdom. While the website hasn’t been updated yet, it will be very soon.

This is an excellent chance to see the newest and youngest member of the onscreen SPNFamily. He’ll join the main three stars and a handful of actors and actresses who play both loved and despised characters. Just recently, David Haydn-Jones and Briana Buckmaster were added to cons coming up.

So far, Calvert has been added to Vancouver, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Denver, Las Vegas, Indianapolis and the United Kingdom convention. There will likely be both autograph and photo opportunities, just like there are with all the rest.

Many fans are hoping that he’ll be added to the roster for many more. It will all depend on his filming schedule and other commitments, but Creation has admitted that they’re trying to get him to at least New Jersey. Fans have offered money and cookies to make it possible.

According to SPN Hunters’ previous list of 2018 Supernatural conventions, Las Vegas is the next con, which Calvert will attend. It’s on Feb. 22-25 and there is still time to get your tickets. After that, #SPNUK will be the next event you can see him at, which is in May.
