Grey Griffin has literally hundreds of credits to her name, including Kitana in Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms (we'll have the full interview to share with you soon). However, one of the most iconic has to be Daphne in the Scooby-Doo franchise, a role she also lent her voice to for a very special episode of Supernatural's thirteenth season: "Scoobynatural."
This episode saw Sam, Dean, and Castiel sucked into the animated world of Scooby-Doo, and hilarity followed (including Jensen Ackles' Dean Winchester crushing on Daphne in a big way).
When we recently had Grey on the phone, we took the opportunity to ask what that experience was like and got her reaction to the positive response from Supernatural fans. "I know! It’s so funny because I didn’t know that Misha Collins was in it. He was a dad at the school my children went to and I just thought of him as this dad there. Then, I remember seeing him in Supernatural and going, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s him!’ I had no idea because we recorded totally separately [Laughs]."
"It’s funny because they have these conventions and this really, really strong fan following. Right before the world shut down, I was in Las Vegas hugging hundreds of people at one of those Supernatural conventions because they invited Matthew [Lillard] and me to be a part of it," Grey continued. "I’m so honoured to be part of the universe and conventions with them as the fans are so wonderful and welcoming. It’s a tight-knit family, and I’m glad to be part of that family now."
Supernatural ended with its fifteenth season, but a spinoff - titled The Winchesters - is in the early stages of development at The CW. The show will focus on John and Mary Winchester, though Ackles is expected to lend his voice to the project as a narrator (he's also producing). It's unclear whether Jared Padalecki will factor into proceedings, though we're guessing he'll be included in some form.
