Fun fact: EVERY PERSON EVER has been on Supernatural. Well not really, but for a show that has been on the air for a decade it sure has seen its fair share of guest stars. Choosing just five was tougher than you’d think, but here they are in no particular order:
1. Julian Richings as “Death”
Only on a show like Supernatural can one of our favorite characters be Death. The way he casually strolled the windy streets of Chicago and “touched” a rude man who bumped into him was effortlessly badass, and his love of fast food cemented him as one of the best characters in the series. Unfortunately, we may have seen the last of him in Season 10 when Dean killed him, but as we all know, nobody stays dead on Supernatural.
2. Timothy Omundson as “Cain”
Cain! The father of murder, the first son, and the original bearer of the Mark of Cain. You would think that he would be an out of control crazed killer, but no, the Supernatural spin is that he is chillingly calm. He stays out of things until his final confrontation with Dean where he says that Dean will be just like him (you know, the whole killing his brother thing). He also might have better hair than Sam Winchester and his beard was beyond epic.
3. Colin Ford as “Young Sam Winchester”
He popped up a few times even more adorable than the last. And seriously, this kid looks more like young Jared Padalecki than actual Jared Padalecki, and he showed us a younger, more awkward version of our beloved Sammy.
4. Lauren Cohan as “Bela Talbot”
Yes, her character was super annoying because she kept messing with all of the plans and she shot Sam, but in the end, she was a very tragic woman with a hard past. Seeing her drive the boys nuts was pretty fun too. Now she is killing zombies over on The Walking Dead, but we still love her as a thief who gave zero f*cks.
5. Charisma Carpenter as “Maggie Stark” and James Marsters as “Don Stark”
Since they are in the same episode, I grouped these two Whedonverse alums together. They pop up (to the delight of Buffy and Angel fans everywhere) as a witchy married couple going through some problems at home. Seeing them together again was of course AMAZING! The Winchesters were pretty much powerless against these 800-year-old bickering witches. Sam and Dean’s usual weapons don’t work so they have to reason with the couple, and in the end, they made up in an adorably unhinged moment when they both admitted that they don’t really want to murder the other. Awww?
