Supernatural actor Misha Collins came out as bisexual during Creation Entertainment’s Supernatural Official Convention last Saturday. The 47-year-old actor, best known for his role as Castiel on CW’s Supernatural, said during the Q&A with the audience, “How many of you would consider yourself introverts? How many extroverts? And how many bisexuals? I’m all three.”
Collins then proceeded to joke that it would have been “weird” if he only asked the audience his last question and not added the others. “See, it would have been weird if I just said: ‘By a show of hands, how many bisexuals are in the audience?’ But I’d rather do it as a questionnaire, that’s more socially acceptable.”
Watch the moment below:
Having said all that, are you a fan of Supernatural, guys? If you don’t know what that is, Supernatural was a long-running TV show by CW about the demon-hunting brothers named Sam (played by actor Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (played by actor Jensen Ackles). And of course, because there were demons, it followed that there were also angels in the show and there was one particular angel highlighted all throughout, and his name is Castiel (the character played by actor Misha Collins).
There was a total of 15 seasons, which ran from September 2005 to November 2020, though Cas first appeared in season 4.
Yep, it’s there where I first saw him, I was hooked on the said show because of its story, and the acting of the main characters, but most importantly, I particularly loved the interaction between Dean and Cas. I have actually been shipping the two of them since then (please note that I wasn’t the only one, a lot of fans were), and as the last season approaches its end, reports said that Cas came out as gay.
I have yet to watch seasons 14 and 15, but reportedly, Cas confessed to Dean. He said, “You’re the most caring man on earth, you are the most selfless, loving human being I will ever know.” He added, “Knowing you has changed me, because you cared. I cared. I cared about you… I cared about the whole world, because of you. Dean, I love you.”
Anyway, apart from being an actor, Misha Collins is also an author. He has a poetry collection out called Some Things I Still Can’t Tell You though if you heard Collins’ voice already you might want to buy its audiobook version instead.
Collins is the co-founder of Random Acts, a nonprofit organization that funds acts of kindness. It was created in 2010 to “inspire kindness in Haiti and beyond.” Read more about it here.
He married Victoria Vantoch in October 2001. They have two kids, a son named West and a daughter named Maison.
Update: On April 26, 2022, Misha Collins apologized through his Instagram account for “misspeaking this weekend” and clarified that he is straight. See his full statement below:
