Travis Wester @westerspace At the airport, getting ready to head to #NJcon! Bought a book about slaying dragons, I’m hoping it’s how-to manual.
Fangasm @FangasmSPN Very young fan: what’s your favorite monster? Chad: Cookie Monster. pic.twitter.com/3YbMdHofvz
* How did he create Ash? He read the sides and KNEW Ash was him. Unbuttoned his shirt for kripke in audition
* The instant fame of Fast and the Furious really threw Chad – they were all still kids making that film
* Fan: would you ever Larp? Chad: I’m LARPing right now. I’m a Larper!!
* A fan just gave Chad a box of graveyard dirt. Chad: “wow this is intense
* Fans thank Chad for interacting so much with us on twitter. Chad thanks us back. pic.twitter.com/NaG97320OV
* On set Jensen flips a switch on the camera to screw with the crew
* DJ says we have plenty more years for Spn to win PCAs.
Mary Dominiak @Bardicvoice Chad’s heaven? Being surrounded by family, friends, pets. And he wants answers! walk with dinosaurs. See Michael Jackson concert.
* “I’m going to be honest with you; I don’t keep up with the show.”
* Born to Be Wild was Chad’s first film, he was 16. Shot in Seattle.
* Chad tells tales on Jensen flipping camera switch to mess with cameraman, making suggestive motions to try breaking Chad on camera
* Crying on cue is pretty easy; just think of something sad. Fan asks if DJ is big hugger like Garth; DJ says yes, gives hug
Jace @Jace736 Alone on deserted island with one other celebrity: Richard Speight Jr because he’s a human GPS
* Says he turned down audition to Fast and Furious twice
* Asked if sensitivity to spirits runs in his family. Says his mom & sister watch Gost Adventures & he used spirit box in his basement
* Do characters he plays impact him: dark characters like I Spit On Your Grave are hard. Hard to let go of ticks etc
* During that question he says “could I be the Trickster” & @dicksp8jr came out “What the f@ck”
* Richard says Chad had more props than Carrot Top
Sonya @winchesterwoman Chad’s pick for another character from SPN to share his heaven would be @samanthajferris because he loves her

osric chau panel
@mainegirlwrites Also, just uploaded this lovely video 🙂 http://youtu.be/lRvP27ppzH0
@OsricChau talks about the challenges of working with @jarpad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdWqHpfHOZ4&noredirect=1 …
Marilyn @mcase1013 @OsricChau on stage. This is his first con! He’s a bit nervous, but doing great. http://twitpic.com/cnwq0w
* @OsricChau almost declined #Supernatural for a chance for a JJ Abrams pilot. http://twitpic.com/cnww6x
* @OsricChau giggles a lot. And he likes doing scenes with blood.
Adina @adinarj Cello scene was most difficult. He doesn’t play and it wasn’t in tune.
*”I don’t know if anyone knows what the writers are doing. I don’t even know if THEY know.”
* Talking about his mom. “Make sure you eat. Stay warm..” http://twitpic.com/cnwq9v
Fangasm @FangasmSPN The best thing about the show is the #SPNFamily pic.twitter.com/Lv78m4H5aZ
* They build in an hour extra shooting time because J2 and Misha are running around like idiots
* He rehearsed the scene with Crowley more than usual but it was only a few takes and @OsricChau wasn’t that happy with it.
* Right after this @OsricChau did a cartwheel onstage. pic.twitter.com/MQsRuvKEr5
* * Offered both the #spn role OR a JJAbrams pilot regular but couldn’t do both. Went for #spn and was best decision of his life
* Osric tries to describe @Mark_Sheppard and just keeps cracking up. Mark tells a lot of stories.
* Osric has stunt training that came in handy for the Halo movie he did. And when he had to outrun Jared 🙂
* Scene where Kevin loses his limbs, he was standing in a box in a foot of blood. Feet were red for 3 days
* Whenever they have water guns, Jared grabs one and starts shooting. Lol
* These questions about my own fandom (Pokemon) are so hard!” @OsricChau is a true fanboy pic.twitter.com/Jt3iEEFVpQ
* Talking about his longer hair. Crowley was his hair consultant. pic.twitter.com/40JwR3tUbb
* Osric plans on starting #spn season one and watching in order.
* Preparing @OsricChau for his first photo ops (while encouraging fans to grope him….) pic.twitter.com/kj2mjOsvAI
Jace @Jace736 Osric says he tries to be professional but they keep trying especially Jared
* What Pokemon would Kevin be? One of original 150 & water type because of intelligence
* Osric moved to Beijing in 2010 & did an indy project And he says he is critical of himself
* Osric says he was frustrated in the latest episode of SPN as he wasn’t feeling it. Had to practice the “sh&t” out of it
* Says he’d see a righteous suicide as a way for his character. He says death scenes are a lot of fun
* Osric had to change flight to audition for #superantural & therefore became most costly audition
* Mark will say that things don’t make sense for Crowley and asks to change script
* Says he isn’t picky with food but he misses those 2 foods. He doesn’t drink at all but misses them
Mary Dominiak @Bardicvoice Which version of Kevin have you enjoyed most? Osric: paranoid was pretty fun! Reaction to 1st script kinda meh; naive role familiar.
* Osric: one of least favorite things is to watch himself. Always sees things he should have done differently.
* Last episode aired, got to shoot Js with really powerful water gun!! Was a little gentler with Jensen … Let Jared have it!
* GreatEscapist: filming the “I’m dead!” Video: day was must frustrating one for him as actor. Rehearsed a lot, but wasn’t feeling it.
* When read GreatEscapist, said, “Finally! I die!” Then realized Kevin was in next scene, rescued. 🙂
* Visiting family in Vancouver, agent said should stay & audition for Kevin. Most expensive audition ever: cost $600 to change ticket!
* Osric says usually forgets whatever he did in previous scene shot; takes each scene on its own. Not foreshadow too much
* His favorite foods are a certain Chinese dumpling you could buy on street in Beijing at 10 for 50 cents, and Mongolian lamb skewers.
* * Most fun thing done on #Supernatural? Loved water gun. LOVED blood spatter in LittleSliceofKevin – more cannons on him than anyone
* Osric finds TV harder to do because you have to do so many things at once, and quickly; no time to find the moment, must make it
* Osric asked about the BBQ ribs thing, since Kevin had been Vegan; writers actually did talk about it, but kept meat in.
* Haircut at beginning of season because of Halo film. Osric wore wig; Bob Singer looked at him w wig on & off, threw in haircut line
* Tattoo scene makeup was part stencil, then brush. Thinks the illusion of tattooing itself was VFX.
* @dicksp8jr: Hey Supernatural fans, behold the circuit’s crappiest (& tiniest) backstage! NJ Con 2013! http://instagram.com/p/Y27lfjy8Nv/

@Gypmama: People love Kevin & want him to stick around.
Os’ mind was blown by the fandom
* Osric went to circus school growing up. His mom put him in EVERYTHING
* Os: Learn to run away. Most valuable skill. Learn to fight so you don’t need to fight
* Os nearly slips a spoiler with, “Now that his [Kevin] purpose is done…” Caught himself
* Jared up to his old foot in the crotch tricks w/ Os for the burger diner scene w/ Kevin, Dean, & Sam
* Osric says that @Mark_Sheppard is a great guy. He loves his kids more than they love themselves
* Osric: “I know I’m a walking stereotype because I LOVE doing martial arts!”
* Fav moment on set?
“First day on set. Jared was waiting for Gen to go into labor & he was sooooo different & nice

Winchester Daily @WinchesterDaily If he could be another character it would be Dean

* Garth-hug came from experience where DJ and friend both got swept into an uncomfortable, unexpected hug by a guy
* “SPN isn’t a professional working environment.” We screw around. On last day, got hammered at bar, got sick. Stayed awake all night.
* DJ felt really bad because Jensen had tons of dialogue, emotional scene, and DJ kept missing his few lines. #SouthernComfort
* DJ: was so sick & out of it, didn’t recognize Bob Singer. Introduced myself. Blew lines. Haven’t been back since. Garth may be dead! #NJCon
*DJ felt really bad because Jensen had tons of dialogue, emotional scene, and DJ kept missing his few lines
* … There are guys on the ground below us handing us stuff that we’re pretending to pull out of our pockets!”

@Gypmama DJ likes to sic SPN family on trolls that bug him on Twitter. He loves us
*DJ is ranting about Jared being handsome AND smart & hating it. Got drunk & loved him. Jared will be on the team too
* You can’t manipulate people with comedy. If a joke fails, you KNOW
* That was an awkward panel. I really want to like DJ but it was going in a weird direction
Adina @adinarj Per Richard, DJ is “the only man who can make @ChadLindberg look portly.” http://twitpic.com/cnxqxe

* DJ is pulling a @mattcohen4real and giving everyone in line hugs
* “Do not smoke pot when youkre young; you’ll forget stuff when you’re older.”

* DJ says Mr. Fizzles lives in his nightstand. A fan asked for a kiss from Mr. Fizzles

Jace @Jace736 DJ says comedy is hard & not sure why dramatic actors get all the accolades
* What would happen to Garth if he became disabled? Hunter retirement home or kill himself
