Robbins casts her spell in Supernatural
Bermudian actor Jordan Claire Robbins is set to bewitch audiences this week on TV show Supernatural.
Ms Robbins will guest star as a witch on Thursday’s episode of the hit US production.
She said yesterday: “When I was offered the opportunity to come on board for the show, I was very excited.
“It is in its thirteenth season and the fanbase is very dedicated and passionate about the story.”
Ms Robbins said the experience was the best she had had and described the cast and crew of the show as a family.
She added: “The set had a very welcoming and positive energy.
“The director, Amanda Tapping, has also acted for many years and this showed through in her ability to communicate effectively with me and the other actors on the show.
“It was a very collaborative experience and she valued the ideas we brought to the table while also bringing the writers’ vision to life.”
Supernatural follows the adventures of brothers Dean and Sam Winchester as they hunt dangerous supernatural creatures.
An average of 2.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the show last season and the series has inspired comic books, an animated series and several novels.
Ms Robbins said: “The leads of the show, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, were incredibly fun to work with and made me feel very comfortable throughout the shoot.”
The actor, who went to university in Toronto, moved in January last year to Vancouver, where Supernatural and many other TV shows are filmed.
Ms Robbins is now back in Toronto to work on another television project, but she could not yet give details.
She added: “In between my shooting dates, I love to pop home for visits and am so grateful for all of the support and encouragement from everyone back at home.”
Ms Robbins’s love of performing was nurtured in Bermuda, where she studied musical theatre at Saltus Grammar School.
She left the island in 2008 after graduating but continued to pursue her acting dreams while she studied at the University of Toronto.
Ms Robbins signed up with the Characters Talent Agency in 2014 in an attempt to win film and television roles.
Ms Robbins said: “I had roles on several TV shows such as 12 Monkeys and Man Seeking Woman, and filmed a movie called Anon, directed and written by Andrew Niccol that will be released on Netflix this year.
“I also produced and co-starred in a short film that I wrote, entitled Driver Is Arriving Now.
“It was an incredible experience to see something I wrote come to life and to have a creative hand in the film beyond acting in it.”
Ms Robbins’s episode of Supernatural will air on Thursday at 9pm on The CW network.
