Rachel Miner has nothing but love to say about working with CW’s ‘Supernatural’ crew. Best known as the bad-ass demon Meg from ‘Supernatural’ season’s five through eight, this beautiful and talented actress made her splash on the acting scene at Michelle Bauer on 'Guiding Light.' With three Young Artists Awards, an Emmy nod, and a Broadway role under her belt, Miner is enjoying a very full career.
Q. I believe that you were in seven episodes of Supernatural. It feels like you were a permanent fixture on the show. Tell your fans about your overall experience on the set.
A. Thank you! Yes, I had the fortune of getting to hang around for a good stretch in this "meat suit" of mine. Quite honestly, the people I had the opportunity to work with on ‘Supernatural’ (cast and crew) are some of the warmest, kindest human beings I have ever been around. There is a brand of magic they've forged there, which manifests itself at the top and exists through and through. They've created a pretty much BS, drama and tension free environment. The same cast and crew has been together through thick and thin, and there is a real sense of camaraderie, of family.
Q. Jeremy Carver hinted at future seasons past season nine at San Diego Comic Con. The show would not be the same without Meg. Do you think you’ll come back from the dead?
A. I really don't speculate about these things. I certainly have loved working on the show and would never turn away a revisit, but on the other hand, I feel so fulfilled by the experience overall and they gave Meg 2.0 such a perfect existence, that I have no covetous feeling that I must go back or be given more.
Q. Tell your fans about any projects that you have in the works.
A. I have a few things going on from the acting POV, but I also have been more inspired behind the camera as of late. I, perhaps superstitiously, don't love talking about things until they are fully realized, but I will definitely update as things progress!
Q. Tell me about your role in the film East of Acadia.
A. The film is through post and about to go into "the film festival stage." Part of the excitement of doing independent film is the complete unknown of what lies in-store for the film’s future.
In terms of the role, I really enjoyed playing Clair, a writer, who is putting together the pieces of an obscured past which haunts her. Clair is an intelligent, sensitive, contemplative character and in many respects the antitheses of most of the roles I have done. I don't think I can play a role without falling in love with something about her, even the most despicable people who I have portrayed had some aspect of them which I found beautiful.
