Fresh off his European vacation, Julian LeBlanc took time out to chat about his guest role in ‘Supernatural’s season finale called ‘Do You Believe in Miracles?’ This up and coming young actor is best known for his roles such playing a villain in R.L. Stine's 'The Haunting Hour,' the thriller short 'Sunday's Child,' drama film 'The Scarf,' and guest spots in the TV series 'Hellcats.' LeBlanc spreads his talent and time among acting, producing, and even teaching acting for kids and teens at Shoreline Actors Academy.
Q. How did the cast and crew welcome you to the set?
A. Thank you so much. Being a part of "Supernatural" fandom isn't a bad feeling at all. It's pretty sweet! The cast and crew were very welcoming. As soon as I arrived on set, I was greeted with professionalism and respect. I was then brought to my trailer where I was able to prep for my role and socialize with some of the other actors. It was apparent from the start that every single person working on this show loves what they do!
Q. Being that it was the season finale how was the mood on the set?
A. The energy on set was palpable and indescribable, you could literally feel it. Everyone was extremely focused and efficiently doing their job. As an actor in the season finale of such a reputable long-running show, I'm not going to lie, I was freaking out a little bit (in a good way). But I was able to keep it together to play my character! LOL!
Q. Tell your fans about ‘Ace on Fire,’ and any other projects that you have in the works.
A. Sure. ‘Ace on Fire’ is a dramatic crime feature film I shot last year. I played the role of Jessie, a bartender who's looking to move up the corporate ladder and gain favor with the movie's protagonist, Ace. He's doing everything he can to be someone important and I think that's something everybody can relate to (you know, trying to make something of yourself). I am gonna be shooting another project called ‘Heart of Dance’ soon which is a dance family drama. I will be playing a dancer named Thomas. I have other things in the works too, but I'm not able to talk about them just yet!
Q. Your Facebook that reads “actor/producer/teacher.” Tell us more.
A. Yes, that's right. I teach acting for kids and teens at Shoreline Actors Academy, and I'm Associate Artistic Director of the school. It's astounding how much I have learned through my teaching journey! Young actors have a knack for just being in the moment and not worrying about anything else, it's inspiring to see! As for producing, I executive produced (and acted in) my first short film a few years ago called ‘Sunday's Child.’ It's a fun thriller about a psychotic babysitter with a hidden past. I'm really proud of it, it's still getting out there and I'm already developing (along with my producing partners) film #2!
Q. If you were a baseball player, what would your walk up song be?
A. My walk up song would be ‘Let It Rock’ by Kevin Rudolf featuring Lil Wayne. It always has a way of making me feel invincible and ready to rock! I would also say anything by Technotronic. I have a soft spot for the 90s!
