Supernatural fans know all too well what happens to their favorite guest characters on the show. Kim Rhodes admitted that she is getting to the point in her role as the badass sheriff where she immediately skips to the end of each script to make sure her character is not dead. Besides Supernatural, this amazing Portland born actress is best known for her roles in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, the film Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike, and not hew new role in USA’s promising new hit show Colony alongside Josh Holloway that airs on USA Network Wednesdays at 10 ET/9 CT. Catch up with Kim in the upcoming Supernatural episode “Don’t You Forget About Me” airing Feb 3, 2016.
Q. Social media lit up with excitement when fans heard that you will be returning to Supernatural in an upcoming episode. Are you aware of how nervous the fandom is about this?
A. “Are you kidding me? Welcome to my life! The first thing I do when I get a script now is flip to the end and see what my last scene is. And if there’s the phrase, “She dies,” anywhere included– It’s a matter of time, but I wouldn’t tell you how much time even if I knew.”
Q. Tell your fans about role as Rachel in USA’s hot new series Colony.
A. “Rachel is, no offense to Jody, the most badass woman I have ever been privileged to play. She is a full-on warrior and an underground medic. So she has a big, fucking gun and a lot of empathy. But she is hard core, as required by the world she inhabits and the job she does now.”
Q. Your fundraising campaign “Wayward Daughters” with Briana Buckmaster is so wonderful. You are an inspiration to women young and young at heart. How do you two come up with the idea?
A. “It wasn’t me. It started as a fun, silly fantasy for a spinoff, but transformed into so much more. The fans started responding about WHY they wanted a Wayward Daughters spinoff and the strength of their message became much more important than petitioning for a job. It became about the power of women and positivity and, as Brianna always says, “Having each others’ backs.” We all fall, but WD is about sisters and daughters and mothers and wives and men who HAVE sisters and daughters and mothers and wives bringing each other back up.”
Q. I speak for many fans when I say that there needs to be a Supernatural spin off starring Sheriff Jody Mills and Sheriff Donna Hanscum. Two badass lady sheriffs what double as “hunters.” What would you call the series if our wishes came true?
A. “Wicked Tarts. It has been discussed. We have written scenes. And annoyed EVERYONE with them.”
