Misha’s undying love for his adorable son shall not go unseen [x]
This rumor is PARTIALLY CONFIRMED.
This rumor originates with a tumblr post from the ChiCon meet and greet.
Misha Collins was asked about a comment made by Ben Edlund regarding the resolution of a relationship on the show:
And [Misha] sorta rolled his eyes and said, C’mon, in the first few episodes, Dean’s running around Purgatory, chopping off heads, Where’s the angel, where’s the angel, you know, the guy I’m in love with?
Us: I DON’T REMEMBER DEAN SAYING THAT!!
Misha: He might as well have. You know, we know what it is, what’s going on. We don’t talk about it. The actors don’t, Jensen and I don’t. But we’re all perfectly aware of how the relationship is, the writers are completely aware of how it’s being written. It may be unspoken but that doesn’t mean it’s not there or not true.
In subsequent conventions, Misha has made other comments about Destiel. At ECCC 2013 he said,
“It’s a funny thing because we…don’t really talk about [Destiel] much….But I do think we all pay lip service to it. For instance, this I should not be saying, there was a line… where Jensen’s character…says ‘I love you’ to Castiel.” (Watch his entire discussion of Destiel at ECCC here, youtube video posted by seeker07.)
At NJCon 2013, Misha also said,
“I probably shouldn’t talk about it…. actually that’s probably the right answer,” and then, “There is clearly a very, very profound bond between them… there are a million different interpretations open…it’s a lot of things, it’s deep and meaningful… Is it love? Probably. What does that mean? It’s a million different things, I don’t know… At the very least it’s a complex relationship. One of them is….a celestial wavelength of intent. Which is obviously a difficult being to have a relationship with….It’s an intense relationship…They, they love each other, but it’s purely sexual.” (Watch Misha’s entire discussion of Destiel at NJCON 2013 here. Video by Heather Racicot)
Given the sources above, we can partially confirm this rumor. Misha Collins never says “Destiel is true,” but he does acknowledge a special relationship between the Dean and Castiel characters. (As always, if we’re missing a convention or quote from Misha regarding this topic, please let us know!)
- Anon asked specifically about what Misha said, and this post exclusively answers that question. This has no impact on a) what type of relationship Destiel is (sexual/romantic/otherwise, ymmv) or b) whether this means anything about the current or future “canonicity” of Destiel. Although as the actor playing Castiel he has unique insight into that character, he has no control over the direction of the storyline.
- Misha Collins
is a trollhas a flair for the dramatic, and some of the things he says at conventions should not be taken at face value.
- As lurea’s original report states, writer Ben Edlund’s quote about a “relationship on the show that fans like to speculate about will be resolved” may have been about a different show.
"There was a rumor going around tumblr that you were talking to a group of fans and you told them that you and Jensen and the writers were all aware of this love-connection between Dean and Castiel…did you really say this or did you just decide to troll the people you were talking to, shut down tumblr…" and at the end of Misha’s answer, he says, "But yes, I think that what I said was true, that I was right."
Which confirms what was said at the ChiCon meet and greet.
I can’t decide if he grumble because he has to do another take or because he bangs the impala (but I’ve my idea)
