May’s MCM London has a heavenly new addition to its guest list in the shape of Misha Collins, best known for playing the angel Castiel on long-running CW show Supernatural.

Making his debut in Season 4 episode ‘Lazarus Rising’, the trench coat-wearing Castiel quickly became a fan fave, becoming a series regular in Seasons 5 and 6. The next two seasons saw Castiel appear as a special guest star – for reasons that we’re not going to get into here, because spoilers! – but Misha Collins’ much-loved angel returned to the main cast in Season 9 of the dark fantasy and has stayed there ever since.

Castiel’s literal-minded, socially awkward demeanour belies his badass fighting skills – as various Supernatural baddies find out to their cost, it’s really not a good idea to make Castiel angry. Collins’ character frequently helps Dean and Sam Winchester in their battles, although he can be a distinctly dangerous ally at times …and all that flirting with the demonic Meg definitely wasn’t orthodox!

In addition to starring as Castiel, Misha Collins has appeared in show such as Nip/Tuck, 24, Charmed, CSI, NCIS and ER.
