Interview with the actor Osric Chau

Exclusive interview with the actor Osric Chau (Kevin Tran on SPN). He talks about working with Jensen, Jared, Lauren .. About his character and more.
1. What was your reaction when you were invited to participate in a supernatural series?

I was ecstatic. And that excitement continues to grow even now. The longer I've been on the show, the more excited I've been about it and a big reason for that are the fans so I have to start this interview by thanking everyone reading this. You make everyone working on the show love it as much as you do. Thank you! 
2. How did you prepare to play Kevin?

In my audition I did it a bit differently. I put glasses on and I wore my own version of what I thought Kevin would wear. I played him up way more "nerdy" than he ended up being which I am very happy for. But in essence, Kevin's the kind of person that has a thousand thoughts in his head at any point in time and that's what I do. When I do the scene I am trying to think of every possible piece of information that I know about what's going on in that scene and that's where Kevin's calculated jitteriness and anxiety comes from. 
3. What do you think of the story of your character?

Just like the show, the longer I've been on it the more I love playing Kevin and the more I appreciate Jeremy Carver, Robert Singer, Andrew Dabb and everyone else in the writer's room. It's not easy trying to make everyone happy so I have to be thankful that they've been able to keep me happy. I'm always looking forward to seeing scripts to find out what happens next to Kevin! 
4. What do you think of the arc that the season approaches?

I think the writers have done an amazing job with season 8 so far. They brought in a lot of fantastic characters, both old and new, and everyone's story arc has been very well crafted and enjoyable to follow. The next episode we're really digging into the thick of the plot so I'm excited to see it. Also because I tend to forget the episode by the time it airs.
5. You had already watched Supernatural before being invited?
I hadn't actually. I wish I would have, it would save me a lot of time trying to catch up. I knew of the show being from Vancouver but I never saw it until just before my audition. Luckily for me, Kevin Tran was in the same predicament as I was and it really helped that I had no idea what was going on so seeing a lot of the supernatural things happening, I just reacted because I never expected any of it. After that, I had a lot of my friends who are fans of the show help me catch up on what was happening. 
6. You would think that your character had such a great importance in the history?

I certainly hope so. Being one of two prophets isn't bad and Chuck certainly left his mark so I really hope that I'll be able to do that with Kevin. Only time and the fans will tell. 
7. How is working with Jensen, Jared, Lauren... ?

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE on the supernatural set has been such a pleasure to work with. Cast, crew, day players, catering, production assistants, it's just incredible the amount of good energy we have on that set and that just leaves me smiling every time I arrive on set. Jensen is a true professional, he is someone I look up to, he's got a very strong understanding of the set, the people and how it works and the fact that he's directed 3 successful episodes is something I admire and aspire to. Jared I look up to as well, but in a different way, he's really tall. Jared and I have a lot in common and he's a buddy. Quick to laugh, very intelligent guy and always has something interesting to say, we also play games together because we're both really competitive and he's just a really fun guy to be around. And Lauren. Well she's mom. She reminds me of my mom in a lot of ways and that's just nice sometimes because I miss my mom a lot and having Lauren around, especially in Los Angeles helps me from getting homesick. I love hanging out with her family here and it would be so awesome to hear that she'll be back on set at some point but until then we're gonna do a few projects together and hopefully she'll be able to come to a Supernatural Convention and we can do Tran family photos with everyone, haha.
