Our exclusive interview with Cyrina Fiallo (Supernatural's Delta Mendota from 'A Little Slice of Kevin')
WinchesterBros: Were you a fan of Supernatural before you got your part?
Cyrina Fiallo: I had always heard so much about the show, but sadly, had never actually seen an episode! I was really excited about the audition, so I watched a bunch (thanks to Netflix) and got myself caught up. After the first episode I was hooked, and now I've got my entire family hooked as well!
WB: How did you get the part of Delta Mendota?
CF: My lovely agent and managers worked to get me in the room. The casting directors in that office are so sweet, I got called back the same day and was on a plane to Vancouver a few days later!
WB:In your scenes, you got to work with some great actors, Osric Chau, Lauren Tom, and Mark Sheppard. Can you tell us what it was like to work with them?
CF: It's always a bit nerve wracking being the "new girl" on set, but with this group, it didn't feel that way at all. They were all SO welcoming and I felt we got along right away. Lauren is a sweetheart, Mark is a sarcastic charmer, and Osric and I were instant friends. We get to hang out every time he comes to LA!
WB: Although Jensen and Jared weren’t in your scenes, did you get to meet them?
CF: Alas, I did not. However, everyone was constantly talking about them on set and how amazing they are, so I hope I get to meet them one day! Also, that was basically the first question everyone asked me when I got home. I broke a lot of hearts.
WB: Your character had some great lines. Which one was your favorite?
CF: Thanks to Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner I had a lot of fun lines to work with. My favorite one has to be, "I'm mercurial". There are so many ways to say that line. I think it's the only time anyone might feel bad for Delta. She just can't help it. Witches be crazy.
WB: We didn’t see your character actually die. Is there a chance we could see her again?
CF: I'm going to dream big and say there's always a chance for anything. Maybe I get the garage band back together and we lure people to destruction like sirens.
WB: How many days did it take to film your scenes? Can you tell us what your time on set was like?
CF: I flew out to Vancouver on a Thursday, filmed for about 14 hours on Friday, and flew back to LA on Saturday. It was definitely a whirlwind. Like I mentioned before, I was so thrilled with how inviting everyone was on set. It was such a fun experience. There was a large chunk of downtime at one point, so Osric and I explored an abandoned set and took some fun pictures. I'll post them on twitter soon :)
WB: Jim Michaels, Supernatural’s executive producer, was also an executive producer for Everybody Hates Chris which you were also on. Did you meet Jim during that time?
CF: I don't believe I met Jim while working on Everybody Hates Chris, but when I saw him in Vancouver he remembered me! It was such a nice surprise. He was so sweet, and being that EHC was one of my first jobs, and Supernatural was my newest to date, it was pretty special.
WB: Had you been told about the Supernatural fandom, conventions, etc? Would you be interested in doing conventions?
CF: When I told people I was going to be on Supernatural, I wish I could have taped some of their reactions for you. I had so many people tell me that it's their favorite show. It made me feel really blessed to be a part of something like that. I went to Comi-Con a few years back and it was INCREDIBLE. I love when large groups of amazing people get together to show their fandom, so I would be ecstatic to be part of a Supernatural convention.
WB: Do you have any upcoming projects that you’d like to tell us about?
CF: I'm in a cover band called "The Girls" (who sing other people's songs) with fellow actresses Julianna Guill and Alison Brie. We did a show earlier this year in NYC with the band "Jones Street Station". We have a show coming up at the Viper Room December 14th, so we've been rehearsing a lot for that. I'm also in the middle of writing my third feature with my writing partner Chrissie Fit. We hope to get one of our projects made soon!
