I had the chance to catch up with actress Jud Tylor and heard about her experience on the ‘Supernatural’ episodes “Black” and “Soul Survivor.” Tylor described life on the set as the angel Adina as “Kick-snooze-punch- sleep.” Vancouver born actress started out as model traveling the world and now Tylor has a very impressive filmography including roles in the Jackie Robinson story ’42’, ‘Charlie Wilson’s War’, and recurring roles in ‘That ’70s Show’, and spots on ‘NCIS: Los Angeles’, ‘The Mentalist’, and more. This beautiful and talented actress is also an animal rescue activist with the cause of finding homes for animals is very close to her heart.
Q. I loved your tweet that said “Okay, that did not go well! #Adina #Supernatural.” My readers would love to hear all about your experience on the set of ‘Supernatural.’ What can you share?
A. I had an absolute blast working on the show and it was great fun to kick some butt. Misha’s a real sport, it can’t be fun to be kicked through a glass door and I had the privilege of being directed by Jensen Ackles. He’s a lovely as he looks! Very collaborative crew and a ton of fun to be choreographing fight scenes, a great workout to boot. One of my big fight sequences was a night shoot and I had to keep my energy up until sunrise. Lots of jelly doughnuts and coffee and a few snoozes between scenes. Kick-snooze-punch- sleep. It was an honor to be a part of the show and hopefully there will be a resurrection! ;)
Q. What can you share about your upcoming projects?
A. It’s always a bit of a dance to find a project you feel passionate about. I’m reading scripts at the moment and considering what to explore next.
Q. I believe I read that you started out as a model. How did you find your way in to the acting biz?
A. I worked as a model and lived overseas in Tokyo and Hong Kong for a number of years. I noticed that I had a knack for performing when I stated booking a lot of commercial spots. I’ve always had an interest in the theatre and started training professionally. One of my first gigs was a lead in a feature with Rodney Dangerfield called “My Five Wives”. I played Rodney’s very young bride and my love for show business was born! I haven’t turned back since.
Q. I love your Twitter bio that you’re an animal rescue activist. Tell your fans about your passion about animals.
A. I love animals and finding homes for them is a cause close to my heart. Every year millions of dogs and cats are euthanized at local shelters because of over population. Almost half of the animals brought into Californian shelters are euthanized because suitable homes can’t be found for them. Animal rescue can lead to the safety of millions of these lost souls. Making the choice to adopt could be the best decision of your life…it was for me. I met my closest companion at a Lancaster county pound a day before he was euthanized and he’s been the love of my life.
Q. If you were a baseball player, what would your walkup song be?
A. I think I’d go with Jorge Quintero’s 300 Violin Orchestra for my walk up song. Foster the People’s “Pumped up Kicks” is a great pump up song…pun intended!
