This Video Is Why People Think Misha Collins Came Out as Bisexual
47-year-old Misha Collins, known for his role in CW’s Supernatural, has seemingly come out as bisexual at a recent event. Collins was speaking at Creation Entertainment’s Supernatural Official Convention in New Jersey. In a moment that was recorded and posted to Twitter by fans, Collins turned personal.
“By show of force: how many of you would consider yourself introverts?” he asked. “How many extroverts? And how many bisexuals?” The crowd began to clap and cheer.
“I’m all three,” he appered to continue, waving his hand as if to brush off the moment.
On Supernatural, Collins played Castiel. Though the show ended in 2020, there is a sizeable fandom around the series. The show can be watched on Netflix in its entirety. Castiel is an angel who came out as gay in the show’s final season.
“I like that Cass is a queer icon,” Collins recently told Subjectify Media in an interview promoting the audio version of his poetry book Some Things I Still Cant Tell You. “I’m proud of him and his journey, and honored that so many people seem to have found something in his story that resonates with them.”
Castiel’s coming out was slightly fraught. Fans believe that there were signs throughout the character’s arc that he was gay and in love with Dean. The ship was given the name Destiel. Just before sacrifying himself, Cass says “I love you. Goodbye, Dean.”
Many took this as a confirmation of the undertones of the show. Others interpreted the love to be platonic. At the DarkLight Online Convention, Collins spoke out, confirming that it was a “homosexual declaration of love.” At the time, he also acknowledged that the storyline played into Hollywood’s “kill your gays” trope.
“We give and then we take away,” he said.
Collins is separated from his wife Victoria Vantoch, who he married in 2001. The news was announced in July 2021. The pair have two children together, West and Maison.
