Genevieve Padalecki will play a special role on the Walker reboot
Supernatural fans have another reason to tune into Walker. Not only is Jared Padalecki the lead, but his real-life wife, Genevieve Padalecki, has been cast in an extra special role. She’ll play his on-screen wife in the series, according to Deadline.
It only makes sense to keep it in the family. Supernatural fans have already seen the chemistry the two have on-screen. During Season 4, Genevieve was cast as the demon Ruby and had a relationship with Jared’s Sam. That was where the two met and they started a real-life relationship after that.
Genevieve has been a constant support for Jared, who suffers from depression. Many Supernatural fans worried about Jared losing his support system once the 15-season-long season ended, but he’s keeping it on Walker with his wife by his side. Plus, the series films in his hometown, making it much easier to see his kids to help.
What we know about Genevieve Padalecki on Walker
Genevieve will play Jared’s wife on the Walker reboot, which is set to start filming later this month. However, fans know that Walker is a widower. Genevieve’s appearances will be through flashbacks to show the type of woman his wife was. She helped the disenfranchised and was a support in the community, which makes it all the more devastating that she died.
Cordell Walker isn’t all that certain that his wife’s death was all that accidental. He grows increasingly suspicious about the circumstances around her death throughout the first season, which could send him down a dark path.
It could also lead to problems at home. Cordell wants to reconnect with his children, but the negativity could lead to clashes and arguments.
There should be plenty of flashbacks, and Genevieve isn’t the only person connected to Jared’s time on Supernatural. Mitch Pileggi will play Cordell’s father Bonham on the series.
