Interview with Mr. Ketch himself ‘Supernatural’s David Haydn-Jones

Arthur Ketch is a smooth, James Bond-like character that has been added to this season’s “Supernatural,” and fans are definitely falling for his charm. Bringing the British Men of Letters’ character to life is actor David Haydn-Jones. So far he’s treated CW viewers to three episodes this season 12; ‘American Nightmare,’ ‘LOTUS,’ and ‘First Blood.’ Out of way up north in Kyle, Saskatchewan, Haydn-Jones is also known for his roles in the film “The Last Kiss,” “White House Down,” and the Hallmark film “My Christmas Dream.” He can also been found in TV shows such as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” and “Medium.”

Colleen Bement: Welcome to the “Supernatural family” with your very cool role as Arthur Ketch this twelfth season. Fans love your character so far.

David Haydn-Jones: Thank you, Colleen. Lovely to be playing in this very cool world.

CB: Do you and your character of Mr. Ketch share any similarities?

DHJ: The same face?! Ha ha. Seriously though, I love wearing his clothes. If I could, I would wear 5K Hugo Boss suits every day and his beautiful Bellwether biker jacket.

CB: Played a role in season three of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” What can you share about being on the set?

DHJ: I was a fan of the show and a pretty new actor to Los Angeles, so to be cast was a thrill. To play a Brit and to work with the incredibly gracious veteran actor, Harris Yulin was also a thrill. He was so welcoming, interested and encouraging. He taught me a real lesson about grace, generosity, and mentorship on sets.

CB: Tell your fans about how you were raised as “half-British, half-American, all-Canadian.”

DHJ: So Dad is native Welsh and Mom grew up in Texas, Michigan, and North Carolina. They met in London, England where they lived for a time then raised me internationally and for a large part in the prairies of Canada.

CB: Baseball spring training is around the corner. If you were a baseball player, what would your walk-up song be?

DHJ: Well, I don’t know if this is a very “baseball” song, but man M.I.A’s “Yala” certainly warms up my body and gets my game face on. I love that it’s an energy song about Karma. Live life with joy, energy, and integrity!
