Meet Lane Edwards. This Calgary born actor is playing the role of an angel in Supernatural’s season 11 premiere “Out of the Darkness, into the Fire.” Edwards has a very nice filmography including roles in the 2014 film Godzilla, this year’s film The Age of Adaline, and the hugely popular TV series Falling Skies. Look for some good stuff with his role opposite Sam Worthington in the upcoming film The Shack.
Q. You play the role of an angel in Supernatural’s season 11 premiere “Out of the Darkness, into the Fire.” You were also in the season five episode “Dark Side of the Moon.” How did the cast and crew welcome you back to the set? What was the mood like on the set?
A. I did work in Season 5 and had a blast on that episode. On my first episode this time around Jensen Ackles was my director and he was fantastic to work with. This cast and crew is sort of known in Vancouver as being a favourite of local actors. They’re really friendly and make you feel very comfortable. And I still have friends from my first time here so it was great to see everybody.
Q. In the TV series Falling Skies you played the role of Sgt. Trevor Huston. What can you tell your fans about your experience on the set?
A. Sgt. Huston was a really fun role. He was a real slime-ball. The kind of guy you’d love to have over for dinner and introduce to mom, but turns on a dime. Great to be able to help Falling Skies end their series. And an amazing thing about Noah Wyle: He can still rattle off the medical jargon from his first audition for Dr. Carter on ER. Like on command. It’s scary.
Q. I see that you’re in a short film called Outside the Lines and are filming a really cool looking film called The Shack. What can you share about your upcoming projects?
A. I’m really excited about The Shack. It’s based on a bestselling book about a guy trying to deal with some really hard circumstances and really about how we as men deal with pain and trauma. I don’t want to give too much more away. I play Officer Tommy Dalton, who fans of the book will know, and had a great time working with Sam Worthington and Director Stuart Hazeldine.
Outside The lines was a fun little indie short for a festival I love here called Crazy 8’s. It had to be shot, edited, and handed over in 8 days. Really fun challenge.
Q. What can you share about your role in that new NBC drama series Heartbreaker?
A. I play a hedge fund manager who seems like a real jerk but, much like the Sgt. Huston role; don’t judge a book by its cover.
Q. Do you have any “hidden talents” that you can share with your fans? The quirkier the better?
A. I don’t know how quirky this is but I love to sing. I was raised in a very musical home and still belt it out around the house. And I love hitting up a good karaoke with pals.
Q. It’s almost playoff time for baseball. If you were a baseball player, what would your walk up song be?
A. Lately I’m really into The Weeknd. I love the second song on his new album. “Losers” (featuring Labrynth). I know it’s a weird title but that’s the one I’d come out to.
