While Supernatural Season 3 had characters you remember but forget the stars, there are other guest stars that you’ll never forget. Here are the most memorable of them all.

Supernatural Season 3 had a good mixture of guest stars. Some of them became the characters, so you remember the role but not the person behind it. Others stand out and you ended up following them elsewhere.

I’ve already looked at those that you’ve forgotten. Now it’s time to look at the Supernatural Season 3 guest stars and recurring stars that you definitely remember; the ones that really left a mark for good, bad, and intriguing reasons.

This is going to leave out Katie Cassidy and Lauren Cohan. Both were billed as series regulars for the season, despite not being in every single episode. I’m also leaving Sterling K. Brown out, as I included him in the most memorable guest stars of Supernatural Season 2.

1. Charles Malik Whitfield

There is only one actor to start this list with. It’s all about Victor Henriksen. I’m still a little gutted that he was killed off, although he had some excellent character development to make us feel something about his exit and that was just the way Eric Kripke wanted it.

However, I would have loved to see what could have been for Victor as a hunter. You just knew that would be the life he would choose if he had that chance.

Whitfield has guest starred in a number of primetime shows and feature films since. You’ll have seen him in the likes of CastleAmerican Horror StoryCSI: New YorkSleepy Hollow, and Blue Bloods. In recent years, his biggest roles have been in Empire and If Loving You Is Wrong.

2. Christopher Cousins

Let’s jump from FBI agent to doctor. In Supernatural Season 3, Episode 5, Dr. Garrison would have stood out. He was played by Christopher Cousins, who kept his daughter’s body and spirit alive and unknowingly put people at risk because he wasn’t ready to move on. Plus, his daughter was desperately trying to get the truth across to him about what had happened to her.

Cousins was one of those faces you definitely recognized the minute you watched the episode. He was Cain Rogan in One Life to Live and Judge Rainer in Vanished. He also played Bill in The Grudge 2.

Since his guest spot on Supernatural, he’s continued his successful career, landing recurring or starring roles in the likes of Breaking Bad, Revolution, UnREAL, The Vampire Diaries, and Glee.

3. Sandra McCoy

In the same episode, Sam Winchester faced off against a nameless crossroad demon. While this role was small, it’s a guest star spot that Supernatural fans of the time certainly wouldn’t have missed. Jared Padalecki was in a scene opposite his fiancee at the time, Sandra McCoy.

The two are starred in Cry Wolf together and were still together at the time of filming. They broke up shortly after this episode and Jared has since found love (and built a family) with Genevieve Cortese Padalecki.

As for Sandra, she continued landing guest star roles on various shows, including Secret Girlfriend and Femme Fatals, along with a few movie roles. She hasn’t acted since 2014.

4. Sasha Barrese

I’ll admit that before watching Supernatural, I enjoyed Run of the House. That was where I first saw Sasha Barrese on my TV screen so the guest star spot may stand out more for me than others. However, Barrese had a big role for the episode, not just playing the demon but to be the first demon to call Yellow Eyes by his name Azazel and to mention the big plan.

The Hangover fans will recognize her as Tracy. She was in all three movies, and the third was her last acting credit. Before that, she did a mixture of movie roles and guest spots in various shows.

5. Robert Curtis Brown

The next guest star you will remember is Robert Curtis Brown. He was in “Sin City” with Sasha Barrese, playing Father Gil. He was the other demon in the city that was just there for a little bit of fun.

As for Robert, you’ve likely seen him on your screens since. His most recent credit is The Handmaid’s Tale on Hulu. He was also in two recent episodes of Dear White People. He’s taken on a mixture of guest star, recurring, and starring roles in the likes of Bones, Perception, Hawaii Five-0, Code Black, and so much more!

6. Richard Speight Jr. 

There is no way he could be left out, right? Even before he became known as Gabriel and became such a huge part of the SPN Family with directing and convention appearances, Richard Speight Jr. was a highly memorable guest star of Supernatural Season 3.

Some of that is because I hate the Trickster for what he did to Sam in “Mystery Spot.” However, it’s also because he was so darn quotable and eye-catching. The episode stands out as a favorite for many fans, making any guest star stand out.

7 & 8. Cindy Sampson & Nicholas Elia

Okay, I’m cheating by putting both of these together but I’m counting them as two separate guest stars. However, they’re memorable as a pair, since they are Lisa and Ben Braeden. Oh what could have been, am I right?

Both stand out for the same reasons. They were what Dean wished he could have had. As his time left on Earth ran shorter, he thought of everything he was missing out on and having a family was the main thing. All he was leaving behind was a car and he wanted more than that.

Love or hate Lisa and Ben, they stood for something important in Dean’s life. And part of me wishes things could have been different for all three in Supernatural Season 6.

9. Mercedes McNab

Can you really forget a Buffy the Vampire Slayer on Supernatural? This is certainly one that you just can’t forget due to the fact that Mercedes McNab played a vampire on both shows. The character just turned out to be a little different, as Lucy in Supernatural Season 3, Episode 7 had no idea that she’d been turned into a vampire.

Lucy’s character has a connection to Dracula. The vampire Dracula turns Lucy into a vampire unknowingly, in a similar way that Dixon turned Mercedes’ Lucy.

She didn’t last long in the episode, but her character didn’t necessarily need to be around for that long. It was just fun to add yet another Buffy character to the series.

10. Michael Massee

While I’m not including Sterling K. Brown again, I am going to include an actor from the two episodes Brown was in. Michael Massee played Kubrick, the God-believing hunter, who just wanted to do the right thing.

You’ll have known him for plenty of roles before Supernatural Season 3, which made him so memorable. He was in Criminal MindsThe Batman TV series, Catwoman, and so much more. By the way, he was in 24 at the same time as Misha Collins!

Since his guest spots, you’d have spotted him in FlashforwardCSI: Crime Scene InvestigationEverlasting, and The Blacklist.

11. Sierra McCormick

While Rachael Pattee took on the role of young Lilith the first time, it was Sierra McCormick who really stood out in the role. In fact, she’d reprise the role in Supernatural Season 4 when Dean was hallucinating. Honestly, she made this role her own and brought that creepy child element to it perfectly.

It shouldn’t be surprising to hear that she’s still acting and has had a successful career so far. After Supernatural, she was in Boston Legal, Hannah Montana, and Criminal Minds as a guest star. You’ll now spot her in the likes of A.N.T. FarmTwisted SistersThe Honor List, and Christmas in the Heartland. She also has multiple projects in various stages of development.

12. Billy Drago

Possibly the most memorable guest star of them all is Billy Drago. Who didn’t already know who he was before going into Supernatural Season 3? In fact, who didn’t think that he’d make an awesome villain of some sort against the Winchesters before this?

I remembered him in Charmed as the Demon of Fear. Like Mark Sheppard, he’s one of those actors that pops up everywhere, sometimes in recurring roles and sometimes in one-off guest spots.

While there are projects on his IMDb, he’s not actually had anything out since 2014. However, he remains one of those actors many love for his ability to step into almost any role.
