Supernatural’s Felicia Day wants to star in Agent Carter

If you’ve been living under a rock for the last 10 years then maybe you have an excuse for not knowing who Felicia Day is.

A pioneer of the new generation web series creators she parleyed the massive success of her YouTube series The Guild (now available on Netflix) into the premium online network Geek & Sundry, which to date has 1.3million subscribers and over 200 million views.

But whilst Felicia is known for her independent creative spirit that hasn’t prevented her from making inroads with some of the biggest mainstream talent around. With roles in shows such Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-A-Long Blog, she’s worked closely with Marvel’s current golden boy director Joss Whedon.


And more recently fans of The CW’s hit show Supernatural (now in its 10th series), will know her as the Winchesters’ ally in the fight against evil, Charlie Bradbury, but it sounds like there’s another action-packed TV show she’d like a role in…

You’re known for Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-Long Blog, so you have this working relationship with director Joss Whedon. Can we expect to see you in any of the Marvel TV shows and movies, and if so which one would you love to be in ?

I certainly never take for granted that my friends would like to work with me. I know they would. But it all depends on whether a great role comes up or not, and that being said I think the big movies are probably out. They’re for very fancy people.

But I’d love to be on Agent Carter, just because I love period pieces, and I think I’d look really good in those hats. So certainly whether I’d to be a superhero, or just a character, that would be super fun.


You’ve worked both inside and outside a network and studio system. Is there one side of the industry you prefer ?

When you’re working on an actual professional production you don’t have to worry about not getting crew members, or having limitations as far shooting in your home, or not being able to go over time because you can’t afford another day to shoot. You have enough people that you hire to worry about all the problems. So it’s very stressful to do your own thing.

But at the same time you don’t have a network telling you to do something with your show that you may not agree on. You also can instantly upload something like on your phone. The spontaneity of it is very wonderful, because then you’re having a relationship with you fans and the people who watch your stuff in a more real way.

So of course I love both things, and hopefully in the next year or so I’ll be able to get my own show, on a bigger level, off the ground. But not losing that spirit of being very collaborative with my audience


Felicia you’re an actor, screenwriter, producer and soon-to-be published author. Creatively do you feel as if you’re in an Alexander the Great ‘no more worlds left to conquer’ situation ?

Oh gosh no. There’s always more worlds to conquer. For instance I could be a much better crocheter. I don’t even know how to crochet. No, certainly I would love to direct something. I have something that I’m trying to work on now that I could direct in the future.

And I’d love to create a videogame, because that’s something I’m known for. The videogame world. But yet I’ve never had the opportunity to be on the other creative side of it. I don’t know if it will happen in a year, or five years, or ten years. But before I die I would like to have done something small in the videogame world on the creative side.

You’re widely known as being a big gamer, but you’ve also worked as a voice artist on several titles now. Do you play your own games, and if so do you end up favouring your own characters ?

I certainly play with my own characters. But it’s weird when you have to romance your own character. That was awkward in Dragon Age, a little bit, but it doesn’t go all the way in that DLC. So that was kind of fun.

Yeah I do play with my characters, and I think it’s pretty fun. I don’t know, I guess maybe you can separate yourself, especially if you don’t look like yourself. It’s a little easier to separate the journey. I mean every videogame character is different, and it’s fun to play with a variety of them. But it’s fun to see what I’m coming out like.
