The site TV Guide Magazine has a new interview/article with the actor Mark Pellegrino, who plays Lucifer.
The article also has a spoilery picture of an upcoming Supernatural episode and some spoiler-tease about the other Mark’s work: the TV Show Lost.
Mark Pellegrino Pulls Double Duty
by William Keck
Talk about a split personality complex. For the past year, Mark Pellegrino has been dividing time between Vancouver and Hawaii playing polar-opposite characters—Lucifer on the CW’s Supernatural and the God-like Jacob on ABC’s Lost. With Lost concluding May 23, and Lucifer’s season-long scheme of unleashing the Apocalypse finally set to explode on Supernatural’s May 13 finale, expect cataclysmic shockers for both shows.
First, on Lost, we’ll learn that Jacob—soon to have a confrontation with Jack—may not be so godly after all when his character takes center stage in “Across the Sea” on May 11 (followed a week later by the penultimate “What They Died For”). “Jacob has a lot of darkness and corners we haven’t explored yet, so the differences between him and Lucifer are not as much as you would think,” says Mark, an L.A. native who shares a passion for martial arts with Lost rival/real-life chum Titus Welliver (Man in Black). “With these archetypal characters, the boundary between good and evil becomes blurry. Jacob’s on a mission. It’s your judgment as to whether he’s good or bad.”
There’ll be no such debating Supernatural’s devastating season ender. Per Mark, Lucifer seeks “revenge on God for betraying him by annihilating God’s primary love—people. And let’s put it this way: You should definitely expect some pretty crazy bloodletting.”
As for his own beliefs, back in his mid-20s, Mark, now 45, was baptized in an L.A. pool as a born-again Christian, but now has a more “spiritual/philosophical” point of view. Claiming to be a “pretty angelic” husband and father, he surely must possess at least one devilish habit? “Sometimes I pilfer socks and underwear from sets,” he says, quickly clarifying, “They’re the clean, fresh ones. It’s not like I go into somebody’s trailer and pick out their underwear.” Evangeline Lilly and Jared Padalecki just breathed sighs of relief.
