Did it ever feel strange to audition to play Lucifer?

“I was lucky I didn’t have to audition for Lucifer. Jeremy Carver called my folks and said, ‘Would Mark Pellegrino like to play Lucifer?’ I said, ‘yeah!’ I don’t know what that means that they didn’t have to audition me for it, especially as that was season five Lucifer. I guess I give off a certain vibe. So yeah, I was fortunate because the audition process can be very nerve-wracking, especially when you’re auditioning for ‘series regular’ parts, which that became down the line. The great thing about Supernatural is that they said you can be this now, and you don’t have to go through the gruelling process of fifty auditions for studios and networks and all that crap, which can really get on your nerves. There’s a lot distracting you from the work in moments like that, so whenever you can get away with not auditioning, it’s great!”
