'Supernatural' actor Misha Collins gets mugged in Mpls; in town for MinnCon


Misha Collins, an actor in the TV series "Supernatural," was reportedly mugged in downtown Minneapolis Friday.

The star tweeted he was doing OK.

Collins was in town for MinnCon, the official convention to celebrate the TV series' 10-year anniversary. The weekend-long event at the Minneapolis Convention Center included meet and greets, photos ops and vendors.

Entertainment Weekly reports the details of the incident are unknown, but fans say Richard Speight Jr. announced at a panel Collins that was mugged and needed stitches.

The News Hub reports he did appear for some photo ops and autograph signings Saturday and appeared injured.

Fans sent an outpouring of support and well wishes for Collins on Twitter with the #WeLoveYouMisha hashtag trending worldwide, according to News Hub.

Supernatural has a cult-like following, since it began airing in 2005. According to IMDB, the show is about two brothers who "follow their father's footsteps as 'hunters' fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth."

Collins plays Castiel, who is the "Angel of Heaven."
