Arthur will play the teenage version of a woman named Tina, who finds herself trapped in an very dangerous situation with a now 14-year-old Dean Winchester (guest star Dylan Everett) in the Feb. 3 episode of the cult hit’s 10th season.
Titled “About a Boy,” the episode sees Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) investigating a case in which people are disappearing into thin air with only their clothes left behind. The Winchesters suspect fairies or angels, but the truth turns out to be much more shocking — Hansel (guest star Mark Acheson), from Hansel and Gretel lore, is kidnapping people and turning them into their younger selves to placate the evil witch (“Downton Abbey’s” Lesley Nicol). Unfortunately, Dean finds this information out the hard way after he becomes Hansel’s next victim and reverts to his 14-year-old self.
Arthur played Jane, the daughter of Amy Adams and Christoph Waltz’s characters in the Golden Globe-winning “Big Eyes.” On TV she has previously guested on “The Killing” and the CW’s “Tomorrow People.”
The episode was written by Adam Glass and helmed by “Supernatural” director of photography Serge Ladouceur in his third stint in the director’s chair for the show.
