TURN: Washington Spies has won its battle to remain on the air, at least for one more season.
Amy Gumenick is a gifted actress with an impressive resume of television and film roles including CSI, Bones, Grey’s Anatomy. She is well-known to fans of The CW’s long running show Supernatural for her incredible portrayal of young Mary Winchester. Arrow fans have been riveted watching the talented Gumenick transform into Cupid. Currently, Amy Gumenick has been mesmerizing viewers as Philomena in the AMC period drama TURN: Washington Spies. This August, we can see Gumenick as Sarah in the horror film The Binding. I recently had the opportunity to talk with Amy Gumenick about the various characters she has played. Read what she had to say below.
Actress Amy Gumenick may not be a household name (yet) but the versatile actress continues to compile an impressive body of work.
Already a television veteran, Gumenick has appeared in numerous small screen projects. She starred as ill-fated teen Natalee Holloway. Some of her other acting credits include roles on Bones and Grey’s Anatomy.
But the road so far took Gumenick to The CW where she achieved greater recognition and countless fans for roles on Supernatural and Arrow. As Young Mary Winchester, the doomed mother of heroic brothers Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) on the long running Supernatural, Gumenick turned in stellar performances. In her first appearance in the Season 4 episode,”In The Beginning,” fans learned that Mary reluctantly embraced the Campbell family business of hunting. Her story was one of longing for a normal life (a familiar refrain, especially with her youngest son Sam) yet having her own life come to a tragic end courtesy of the Yellow Eyed Demon. Gumenick’s second appearance in the Season 5 episode “The Song Remains The Same” once again allowed the actress to tap into Mary’s strength and determination.
Amy Gumenick is one of those rare actresses who can effortlessly succeed at any acting challenge.
This is because Gumenick effectively uses all of the tools of her craft: Her eyes, her voice, her body language. Regardless of what character she portrays, viewers are captivated. We don’t question that she is the mother of heroic brothers Sam and Dean Winchester(Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) on The CW’s long running show Supernatural. Our hearts ache for Gumenick’s Mary who is unable to reconcile her hunter lifestyle against her desire for a normal life. Gumenick made Mary strong, yet there was a poignancy that she brought to the role that resonated with viewers.
