“Hey, y’all. Greetings from Austin from my trailer,” the former “Supernatural” star began the video he posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday, Sept. 8. “Uh, today was day one – my day one – of ‘Walker’ season two. And, uh, I gotta admit – I was nervous.”

Luckily for the “Walker” actor, there was someone close to him who offered him some needed words of encouragement.

“I was laughing to (wife Genevieve Padalecki) because I was like, ‘This is my 22nd day one of a season of television in my life and I’m nervous,” the actor shared. “She’s like, ‘You’re gonna be great.'”
