Q&A with James Marsters

“A New Man: James Marsters” was standing room only in the Centennial II/III Friday afternoon. Marsters (“Spike” on Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel) appeared relaxed in blue jeans and a sleeveless t-shirt. He was charming, unpretentious, and, oh my goodness, buff (with or without the “y”). We learned Marsters’ favorite color: green–“the color of mother earth”; lollipop flavor: Tootsie Roll red… Read more →

Taking a Chance at Dragon*Con

The Buffy the Vampire Slayer track at Dragon*Con will boast quite a turnout of celebrity guests this year.  Welcoming back Andrew Hallett (“Lorne”), Dragon*Con is very pleased to add James Marsters (“Spike”), James Leary (“Clem”), Iyari Limon (“Kennedy”), and Danny Strong (“Jonathan”) to our convention line-up.  Enough to satisfy most ravening Buffy fans at Dragon*Con, doncha think?

Mischievous, Charming, and Evil: An Hour with Robin Sachs

Looking much like his sexy/sophisticated smooth-voiced character, Ethan Rayne, on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series, Robin Sachs entered the packed Montreal/Vancouver room dressed in a white t-shirt and slim-fitting jeans to do an hour long “Meet Ethan Rayne” Q & A. Sachs struck quite the muscle-bound figure as he good-naturedly flexed and posed for the shutterbug contingent.  It… Read more →

Mesmerizing, Haunting, Ethereal – The Changelings

Plagued by technical difficulties—a persistent and annoying electronic hum that could not be eliminated and a scratchy burr in the microphone—The Changelings went on an hour after their scheduled 11:30 PM starting time in the Centennial ballroom on Friday.  But despite the various equipment shortcomings, they still managed to put on a first-rate show. The Changelings are mesmerizing, haunting, and… Read more →
