Just got the following press release:


“Buffy” alum joins other talented guests at Phoenix in May

Phoenix, Ariz.—James Marsters, breakout star of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and television actor on series such as Smallville and Torchwood will be appearing at Phoenix Comicon.

“James Marsters played some of the greatest characters on scifi television,” said Matt Solberg, Convention Director. “He was Spike on Buffy, Braniac on Smallville, and he voiced Lex Luthor in Superman: Doomsday. We are absolutely thrilled that he’ll be coming to Phoenix.”

Marsters began his career with a small role on television’s Northern Exposure, but it wasn’t until his role as the reformed vampire Spike on Joss Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer that his true star power showed through.

“We are so glad Marsters is taking the time to visit Phoenix,” said Anabel Martinez, Marketing Director. “Our attendees and fans will love having the chance to meet him in person.”

Most recently, Marsters starred in the History Channel’s movie Moonshot, portraying Buzz Aldrin. He has also been cast in a guest star role on the new SyFy series Caprica, a prequel to the critically-acclaimed Battlestar Galactica.

Marsters will also be performing in concert at the Phoenix Comicon at a special ticketed event.
