Welsh Spike

Now this is kinda exciting, because I love Joss Whedon's "Buffyverse" and every single damn character within it (well maybe not Riley Finn, but he's the exception that proves the rule - so there). Of them all though the one character that always stood out in my mind as a firm favourite was Spike the vampire, as played by James Marsters.

Spike appeared on both "Buffy" and "Angel", so Marsters is no stranger to cult series. He's also appeared regularly in the pre-Superman series "Smallville". Now it seems that Marsters is heading on over to Britain (or more precisely Cardiff) to film an appearence in a second season episode of, you guessed it... Torchwood! James Marsters is appearing in Torchwood!!! (So says this site)


Wait one moment; I'm just picking my jaw up off of the floor...

I've no other information on what form this cameo appearence will take, or what episodes he'll be appearing in. Hell, there isn't even official confirmation of his guest star role as of yet - but any fellow Buffyverse fans will agree with me that the prospect of Marsters in Torchwood is exciting indeed. Personally, I think he'd nail the role of a young Bilis Manger...

"No you don't; but thanks for saying it"
