Marsters of the universe - Written by Rohan Williams
He’s been a vampire, a robot, a terrorist and an omnisexual time traveler. James Marsters has spent the past 15 years winning the hearts and minds of sci-fi and fantasy fans, and the Californian actor is on his way back to Supanova to bask in their adoration.
The Buffy, Smallville and Torchwood star reflects on a long showbiz career and talks dildos, fan fiction and ageing with Rohan Williams.

Yeah, I love it, man. I love it. I love that people are walking around these conventions carrying swords and axes and drinking beer and nobody gets into a fight. Where else in the world does that happen? I always compare it to a Grateful Dead concert or a Burning Man festival where you can pretty much be whatever you want. You can be 70 years old and be a Klingon; you can be 12 years old and be Spider-Man. It’s all good. FULL INTERVIEW
