Gather your capes and cowls, Sask Expo returns September 17 & 18!

This weekend’s Saskatoon Comic and Entertainment Expo is gearing up to be something special.

We can’t contain our excitement for this year’s media guests which include Princess Leia herself, Carrie Fisher, Slytherin bad boy Tom Felton and Stranger Things actors Shannon Purser and Randall P. Havens. Between cosplay, Star Wars trivia, collectible shopping and snapping photos with celebrities, this is going to be one action packed weekend!

Joining the media guests is James Marsters, who’s famously known for his role as Spike, the punk rock vampire from Josh Whedon’s Buffy the Vampire Slayer television series. After binge-watching Buffy on Netflix we eagerly talked to Marsters about Buffy, his band Ghost of the Robot as well as his exciting new film and TV projects:

Ominocity: What did you enjoy most about your time on Buffy/Angel?

James Marsters: Working with the writers. Joss is not only a fantastic writer, but he recognizes good writing and hired nine of the best writers on the planet. They’re all writing and show running their own shows now and doing great things — Oscar nominated even. They’re producing Daredevil and Caprica and the list is so long. But I got to work with them when they were young and hungry, and you can’t beat that. There are fantastic things that happen when there is that much talent focused on one show.
