JAMES MARSTERS, may best be known around the world for his ever popular cult character “Spike,” the punk-goth vampire who he played on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” for seven years. After working six years on the hit show “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” he made the move to “Angel” for the last season it aired. A fan favorite, Marsters has received and been nominated for numerous awards worldwide.

Marsters recently filmed the co-lead, opposite Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler in the new Richard LaGravenese film, P.S. I Love You, based on the best-selling novel by Cecilia Ahem. Scheduled to be released in December, 2007, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. and will also feature Lisa Kudrow, Kathy Bates, and Gina Gershon. James also completed filming the Shoreline Entertainment thriller, Shadow Puppets. James stars as Jack, one of the eight people who awake in an abandoned asylum without any previous memories of their whereabouts. After discovering they were subjects of an experiment gone haywire, they also realize they are being stalked by a vicious Shadow Creature eager to end their lives. The film made it’s theatrical debut in June, 2007.

Currently, James is recurring on three television series: “Without A Trace”, “Smallville” and the UK hit “Torchwood.” When James joined the cast of “Smallville” as Brainiac in 2005 his appearance saw the ratings rise by an estimated 50%. Initially hired for just one episode of “Torchwood“, the creators immediately recognized a good thing and signed him up for two more. His storyline on “Without A Trace” will have him appear in a minimum of 6 episodes this season.

In March of 2005, Marsters starred in the USA Original true crime film, “Cool Money.” Marsters played Bobby Comfort a thief bouncing in and out of prison. But before he can settle into his life at home with his wife and kids, Bobby meets a bizarre thug who lures Bobby back to a life of crime. Together, the men take New York by storm, starting a string of hotel heists that humiliates the New York police and culminates into the largest jewel heist in American history.

Born in the remote northern logging town of Greenville, California, and raised in Modesto, California, Marsters always knew he wanted to be an actor. From his debut as ‘Eyeore’ in a fourth grade production of “Winnie the Pooh”, he went on to study acting at New York’s prestigious Julliard. He began his professional career in the theater, performing in stage productions such as “The Tempest” and “Red Noses” at Chicago’s renowned Goodman Theater. In addition, Marsters revisited the stage in Los Angeles, with a starring role in an original play produced by Noah Wyle titled, “The Why.”

Marsters made his on-screen debut guest-starring on the television series “Northern Exposure“. He landed the prominent role of an ill-at-ease priest, which was cast locally in Seattle, soon after moving to the Pacific Northwest. He was inspired by the success to move to Los Angeles and within months was sinking his proverbial teeth into the role of ‘Spike’ in “Buffy the Vampire Slayer“. Marsters, no stranger to television, starred in the anthology series “Strange Frequency” for VH1, as well as in Gene Roddenbury’s “Andromeda.” Other credits include the feature film “The House of Haunted Hill.” He will also appeared as a regular cast member in “Caprica“, the prequel series to the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica.

When he’s not working, Marsters enjoys being a father, playing the guitar, watching football, and spending time with friends at the beach. He is also a successful singer/songwriter who was the front man of the now defunct band, Ghost of the Robot. Together, the band sold out tours on an international level.

He has completed a very triumphant tour of the UK and Australia, in conjunction with the promotion of his first solo album, “Civilized Man.” His second solo album “Like A Waterfall” will be released November 1, 2007.

James looks forward to meeting all his fans at both the Sydney and Perth events in 2011. There are signing and photo sessions throughout each Saturday (10.30am to 5.30pm) and Sunday (11am to 5pm) excluding breaks. James is conducting Q&A session each day.
