Fast Facts You Need To Know
Marsters has narrated the audiobooks for The Dresden Files, a series of detective novels with a supernatural bent and was also contracted to narrate the fourth in the series, Summer Knight, in 2006. He reprised his reading of the series, including Proven Guilty, White Night, Small Favor, and Turn Coat, produced by Penguin Audio, and the Death Masks audio book which was released in late 2009. Blood Rites, Dead Beat, Turn Coat, Changes, and the side short story collection in the same universe, Side Jobs, were also recorded by Marsters. However, he did not do the Dresden book Ghost Story due to a scheduling conflict, leaving fellow Smallville alumnus John Glover to record it; this caused a fairly noteworthy public outcry by audiobook listeners. He returned for the book Cold Days. On March 24, 2015, Jim Butcher announced that a new version of the Ghost Story audiobook is being released effective April 21, 2015 with Marsters returning as narrator in response to fan demands.
Aside from playing the character, Marsters co-wrote a comic book one-shot for Dark Horse Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Spike and Dru.

In 2008, he guest-starred in Torchwood, a spin-off of the popular British science fiction television series Doctor Who, first appearing in the episode “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang”, as the nefarious omnisexual time traveller Captain John Hart. He reprised the role in the last two episodes of the second season.
Like A Waterfall was produced by Ryan Shore and features several other musicians including Blair Sinta, who has drummed for Alanis Morissette, and Five for Fighting bass player Curt Schneider. In 2008, Marsters’ Waterfall Tour came to the UK. He played three dates across London and performed for three consecutive days in Milton Keynes. The concert at the packed Union Chapel in Islington was an acoustic set featuring material from his album—Like A Waterfall.
In September 2006, Marsters’ interpretation of Godber’s Teechers was performed on the Queen Mary with two other actors in Los Angeles. This is a play he had received critical acclaim for as a stage actor prior to his television work. Marsters co-starred in the 2007 cinematic release of P.S. I Love You alongside Kathy Bates, Hilary Swank, and Gerard Butler. Released in September 2007, Marsters starred in the direct-to-DVD animated movie, Superman: Doomsday, providing the voice of iconic villain Lex Luthor. The film received mostly positive reviews.
During his September 2006 convention, James Marsters & Friends, he debuted several new songs including “The Truth Is Heavy”, “Fall of Night”, “Jealous Man”, and “Not A Millionaire”. All these songs reflect his new blues music and folk sound. He also performed a cover version of Keb Mo’s classic “Baby Blue”. In 2007, he performed live several times in the UK and debuted two new songs written in Cardiff. “Layabout” and “Looking at You” reflect a more upbeat light folk move in Marsters’ music. These songs as well as some of his previously unrecorded work were released on Marsters’ second solo album, formally launched in Los Angeles and Cardiff in October and November 2007 respectively. This album, Like A Waterfall, includes twelve songs, all written by Marsters. Most had been performed and recorded live but not in the studio. An exception is “When I Was A Baby”, a song never previously performed in public.
In 2005, Marsters filmed a thriller, Shadow Puppets, with Jolene Blalock. Late that year, Marsters appeared on the television series Smallville playing Dr. Milton Fine—the popular Superman villain Brainiac—in eight episodes throughout the show’s fifth season. He reprised his role as Brainiac in a four-episode arc in the seventh season, and did a cameo voice-over in season eight. He returned for one episode in the show’s final season. On October 29, 2005, Marsters presented two performances of his own abridged adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth with American actress Cheryl Puente as Lady Macbeth, followed by question and answer sessions with the audience and acoustic concerts in London.
Marsters’ solo musical career was launched in October 2004, in London. His solo acoustic tour of the United Kingdom in April 2005 sold out. A new solo album “Civilized Man” produced by Chris Rhyne and Andrew Rosenthal was released on April 15, 2005. It includes several new songs as well as the popular “Katie” and “Smile”. He has played songs from the album live in Detroit, Houston, and Sacramento. Ten of the eleven songs are written by Marsters.
New solo songs not included on the album but sung at live solo concerts include “Birth of the Blues”, “Finer than Gold”, “Louise”, and “London City”. “Finer than Gold”, “London City”, and “Louise” were composed while on tour in the UK in April 2005. “Birth of the Blues” was composed by Marsters in Amsterdam in 2004 while touring with his now-defunct band. During his October 2005 mini-tour of the UK, Marsters introduced other new songs to his sets: “Button Down Vandals”, “Up On Me”, and “All That She Wanted”. These songs were available only as part of his recently released Words and Music DVD, which has his abridged version of Macbeth as well as a full-length solo music performance.
After the conclusion of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Marsters carried Spike over to its spinoff, Angel, as a series regular in the fifth and final season of the show. Marsters was asked to keep quiet about this, as his return was intended to be a surprise, but the network promoted Spike’s return as soon as it could in order to attract advertising. In April 2004, following the end of Angel, Marsters had Spike’s trademark bleached hair shaved off for charity live on television in On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
When the show was cancelled, there were plans for several TV movies. Talk of a Spike movie began in 2004 and Whedon still had plans into 2006, before it was formally abandoned. Marsters had said he would only return to play Spike if the project took place within five years, feeling he would become too old to play the character (an immortal) after that:
In 2003–04, Marsters was the lead singer for the rock band Ghost of the Robot. Their debut album Mad Brilliant was released on February 2, 2003. The band played its first gigs in Los Angeles and Paris. They went on to play successful dates in and around Los Angeles and two sold-out tours of Europe in 2003 and 2004. In addition to Mad Brilliant, they released three singles (“Valerie”, “David Letterman” and “New Man”) and one mid-length EP, It’s Nothing. All these releases carried tracks written and co-written by Marsters. Several of Ghost of the Robot’s earlier songs were loosely based on the Buffy the Vampire Slayer characters Buffy, Dawn, and Faith.
In 1992, Marsters got his first acting job on Northern Exposure, in which he appeared for two episodes as a bellboy and a church minister. He has made guest appearances on television series such as Andromeda, as well as the independent films Chance (2002), Winding Roads (1999), and the USA Network movie Cool Money (2005). In 1999, he had a small role in the remake of House on Haunted Hill as a TV cameraman.
In 1990, Marsters moved to Seattle and, with Liane Davidson and Greg Musick, formed the New Mercury Theatre. In this and other companies, Marsters was involved in a wide range of plays, including Teechers (a British play by John Godber), Anouilh’s Antigone, an original work based on the Dr. Seuss books, and Shaw’s Misalliance.
Marsters moved to Chicago, where his first professional acting role was Ferdinand in The Tempest at the Goodman Theatre in 1987. In this production, he was rolled onto the stage strapped naked to a wheel. He also appeared with well-known Chicago companies such as the Northlight and the Bailiwick and with his own group, the Genesis Theatre Company. Marsters was nominated for a Joseph Jefferson Award for his performance of the lead role of Robespierre in the six-hour drama Incorruptible: The Life, Death and Dreams of Maximilian de Robespierre in 1989.
Marsters was born in Greenville, California, the son of a United Methodist minister and social worker. He grew up with his brother, Paul, and sister, Susan, in Modesto, California. Dreaming about becoming an actor since he played Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh in fourth grade, Marsters joined the theater group at Grace M. Davis High School and acted in many plays, including musicals. After graduation in 1980, Marsters studied at the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria, California. In 1982, he moved to New York City to attend the Juilliard School, but left the program after two years.
