James Marsters in MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS – Season 1 | ©2018 Hulu

In Season 2 of MARVEL’S RUNAWAYS, now streaming in its entirety on Hulu, the title characters have grown into their group moniker. Teenagers Alex Wilder (Rhenzy Feliz), Chase Stein (Gregg Sulkin), Gert Yorkes (Ariela Barer), Karolina Dean (Virginia Gardner), Molly Hernandez (Allegra Acosta), and Nico Minoru (Lyrica Okano) all have superpowers and/or extraordinary skills. Once alienated from each other, they’ve bonded upon discovering that Pride, the organization all of their parents are involved in, is evil and has a sinister agenda. The runaways have fled their privileged homes and are now hiding out in a mansion buried under Griffith Park in Los Angeles.

Not surprisingly, most of the runaways’ parents are freaking out and trying to find their offspring at the beginning of Season 2. Not so Victor Stein, played by James Marsters, Chase’s brilliant but abusive father. In Season 1, Victor had a brain tumor. This was cured by Pride founder Jonah (Julian McMahon). The cure made Victor at first extremely mellow, then extremely aggressive. Victor was finally shot by his wife Janet (Ever Carradine) to stop him from possibly killing Chase. So Victor starts Season 2 in a coma.

One major hint that Victor will come out of the coma at some point is the fact that Marsters is on the Pride headquarters set for a RUNAWAYS Q&A session. The actor has had many roles in films and television, but he’s perhaps still best known for his run as the vampire Spike in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and ANGEL.

James Marsters: "Buffy against vampires has always been more popular outside the United States"

Spike indulges in his vampire years. Meet.

Invited this weekend of the Paris Manga Sci-Fi Show with his former colleagues of Buffy against vampires (Anthony Head and Amber Benson), James Marsters returns for Première on the range this cult series, the role of Spike and the Dragonball Evolution disaster , in which he played Piccolo.

Whatever you do, we always bring you back to Buffy against the vampires and the character of Spike. But it's also because you cultivate this link, right?
Absolutely, because Buffy is a series that I can be proud of. We managed to get the idea that violence does not solve all the problems and that women can kick ass! At the time, I was producing and performing in Seattle and Chicago. I had just had my son and I was coming to Los Angeles just to earn money. The theater is great fun, but you win almost nothing. So I decided to sell myself on TV (Laughs.)

You had the feeling of selling yourself?
Oh yeah, completely! I had no illusions. It was the late 1990s and television was not as interesting as it is today, at least from my point of view. I remember telling my agent that I was not there to receive awards since I had them already at the theater. I had nothing to prove and I did not respect the people of this environment anyway (Laughs.) I was there for the dough! To buy diapers! And suddenly, I found myself in a series that spread a subversive message to more people than I could have imagined. We talked about strong subjects, like the difficulty of being homosexual during adolescence. It's more common on TV today, but we were in the first to talk about it. I think that'
