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.

So, you may have noticed I've been quite busy for the last month or so (OMG I tweeted sooo much!), & as a result, there were quite a few of James' French interviews that I didn't have the time to post here. I RTed them over on my Twitter, so if you follow me there, you probably caught them, but, like I said, I tweeted a lot, so you may have missed some, even if you do follow me! So, see below for all of James' interviews from his visit to France that haven't been posted here individually. I've also included any videos that were posted to YouTube further down.

Marvel's Runaways and superheroism: a meeting with actor James Marsters

For those who have watched a lot of television as a kid, the name of James Marsters will inevitably be on the side of Buffy fans against vampires, which he marked with his role as Spike. Years later, the actor regularly flirts with pop-culture, especially the superheroes. He currently plays Victor Stein , one of the bad parents in Runaways adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona .

While Season 2 of Runaways started broadcasting in France on Syfy , and the day before its presence at the 27th Paris Manga Sci-fi Show , James Marsters devoted a little of his time, in an interview conducted jointly with the Site Pix-Geeks . To discover below, and good reading!

Disclaimer: some spoilers on season 2 may be present! You are warned.

Hello James. This is not the first time we see you in the super-heroic register. You went through Smallville, and you also did animation with The Super Hero Squad Show or Ultimate Spider-Man. Is there something special between the superheroes and you?

I think there are real heroes in life. Anyone who sacrifices his comfort, safety or goals for the good of someone else is a hero. There is something very beautiful in these artists who come to break the screen with superhero movies, talking to the public. " I see you, I know what you do is precious, when you sacrifice your own comfort for another person, that's good Oh, by the way, here's a cloak, put it on, and we'll fly for 1h30 and celebrate together what you do. "There is something very beautiful about it.

What brought you to the Runaways series?

I did not know the Runaways! I got a call to audition for Victor Stein , who was described as a bad Elon Musk - which I found interesting! I had time to think about it by going to the audition - because you need an hour and a half in Los Angeles - and I wanted to improvise for this audition. I looked at the script and told them to turn, explaining that I was going to play Victor Stein talking to his employees one morning, and I started.

" Wake up everybody, NASA called and they need help, the mission for Mars has a problem, and the problem is feces.The mission is going to take three months, they have to circulate continuously. water and air in the capsule.They have found how to do everything, but they do not find how to get the water from the faeces.The coffee is offered, and I need an interesting idea for tomorrow morning. do not talk about heating the thing is to get the water, any caveman can do it and it costs a lot too much energy .. Find me something else.I do not have an interesting idea tomorrow morning - it does not have to be a solution, but it should interest me - then I'll fire someone, go! "

There was a big silence from the casting director, who then thanked me and I thought I had messed up the audition. Apparently, when they looked at the band, they had found their Victor Stein !

James Marsters On Runaways And Why Plumbers Are More Important Than Actors

by Guest
January 17, 2019 in TV

You’ll remember James Marsters as the vampire Spike in the cult hit Buffy The Vampire Slayer (and later Angel) – a role that earned him three Teen Choice nominations and three Saturn Awards from The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films.

He’s now starring in another hit series, Marvel’s Runaways, where he plays Victor Stein, who he described to AVClub as ‘Elon Musk if he was a murderer.’

We caught up with the actor on the set of season two, which is now first and only on Showmax in South Africa, to chat about why he feels like he sold out, why he believes the gulf that opens between parents and kids is inevitable, whether killing a teenager a year might be the moral thing to do if it stopped global warming, and why actors are less important than plumbers in the bigger scheme of things…

The Parents of ‘Runaways’ on Avoiding Evil Stereotypes

     December 27, 2018


Executive Produced by showrunners/writers Josh Schwartz & Stephanie Savage and Marvel’s Head of TV Jeph Loeb, the Hulu series Runaways is back for Season 2 with higher stakes and greater danger, as this group of teenagers who realized their parents were evil have now left their homes and are learning to live on their own and take care of each other while working to take down PRIDE. At the same time, PRIDE is looking to find their children, and a secret plan has been set in motion that might lead to betrayal from one of their own.

While at a junket held on the set for The Hostel, an underground dilapidated mansion that the runaways take shelter in this season, co-stars Angel Parker (“Catherine Wilder”), Ryan Sands (“Geoffrey Wilder”), Annie Wersching (“Leslie Dean”), Kip Pardue (“Frank Dean”), Brigid Brannagh (“Stacey Yorkes”), Kevin Weisman (“Dale Yorkes”), Ever Carradine (“Janet Stein”), James Marsters (“Victor Stein”) and James Yaegashi (“Robert Minoru”) spoke to a small group of outlets at roundtable interviews, and Brittany Ishibashi (“Tina Minoru”) spoke to Collider by phone, about the evolution for their characters, how the parents all share the common goal of getting their kids to come back home, exploring the family dynamics, the delicate dance of committing villainous acts, and avoiding evil stereotypes.
