Jonathan: (About James Marsters) I didn't meet James until... on Angel. And I was totally, totally amazed by this guy. His generosity, his love, and [James] really doesn't take anything for granted. He's a really sincere man, and I was really impressed to see him so keen and levelheaded after so many years.
