This is one of my favorite of all the Spike images - there is such a great element of the interior quality of the character, James Marsters was like a painter or sculpture creating a masterpiece in this scene.  Does he get questions about this specific scene and his process for playing these last minutes of Spike's life?  In "Chosen" the character was suppose to meet his death.

This also was always one of my absolute favourite image.
there is such a great element of the interior quality of the character Yes.
There are so many emotions on his face , in his eyes. His vulnerability mixed with a kind of hope and altogether resignation came straight to my heart .
I don't think he ever got many questions on this scene.

He was asked about the final bit of the scene when he is laughing as he burns. He said that is the way he responds to pain - He laughs.

I love to watch James because he uses all of himself to show emotion in a scene. Each tiny tick shows how the character is feeling. It is amazing.

thanks for stopping by and the information - I can certainly relate to that - sometimes life seems so hard - so impossible to change that one has to laugh or you would be sobbing instead.

Thanks for the information - this scene left such a mark on my heart that every time I really get back to the moment it makes my eyes water.

It a heart break for me to see what is being done with the magnificent story in the Season 8 comic book and frankly how all the comic books have imposed themselves on the character. Some of the earlier IDW stories were done well, but the latest batch have taken away so much. I hope that Brian Lynch can restore some grace and dignity to Spike - the character deserves much better than that "dumb down" treatment from Willingham. I hate the choice that was made to go from the early very clever Spike to the dopey version.
