'Buffy's Spike Actor James Marsters Says He's 'Heartbroken' to Learn About Charisma Carpenter's Abuse Claims

Another Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast member is breaking their silence on the alleged abuse that happened on set of their show.

James Marsters, who played Spike on Buffy, took to his Instagram on Friday (February 12) to send support to former co-star Charisma Carpenter after she came forward with allegations of abuse and misconduct against show creator Joss Whedon.

“While I will always be honored to have played the character of Spike, the Buffy set was not without challenges,” the 58-year-old actor wrote. “I do not support abuse of any kind, and am heartbroken to learn of the experiences of some of the cast. I send my love and support to all involved.”

Amid the ongoing controversy, Buffy fans are calling out these two former cast members for not publicly addressing the situation.
