I had a good time doing that. I um, uh, yeah, I learned about the secret of- of faking tears. I- I- I did, uh, the Buffy- I was all proud of myself because I- uh, um, uh- I was able to cry when I was supposed to cry, Spike was supposed to cry. And, uh, and during Millennium I was supposed to cry again, but I- I was too tired, because I was- I was in Canada and I had filmed a movie and I was really tired. I didn’t want to summon the tears. And they faked it, they put this little menthol in my eyes and the scene is much better when I faked it. The scene is incredibly better because I’m able to act everything else and not just like can I cry. So anyway, Millennium was great. Got my butt kicked by another girl. That’s like…that’s my type.

    Thanks for that. I hadn’t watched the Millennium episode for a long time.

    Interesting that James thought the scene was better for the faked crying, because he was tired and didn’t want to summon up the tears.

    “Got my butt kicked by another girl. That’s like…that’s my type.”

    Hee! Ain’t that the truth.
