Long before Nathan Fillion played mystery writer Rick Castle on Castle and even in a time before he was Captain Mal Reynolds on Firefly, he played an evil preacher named Caleb who worked for the “First Evil” on the final season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
Fillion fans still cherish his time on the cult classic and are always asking him questions about Buffy. And on July 10, Nathan was asked one of the biggest questions one can ask a Buffy fan — whether he’s Team Spike or Team Angel.
Angel was Buffy’s original love, but they were torn apart in the show’s third season when the angsty vamp realized that there was no future for them (and he went off to Los Angeles to start his own series).
Spike started off as Buffy’s foe, but his obsession with the slayer soon turned to love and in the show’s sixth season, he and Buffy had a steamy romance. They had their ups and downs, but by the end of the series, Buffy confessed her love for Spike (and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house).
So which Team is Nathan on?
“Spike, duh!” Nathan replied to the fan.
Good choice, Rick Nate!
The actor’s choice might be a bit personal considering Angel swooped in to save the day right before Caleb was going to kill Buffy. That distraction ultimately led to Buffy slicing the preacher in half. Ouch!
