Do you think being on Twitter helps? Why is it important to you to stay in touch with your fans?
"Thank god for Twitter! If I didn't have that and this was you know, 20 years ago, I imagine that there'd be a large group of people that thought I might just be cast because I'm evil, I play it so well or something.
My inspiration to be in touch with fans comes from a couple different experiences. One is the impression that Amber Benson had on me, a friend of mine who was on Buffy the Vampire Slayer for many years and then she and I did an independent film together that she produced. She was very accessible and kind of helped me understand on a larger level why it's a good thing. It's extra work, you know, it's more time that you put in -- but I don't know, it made a lot of business sense to me.
Then on the flip side, I had experiences as a young kid where I'd run into an athlete or something, and those who went the extra mile, who just took the moment to shake your hand and smile -- it stayed with me my whole life. I enjoyed hearing stories of people who seemed so down-to-earth regardless of their good fortune, and I wanted to emulate that."
Does Adam really love Sharon?
"Unequivocally, he loves Sharon 100%. You can argue as much logic as you want about what Adam has done and what he is doing. But any of us who've ever been in love know that pragmatism and love are two completely separate entities. You can't make sense of why he's done some things or continues to hide others. You can't argue: 'Well, if he loves her so much, why doesn't he let her know Faith is alive? Why doesn't he put Faith back in her arms?' It just becomes so complicated and convoluted as time goes on.
