Riley was also the only character to have been accepted as part of the group by Buffy’s male friend, Xander Harris (Nicholas Brendon).
Usually, Xander would become jealous of Buffy’s other male connections, but he seemed to show respect towards Riley.
In an interview from back in 2018, he said: “It was one of my very first jobs, it was certainly my first big job.
“It was an amazing first job as they were such a nice group of people, they were extremely patient with me. I do wish I was a little more seasoned and mature at the time to realise how good it was.
“It was obviously a great thing to be a part of. It’s nice, it’s been fun that the people who have grown up with buffy have introduced it to their kids.”
Fans continue to admire the actor and his role, with one commenting: “Marc seems to be one of the most intelligent and down to earth actors with an ego in its proper place. And he is pretty darn cute to boot!! [sic].”
