Sad day on this one. I liked the show a lot.
ANDY Whitfield, the 39-year-old star of the cable series Spartacus: Blood and
Sand, has died in Sydney.
Manager Sam Maydew said Whitfield died yesterday of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
Whitfield’s wife, Vashti, called her husband a “beautiful young warrior” who
died on a “sunny Sydney morning” in the “arms of his loving wife”.
Whitfield – who was born in Wales and lived in Australia – was a virtual
unknown when he was cast as the title hero in Spartacus, a hit original
TV series that made waves with its graphic violence and sexuality.
