Spartacus Without Andy Whitfield?


Oh my goodness! I just found out that Andy Whitfield has cancer and won't be returning to star in the second season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. What terrible news! He is a great actor and was definitely the main reason we watched and truly enjoyed the show. He was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma in March, and is resuming an aggressive treatment plan to help fight it. I'm sure he and his wife and family are more concerned about his health than anything else, but it must also be very disappointing to miss out on continuing his career at this point, when he is just starting to really "make it" because of Spartacus. I wish him the best in his treatment and recovery, and hope that he can return soon to doing those things he loves... and to our screens, of course!
