A lot of us are fans of the hit show “Spartacus: Blood and Sand”. It is similar to the action-packed, cinematography wonder of the ground-breaking film “300”. The star of the Showtime series, while appearing strong on the show, was quite ill behind the scenes in his private life.
Andy Whitfield died from Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma on Sunday in Sydney, Australia, where he lived. He was only 39 years old. According to E! News, he had been battling the debilitating disease for over a year.
The show will continue to air though and they have already replaced Whitfield with newcomer, Liam McIntyre. They bear a striking resemblance to one another, but in the case that you’re going to replace the star of a show, it would be a director’s dream to find someone that looks similar to the former star.
Check out the story here and meet Liam McIntyre. RIP Andy Whitfield.
