Spartacus’ Andy Whitfield Dies From Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma At The Age Of 39

A bit of bad news this morning as we have to report that Andy Whitfield who played Spartacus in the hit Starz series “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” has died at age 39. According to this manager Sam Maydew, Whitfield died yesterday in Sydney, Austrailia, a mere 18 months after being diagnosed with with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

Andy Whitfield as Spartacus

Whitfield was a virtual unknown until he was cast as the legendary Thracian slave in “Spartacus,” a role made famous by Kirk Douglas in the 1960 Stanley Kubrick film. The series turned out to be his big break and became a hit for Starz as well. Whitfield appeared in all 13 episodes of the first season and was preparing to start shooting on the second season when he got the diagnosis. Starz expected Whitfield to recover and in the meantime shot a six-part prequel, “Spartacus: Gods of the Arena,” that aired earlier this year with only a brief voiceover from the actor. But by January it had become apparent that Whitfield’s condition wasn’t getting better and the network announced Liam McIntyre would take over the role.

Another great talent gone too soon…
