"Spartacus: Blood and Sand" Star Andy Whitfield Has Cancer

Posted: March 10th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Spartacus: Blood and Sand" Star Andy Whitfield Has CancerSubmit Comment
Entertainment Weekly is reporting that actor Andy Whitfield, who is starring in the Starz drama "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

He will begin treatment immediately in New Zealand, but as a result, production on the second season of "Spartacus" has been delayed. It was originally scheduled to get underway later this month.

Whitfield's cancer was detected early and his prognosis is good. "I'm receiving excellent care, and am feeling strong, positive and determined with an army of support behind me," Whitfield said in a statement.

Starz president Chris Albrecht said: "Our thoughts and prayers are with Andy. His health, of course, is our primary concern. He has our complete support during this difficult time."

"Andy Whitfield Has Cancer"

First Dexter now this guy. God, it seems like they're are getting younger and younger. The Big C is kicking some major ass lately. I don't really know the dude, but I hope he's OK. He was just on his way up it seems.

Just wondering...

@Eli - yep... he'd be a fine Cap.

Haven't seen Spartacus beyond the Kirk Douglas version.

So... did this guy sleep with Loslag, or what?

All the best Andy! Kick that sh*tty disease (no, not VinDandy this time) to the curb! Give it hell!

Taco, you're joking right? Cheesy as hell?? That show is f*cking outstanding man, so gritty and a real solid portrayal of that time period and the cast is bangin' Not to mention that it's shot like 300 and Gladiator made a baby.....an angry baby!

@Starkiller - Taco is also the one that posted 'First' on another post... what do you expect?

@Starkiller: Agreed. Total AWESOMENESS!!! I only saw the 1st episode though, but you can tell when a show is gonna be good. On another note I'm glad they actually brought back Southland. It's another good ass show

Yeah...Taco is quite the Rusty c*nt

I really don't know why but I f*cking love the show! The women extras are absolutely retarded in the crowds of the gladiator events and the over abundance of blood at times (ninja assassin style) are the few cheesy parts that have nothing to do with the story or real actors.

On another note, Go f*ck yourself taco

i agree with you guys. spartacus is one of the best shows i've seen in a long time. the fact that it stays true to the lifestyles of ancient rome is fantastic.. plus since the show is loosely based on a real-life gladiator from back then is awesome too.
