I’m not going to go into details, mostly because I’m not in the mood for the macabre, but it has been confirmed that Andy Whitfield has passed away.
Andy, who was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in March of last year was in Sydney, Australia, surrounded by family and friends when he passed.
I was looking forward to seeing him recast as Spartacus some time in the future but it looks like Australian actor Liam McIntyre will hold that role indefinitely.
My thoughts go out to his family. May he rest in peace.
