Thank goodness!

The super SEKSI Andy Whitfield, who was diagnosed with cancer in early March, is apparently completely finished with his treatment and has a clean bill of health!

Wonderful news!

His hit show, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, unfortunately had to work around his treatment for its second season, so producers chose to focus on a six episode prequel focusing on two other characters, played by Lucy Lawless and John Hannah!

Luckily, now that Whitfield is recovering they can segue right into filming the official new season! He's expected to be back on set by October!

We're thrilled to hear that he is doing so well!

Keep up the good work, and make sure you're taking care of yourself, bb!

    So glad Andy is feeling better. I hope he can take it a bit easy, but unlikely with the role of Spartucus. I love the show, but hope that it is not too much of a strain on him. He will do well in the future no matter what…think of all the great actors from The Wire. They are getting jobs now from all the recognition and their great acting. It will be the same for him.

    My husband likes the show for the fights but the plot is laughable many times and he cannot do anything else than loling when the soft sex parts happens. I woulnt mind watching the prequel, I like Lucy Lawless she is pretty and acts good.

    As a cancer survivor I know, you aren't truly considered cancer free for 10 years after your treatment is finished. He was diagnosed in March, he completed his treatment and the cancer is in remission but he is not considered cure or cancer free. These kind of stories, like Michael C. Hall (Dexter) 'beating' cancer are extremely premature and give the wrong idea to the general public.

    Oh Thank God! Cant Wait for Season 2!! I was so worried for him- He is super hot!!



  22. 22

    YES YES YES!!! This is amazing news!!! I love this show and am so happy Andy is back to par health! Can't wait for the prequel as well as season 2!
