Spartacus Actress Calls It Quits, Won't Return For Next Season

| Filed under: TV News

spartacus actress quits the show

Last month, we were happy to report that Starz' prequel series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena started out strong, despite star Andy Whitfield's departure from the show.

Now, it looks like another cast member, Lesley-Ann Brandt, will be leaving the show.

Brandt has reportedly quit the show to pursue other pilot projects, and her character Naevia will be recast for the show's upcoming season, Spartacus: Vengeance, which will premiere on Starz in late 2011.

Spartacus fans really seem to love this series, so we're thinking that they'll be able to handle the role being recast.

Do U watch the show? If so, who do U think would be good to take over the role of Naevia?

    Re: bring it – You cared enough to comment…

    What about Thandie Newton? I love this show.

    Doesn't matter if she's recast or not. Naevia ends up dying anyway so the new Naevia won't be around much. If they don't want to recast her they could kill her off screen. Alll I'm concern about is if the new Spartacus lives up to his role. I'll miss Andy and I hope he's doing good. I did hope Starz would hold and wait for Andy to get better, but I guess that wasn't possible.

    You need to update, Perez.
    Lesley-Ann tweeted that it is not true.

    Re: Caylen C – Not her…. too old! Might as well give a relative young unknown a chance on this one.

    Re: OctoberTuesday – How do you figure she's killed off? She's there for every episode in season one…definitely not killed off.
