So nice to see the network standing so strong and supportive in honor of this incredible tragedy.
After Spartacus: Blood and Sand star Andy Whitfield lost his battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma early last month, his show's network, Starz, has released this touching tribute to his life.
Please watch (above).
President and CEO Chris Albrecht says in a statement:
"We are deeply saddened by the loss of our dear friend and colleague, Andy Whitfield. We were fortunate to have worked with Andy in `Spartacus' and came to know that the man who played a champion on-screen was also a champion in his own life."
May his memory continue to live on with his family, friends, loved ones, and fans for years and years to come.
R.I.P., Andy. You will be missed.
