Andy Whitfield, the star of the HOMOlicious series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma!
Poor thing!! So scary!!
The actor discovered the cancer during a routine check up, and production of the show's second season has been postponed while he undergoes treatment.
According to the Starz network, Whitfield was lucky enough to catch the cancer early, and it is completely treatable.
Our thoughts go out to Andy and his family during this difficult time, and we wish him a speedy and painless recovery!!
