Steven Talks About Andy in EW Interview 25 February 2011

Steven is interviewed about the very exciting Season 2 of Spartacus called Spartacus: Vengeance. He was asked for an update on Andy's health:

'Spartacus' creator talks 'Gods of the Arena' finale, epic season two plans

Can you give fans an update on how Andy Whitfield is doing?

Last I heard he's doing great, fighting the good fight, very much concentrating on his health and family. It's a horrible thing, I wouldn't wish it on anybody. I have no doubt Andy will beat it. He's one of the strongest and most centered men I've ever met. He's very private, but I hear third-hand that he looks great and is in high spirits.

Hottest Legendary Warriors - Number 5 Andy Whitfield as Spartacus

45896 OriginalThe Wonderwall on MSN has a countdown of all the legendary warriors and Andy comes in #5

5. Spartacus

Portrayed By: Andy Whitfield in the TV series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand"

Origin: Legendary Thracian gladiator who led a slave uprising against the Roman republic. You can't be an average Joe when your role calls for constant barechestedness and sword swinging. Though Whitfield's illness caused him to be replaced in next season's "Spartacus," we expect he'll fight his cancer with the same strength as Spartacus himself.
