Andy Whitfield: Dead at 39

Andy Whitfield, star of Spartacus: Blood and Sand, died on Sunday (September 11) in Sydney, Australia, USA Today reports.

The 39-year-old actor lost his battle to non-Hodgkin Lymphoma after an eighteen month battle with the disease.

Andy‘s wife said in a statement that he died on a “sunny Sydney morning” in the “arms of his loving wife.”

Andy was a small time actor until he was cast in the hit Starz series. In January, it was announced that Liam McIntyre would take over for Andy‘s role in the series.

Our deepest condolences go out to Andy’s family and friends.
