ANDY WHITFIELD HAS LYMPHOMA - "SPARTACUS BLOOD AND SAND" STOPS SHOOTING!

Shocking news! "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" lead star Andy Whitfield has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and since he will begin treatment immediately in New Zealand the shooting of the popular show has come to a halt. Whitfield has discovered the cancer during a routine checkup but his doctors have stated his condition is very treatable, and was detected in its early stages. The second season, which was renewed even before the first season aired, was scheduled to begin shooting shortly in New Zealand, but it has been postponed to accommodate Andy's treatment. "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" has been a breakout success for the Starz network, and has already gathered a lot of fans. HOLLYWOOD SPY hopes they will continue with the successful airing, and that Andy will come back healthier and better than ever.

  10. You are in my heart and thoughts Ande. Get strong and come back to Spartacus as there is no one else that can play that role other than you. You are an amazing actor. Im a new fan and it was spartacus that drew me to your talent. I continue to praise your skills and hope that the producers of the show pull out of their dicision to cast Liam McIntyre as your replacement. Fans will drop if that happens. May god give you strength. Your a warrior. God bless.
