Exclusive Interview: ANDY WHITFIELD BARES IT ALL IN 'SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND'
The actor reflects on the making of the hit Starz action-drama
As SPARTACUS: BLOOD AND SAND nears the end of its inaugural season, iF Magazine thought this would be a fine time to talk with the man himself, Andy Whitfield. In case you haven’t seen the newest Starz drama, SPARTACUS chronicles the story of the legendary gladiator. Stretched out over thirteen episodes, SPARTACUS has gained a reputation for being heavy on the gore and heavy on the sex.
Whitfield has taken the time to answer a few questions about filming the first season, and dealing with life onstage in a loincloth.
[Editor's Note: This interview took place before the recent announcement that Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma and will be undergoing treatment before Season Two starts shooting].
