On January 21, 2011 we will see the premiere of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, the prequel to the hugely successful Spartacus Blood and Sand. Before Spartacus struck down his first opponent in the arena, there were many gladiators who passed though the gates onto the sand. "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena," the highly anticipated prequel to Starz' hit series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," tells the story of the original Champion of the House of Batiatus: Gannicus (Dustin Clare) in a more ruthless time before Spartacus' arrival where honor was just finding it's way into the arena.

In this world we will also meet Diona, a slave. I interviewed Jessica Grace Smith who plays the role of Diona and we find out more about this young actress.
