Steven's interview with Assignment X is now online. It's the second part of his interview series with Assignment X. Some interesting tidbits that we find out are:
Is the show going to be called Spartacus: Vengeance? (Gods of the Arena had a working title of House of Batiatus before they changed it to Gods of the Arena). We also find out how many episodes there will be in Season 2.
On Lucy's return as the former Domina of the Ludus - she is going to be spitting mad at the world; she's lost her beloved Quintas, her baby and her position, not to mention that poke in the belly that wouldn't make anyone happy. The great thing for Lucy fans is that she will have a MAJOR role in the show! YES! As it should be because Lucy is INCREDIBLE as Lucretia. In my opinion this is Lucy's best work and she truly SHINES.
My favourite director, Michael Hurst, is back! He is such a phenomenal actor and director. I'm stoked about that!
Viva Bianca is back! Oh heavens she is SO bad and SO good :)
