Hey folks, many people have been asking how they can help Andy's family. Lucy has sent in the following note and way to help the family out - trust fund has been set up where you can donate to help out.
MESSAGE FROM LUCY LAWLESS
a trust fund has been set up for Andy's family. we are all keen to let Vashti know that her unwavering support of her husband's career was very much appreciated. Without her, Andy would never have left his career as a structural engineer to fulfill his dreams. She put her own career on hold to back him up. Filming schedules often leave the partner holding the baby 60 + hours a week for months on end. Andy's wife was a tower of strength through thick and thin. We want her to know how touched we were by his portrayal of Spartacus and how grateful we are for her part in it.
The most important thing for Andy is that his family are supported in their future and so a facility has been established for anyone who wishes to contribute.
