Interview with Ellen Hollman from AccidentalSexiness
Spartacus: Vengeance: Ellen Hollman talks about Saxa's connection to Gannicus
It is no secret that I have a slight obsession with Spartacus: Vengeance, specifically when it comes to the topic of Gannicus (Dustin Clare)! In season two, we have yet to catch a glimpse of our beloved hero from Gods of the Arena but I hear whispers that he is set to return in episode 5. (I can confirm I have seen episodes 1-4 and Gannicus is not in any of them)
And only two episodes later, we can expect Saxa (Ellen Hollman) to make her presence known to Spartacus (Liam McIntyre) before setting her pretty eyes onto Gannicus. Who can blame her right?
I had the pleasure to speak to Ellen last week and she promises her character will not just be strong but also vulnerable. Sounds a lot like Melitta no? There might be a comparable love match between them after all!
So far from what we have heard about Saxa we know she is ?the first female German warrior to join the ranks of Spartacus. She?s fierce, fun, intelligent and a force to be reckoned with on the battlefield. In other words, she will kick your ass and have a laugh about it later.? But I wanted to know what Ellen could tell us about Saxa that we have not heard already.
