Andy Whitfield 39, from the Starz series Spartacus dies of cancer. if you havent seen this show your missing out, it is a great series full of action and blood, think of HBO's Rome meets 300. it is definately an adult oriented show but well written and acted. i was hooked after the first episode. Andy Whitfield was the lead character Spartacus ,but was diagnosed with cancer after the first season. it onlt took 18 month after the diagnose for him to succomb to the disease, that was quick. my prayers go out to his family and friends. his talent will be missed.
