    'Spartacus' star Whitfield dies of lymphoma at 39



    LOS ANGELES -- Andy Whitfield, the 39-year-old star of the cable series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand," has died.
    Manager Sam Maydew says Whitfield died Sunday of non-Hodgkin Lymphoma in Sydney, Australia.


    Whitfield's wife Vashti in a statement called her husband a "beautiful young warrior" who died on a "sunny Sydney morning" in the "arms of his loving wife."



    Whitfield - who was born in Wales and lived in Australia - was a virtual unknown when he was cast as the title hero in "Spartacus," a hit original series for the Starz network that made waves with its graphic violence and sexuality.


    Whitfield was preparing for the second season when he was diagnosed 18 months ago.


    In January the network announced that another Australian actor, Liam McIntyre, would take over the role.

    Oh man And so young too, it didn't look good when the cancer came back and he had to drop out of Spartacus - Feel for his kids and family.

    Now this one really is tragic. Damn. 39 is WAY before his time. R.I.P. and my sympathies to his family and friends.

    That is so incredibly sad - he was way too young, and with young children. I thought he'd beat it, as I think Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma has a pretty decent recovery rate (Isn't that what the guy from "Dexter" had as well?), but it didn't look to good when it came back and hit him again. RIP

    This is just awful. Terrible thing with Lymphoma & leukemia is that it usually returns and you are too compromised from the last battle to continue

    How sad, I was just wondering how he was. RIP Andy.
