在"Spartacus: Blood and Sand"中飾演Spartacus的Andy Whitfield，
Andy Whitfield, star of Starz’s “Spartacus: Blood and Sand,” has been advised
by his doctors to immediately resume aggressive treatment for a recurrence of cancer,
as a result of which he will not be returning for the series’ second season,
which was tentatively set to air in September 2011.
“It’s with a deep sense of disappointment that I must step aside from
such an exceptional project as Spartacus‚ and all the wonderful people involved.
It seems that it is time for myself and my family to embark on another extraordinary journey.
Thank you sincerely for the support so far,” said Whitfield.
