This caught me off guard this evening. A sad ending to a sad story.

Wow. And 39? Way too soon.

That is a surprise...I knew he had Lymphoma ("delayed" season 2 of Spartacus because of it) but didn't think it would happen that quickly. Very sad.

I haven't watched Spartacus, but this is still a very sad story. That's too young to die, no matter what of.

My thoughts go out to his friends and family.

Everything about it sucks. Poor guy has a hit show, great physique and everything and bang, that's that. Terrible shame.

I'm a big fan of the Spartacus shows and Andy Whitfield was excellent in the role. He looked destined to go on to great things as the show was gathering a lot of momentum and a big fan base.
He came across as a really nice guy off camera too. It's a massive shame.
