Today I learned the sad news that Andy Whitfield has passed away.
As some of you may know, Andy Whitfield played the title character in the first season of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Further, you may know this show, and Andy in particular, was the inspiration for Enslaved.
Andy had to step down from leading man duties after the first season due to a diagnosis of non-Hodgkins lymphoma. Sadly, he has lost this battle.
Andy, thank you for inspiring me. You have affected my life tremedously and I hope you are in a safe, better place, free from any pain.
