Every now and again, an actor comes along that embodies the very essence of the role he is playing. With every spoken word, and every facial expression, he captures the spirit of the character. Andy Whitfield was one of those actors. His portrayal of Spartacus was nothing short of incredible, and even though his legacy is but a small body of work, the quality of it is immense. Andy died yesterday morning, a victim of lymphoma at the young age of 39. This is but a small tribute to a great actor, taken from this life way too soon. RIP Andy, you will be sorely missed.
