It only took 18 months for cancer to claim the life of the beautiful Andy Whitfield. He died today from non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and leaves behind his wife, Vashta and a son,6 and a daughter, 3.
Andy was born in Wales but has been an Australian since his parents moved here in 1999. He acted in shows such as McLeod's Daughters, Packed To The Rafters and All Saints before landing the role of a lifetime - SPARTACUS.
Andy was a beautiful soul who handled his illness with grace and dignity. He will be greatly missed.
