Hello friends!

As you are well aware, the saga of Spartacus has come to an end - a saga that began with Our Champion Andy. Here are three behind-the-scenes photos of Andy from the production of “Spartacus: Blood and Sand.”

In photo one, we have Andy checking his cell phone while on break between takes; in photo two, Andy and his good friend Jai Courtney (Varro) are being made camera-ready. In the third photo, Andy is joined by Nick Tarabay (Ashur) and John Hannah (Batiatus) on the set of Andy’s last episode in ‘Spartacus’ - the season one finale entitled, “Kill Them All.”

Hope you enjoy.

You can head over to http://t.co/yQmWJmI75t for a profile on filmmaker Rob Tapert and the production journey of ‘Spartacus’, in photos.

Gratitude.
