Here is the piece again for those who may have missed it, and for those who would just like to see it again and continue to spread Andy’s message far and wide, in loving memory of this brilliant man, who was beautiful in every way a person can possibly be.

Exclusive: Andy Whitfield Remembered by Co-Star in Moving PSA


via Entertainment Tonight Online:


Lucy Lawless is remembering her Spartacus: Blood and Sand co-star Andy Whitfield in this moving tribute created for the Stand Up 2 Cancer telethon.

Whitfield lost his battle with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on September 11th, 2011, but is clearly fondly remembered by both the cast and crew of the hit STARZ series.

You can watch Stand Up 2 Cancer Friday, September 7th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on both STARZ and ENCORE.

"No one is immune to cancer. It strikes unexpectedly, changing lives. We must stand united against this often devastating disease - a lesson the cast and crew of Spartacus learned, when we lost a dearly-loved friend far too early in his life. 

Andy Whitfield was a true champion, an amazing man and he gave his all to every aspect of his life, and it was an honor to know him.

Stand with me, and take a moment to remember Andy Whitfield, loving husband and father, terrific actor, and an inspiration to us all.”

- Lucy Lawless
