I was gutted to hear this I loved the two seasons so far. My mate said "you'll sit around in your pants all day and watch it" and thats exactly what happened, it was that good.

What gets me is he was only 39, and in great physical condition. Horrible

This is unfortunate. I accepted he would not be coming back to the show, but I was really hoping he would pull through.

Finished: Too Much Love Will Kill You (working title), an original fiction novel. Working on: Second draft of Too Much Love, and the first draft of A Winter's Tale (working title).

Actually no.. He had Lymphoma cancer.


Still, tragic to die so young. RIP.

Just heard. What a tragic waste

"Death occurs when a lethal projectile comes together in time and space with a suitable target, in the absence of appropriate armour or protection”

I understand that, what I mean is he wasn't obese, seriously underweight or such. Look at him during Comicon 2010, you wouldn't think a year later he'd be dead. Tragic to die so.

So sad and so young. I was hoping he would make a recovery.

A shame that such a promising and talented actor died so young. And I agree, looking at him in Spartacus and at Comic-con, you really wouldn't have thought he was even remotely unhealthy. I was hoping he'd make a recovery and return to Spartacus.

This. The guy was an amazing actor, was hoping he'd be able to stick around a bit longer
