I am crushed. I loved Spartacus so much and mostly because of him. I was really hoping he could go in remission again. I'm so sorry for his family.

He was so wonderful as Spartacus: intense, dedicated, tough, passionate, determined.

This is truly sad. I was really hoping he will make it through.

A truly beautiful man, and always had a crush on his graceful skull and neck... There was a fragility in there that definitely made him different from the other 'boorish' Spartacus. Too young to die, RIP.

So sad :(

I lost a friend a few years ago to the same cancer who was a mother to three young kids.

He was a beautiful man, and by the statement from his wife, very loved.

RIP
