JOIN THE CAST OF "SPARTACUS: WAR OF THE DAMNED" AS THEY TAKE YOU THROUGH GLADIATOR TRAINING
Prior to the start of production on "Spartacus: War of the Damned," the cast and stunt performers convened for a month to go through vigorous training to get into Gladiator shape; preparing for the extensive action sequences featured in every episode of the final season. "Spartacus: War of the Damned" will premiere January 2013.
To get ready for the epic conclusion of Spartacus, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Simon Merrells, Dustin Clare, Ellen Hollman, Jenna Lind and Todd Lasance completed their final Gladiator Training, solidifying this group of gladiators to an army, ready to defeat a Roman Legion. Also featured is Key Fight and Stunt Supervisor, Allan Poppleton.
"Spartacus: War of the Damned," currently in production in New Zealand, takes place following the defeat of Roman commander Gaius Claudius Glaber. Spartacus and his men have amassed major victories against the Romans after the Battle of Vesuvius. These victories have not only forged the legend of Spartacus, but have greatly increased the ranks of the rebellion slaves to more than 30,000. Rome is indeed beginning to tremble at the threat Spartacus now represents.
"Spartacus: War of the Damned" sees the return on Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Dustin Clare (Gannicus), Dan Feuerriegel (Agron), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia) and Ellen Hollman (Saxa). This year, Todd Lasance joins the cast as Gaius Julius Caesar, along with Simon Merrells, who will be playing Marcus Crassus and Anna Hutchison as Laeta.
