Two calendar years have elapsed since Spartacus: Blood and Sand premiered on Starz. The series quickly became a signature show for the upstart premium cable channel, which has long been overshadowed by competitors HBO and Showtime. The secret to Spartacus’ success? Fight sequences staged with the literal guts and gusto of Zack Snyder’s 300, political intrigue reminiscent of HBO’s Rome, and a stellar cast including Andy Whitfield, Manu Bennett, Peter Mensah, John Hannah, and Lucy Lawless.
We have interviews of the cast of Spartacus Vengeance during the red carpet premiere. The interviews include executive producer Steven DeKnight, Liam McIntyre (Spartacus), Lucy Lawless (Lucretia), Manu Bennett (Crixus), Peter Mensah (Oenomaus), Nick Tarabay (Ashur), Craig Parker (Glaber), Cynthia Addai-Robinson (Naevia), and Viva Bianca (Ilithyia).
This show is a great ride. The story and characters are complex mixed in with a bit of violence. Ok alot of violence. Check out what the stars had to say below.
Spartacus Vengence premieres January 27th on Starz.
