Andy Whitfield's Biography

In July 17, 1974, Andy Whitfield was born in Amlwch, Wales. His parents Robert and Pat Whitfield then moved to Australia in 1999 with his sibling Laura.


Moved to Sydney, Australia after graduating the University of Sheffield, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England for Engineering.


He started acting and modeling while working as an engineer and building inspector for a consulting agency.


In 1999, Andy Whitfield married Terrica Smith-Whitfield (1999–2003) and later toVashti Whitfield and is father to two wonderful children.


He attended Screenwise Film & TV School for Actors, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.


He has appeared in several Australian television series, such as Opening Up, All Saints, The Strip, Packed to the Rafters and McLeod's Daughters. He gained his first prominent role in the Australian supernatural film Gabriel.


Still working his day job as an engineer, he sought a part as a Roman gladiator in ‘Spartacus: Blood and Sand’ and landed the lead role.


Whitfield starred in the 2010 television series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, which is filmed in New Zealand. He plays the part of Spartacus, a soldier condemned to fight as a gladiator and who ultimately leads a rebellion against the Romans.


Whitfield also appears in the upcoming Australian thriller The Clinic starring opposite Tabrett Bethell (of Legend of the Seeker fame), set for release in 2010, which was shot in Deniliquin.


In March 2010, Whitfield was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma, beginning treatment immediately in New Zealand. This delayed production of season two of Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Whitfield expects to return for a second season.


In June 2010 it was announced that Whitfield completely finished his treatment and was given a clean bill of health. Regretfully he was expected to be back on the set of Spartacus: Blood and Sand by October but a setback caused delay in filming.

September 2010, it was announced that Whitfield's cancer had returned and he would not be returning for the second season.

Whitfield will make a brief appearance in the prequel mini-series Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, scheduled to premiere in January 2011. *

Once more, Andy is in battle but this fight will be the biggest of his life as he undergoes a second aggressive treatment for his cancer.


(Please remember to keep those prayers continually interceding for Andy and his family.)
