Spartacus: War of the Damned – SDCC Interview with Manu Bennett

SpartacusWOtDNext up in our countdown to War of the Damned is Manu Bennett, one of the few actors who can say he’s made it through each and every season of the violent hit show.

Go behind the jump to check out the round table interview.

Crixus may have survived all the seasons, but he certainly hasn’t had it easy.  He fought a hard and bloody battle to the top of the ludus, only to be knocked down when Spartacus arrived. He found love with Naevia, only to have her torn away from him and sold into slavery by a spiteful Lucretia. But now he’s found her again, and it looks like they’ll be raising a bit of hell together.

Check out the interview below to hear Manu’s insights on where the characters are in this final season. He also talks a bit about Andy Whitfield, who portrayed Spartacus in Blood and Sand before losing his battle with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.



You can catch Crixus and the other former gladiators in what’s sure to be some bloody action when War of the Damned premiers on Friday, January 25th.
