You might already be aware of my massive love for Spartacus while I cannot wait for the final chapter in the series Spartacus: War of the Damned to air, I wanted to share this incredible video of the cast and stunt performers going through vigorous training to get into Gladiator shape in preparation for the extensive action sequences that make every episode of Spartacus.
In the video, you will see new and returning cast members, Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Simon Merrells, Dustin Clare, Ellen Hollman, Jenna Lind and Todd Lasance. Also featured is Key Fight and Stunt Supervisor, Allan Poppleton.
That training looks incredibly intense and I totally wish I could have taken part of it!! Yes, I probably would have been exhausted, but it also looks like a lot of fun. One thing’s for sure, they do put a lot of work and sweat into it. But I’ll let you judge for yourself, check out the video below.
Spartacus: War of the Damned will premiere January 2013. The last season 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.
