Spartacus will not be the only recast role on the second season of Starz's flagship series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. I hear Lesley-Ann Brandt, who played Naevia, body slave to Lucretia (Lucy Lawless) and lover of Crixus (Manu Bennett) on the first season of the show and in the prequel, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, has decided not to renew her contract and won't return for season 2. She just started a recurring role on CSI: NY and opted to also pursue broadcast pilots, which are currently casting. The part of Naevia, a fan favorite, will now be recast. Starz is known as being less restrictive in its actors contracts, which allowed Jane Lynch to leave Party Down when she was cast in Fox's Glee. Season 2 of Spartacus: Blood and Sand will also introduce Liam McIntyre as the new Spartacus. He replaced ailing original star Andy Whitfield. Production on the second season of the sward-and-sandal drama is slated to begin shortly.
How can she come back? Isn't she bleeding to death at the end with Batiatus?
Oh and i don't know if anyone has thought of this but who thinks Llithyia will haveSpartacus' child? I mean Lucretia did trick the two of them into having sex, and im pretty sure fromrecollectionthat she didn'tinterruptthem till after he finished.

It's been way too long since there's been any Spartacus scoop. Got anything for the new season? - Leslie NATALIE: Are you ready for a female gladiator? In Season 2, we'll meet a beautiful, vicious woman who is capable of giving any of the male victors a run for their aureuses (ancient Roman currency - thanks, Wikipedia!). She's a passionate competitor - both on the battlefield and in the bedroom.
