Spartacus [S1], played by Andy Whitfield

Spartacus was a Thracian warrior forced into the arena to fight as a gladiator.
Played in Season One by Welsh-born actor Andy Whitfield, who was diagnosed with cancer before Season Two filming began. After a course of treatment he was declared cancer-free, but a relapse forced him to give up the role which then went to Australian actor Liam Mcintyre.
Andy sadly died of non-Hodgkin lymphoma in Sydney, Australia, on 11 September 2011.
Crixus, played by Manu Bennett

Crixus is the former champion gladiator ousted by Spartacus who at a crucial moment came to his rival’s aid and facilitated the escape from Batiatus’s ludus. Crixus is looked up to by his fellow Gauls and is thus a crucial figure in Spartacus’ attempts to hold together the ethnically diverse group of rebels he commands. But Crixus burns for no higher cause than finding his lost love Naevia. If he can’t find and save the woman that was taken from him he’ll lose his reason for living and the rebellion will lose one of its fiercest fighters.

Lucretia [S1 - S2], played by Lucy Lawless

Lucretia is the Roman widow found alive in her ruined villa, having survived the bloody gladiator revolt that took the life of her husband, the gladiator owner Batiatus. The traumatic devastation that was visited upon her has upended her world and her mind struggles to adjust to a new reality. Where once she and her husband maneuvered to ascend the social ranks of the Roman hierarchy, Lucretia is now left alone to hang on and merely survive.

Ilithyia [S1 - S2], played by Viva Bianca

Ilithyia is the alluring and cunning wife of Glaber. Wanting nothing more than a life of comfort and upward mobility in Rome, she is dismayed to be bound to her husband’s unfortunate burden of extinguishing the rebellion in Capua. Returning to the city where she witnessed, and caused, so much bloody intrigue threatens to destroy the standing she has long thought rightfully hers.

Glaber [S1 - S2], played by Craig Parker (1)

Gaius Claudius Glaber is the Roman commander who condemned Spartacus and his wife to slavery. Now holding the high rank of praetor within the senate, Glaber must hunt down his former prisoner to put an end to the budding rebellion, to defuse the threat to the Republic
and fend off the political rivals that stand to outmaneuver him. It’s an objective he’d rather not leave Rome to carry out but if he can successfully put his capacity for ruthlessness and hatred for Spartacus to work he might win the glory and fame he’s always craved.
