Damn... I loved his performance as Spartacus in the series "Sand and Blood." The series pretty much is my guilty pleasure.

May he R.I.P.

Really sad news.

He was so hot and talented, too. Guess this shows cancer can really happen to anyone.

I've seen some episodes of SBAS, and it was rather good. Very violent and bloody and filled with sex :cln:

RIP. It's a shame that he died so young, but at least he was able to make his mark while he was here.
