Starz has released a new behind-the-scenes featurette for Spartacus: War of the Damned, the final season for this hit series, which debuts January 2013. Before production begins every year, main cast members undergo one month of rigorous training, to get in shape for all the intense fight sequences they must endure. Watch as stars Liam McIntyre, Manu Bennett, Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Simon Merrells, Dustin Clare, Ellen Hollman, Jenna Lind and Todd Lasance prepare for upcoming episodes by participating in the Gladiator Boot Camp!
Spartacus: War of the Damned, currently in production in New Zealand, 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), Daniel 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.
