As previously reported, actress Lesley-Ann Brandt has left Starz’s “Spartacus: Blood and Sand” TV show ahead of its Season 2 for greener pastures. This means, of course, that someone’s got to play the gorgeous slave, since she was one of the few characters that managed to survive the bloodbath of the Season 1 finale. So Starz has apparently been busy looking for a placement, and it looks like they’ve found her.
EW says actress Cynthia Addai-Robinson, who has appeared on shows like “Flash Forward”, “CSI: New York”, and “Numbers”, will step into Naevia’s curvy slave tunic for “Spartacus” Season 2. Here’s hoping Crixus still recognizes her when they finally meet again.
“Spartacus” Season 2, with Liam McIntyre standing in for former star Andy Whitfield, has already begun production for an early 2012 return to the airwaves.
