Manu Bennett Chats With KAT About Female Gladiators on Spartacus: Vengeance

I like Spartacus better than most TV and movies. I tried to watch the IMMORTALS just couldn't. Anyway, I loved watching Andy Whitfield. Also the character development that is evident in the show makes it very addictive. "Crixus" played by Manu Bennett grew on me. I liked him when he first appeared on Spartacus Blood and Sand. Crixus was like a bull in a China shop. He was rough and wanted to be loyal Gladiator whereas Andy Whitfield's Spartacus had a nobility resonating about him. Crixus was realistically dealing with being a slave and his only hope of freedom was being a champion Gladiator. Spartacus wanted to get the hell out and reunite with his wife. He didn't care about being a gladiator he just used the situation as a means to gaining his life and his wife back. Once she was killed, revenge was all that he wanted. It was like these two men, Crixus and Spartacus were half but together they formed one whole man with both reason and passion. As Crixus said in a previous episode "in another life the two would have been brothers." These two battle each other and were the fiercest foes until they had to work together in the last seasons episode of Spartacus. Spartacus: Vengeance begins where they left off. Here is Manu Bennett who in real life is a noble man who takes care of his children and family then later I asked him about female gladiators on the new season...
