Lucy Lawless talks 'Spartacus' substitute
New York Post - 18 January 2011
While talking about Friday's premiere of "Spartacus" prequel, "Gods of the Arena," I had to take a moment and ask Lucy Lawless -- who plays the scheming Lucretia in both incarnations -- about yesterday's announcement that Liam McIntyre would be Andy Whitfield's replacement.
A word she hopes no one actually uses when referring to the situation.
"This was not a decision we made lightly. It hurt us to do it and Liam has some terribly big shoes to fill," she told PopWrap exclusively. "We don’t expect him to be Andy, no one could, but he’s going to be Liam. And we believe that he’s the right guy to reimagine that role and keep this series on fire."
