Cancer survivor ANDY WHITFIELD is to make his first public appearance since battling the disease at next week's Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California.
The Aussie star will join his Spartacus: Blood & Sand castmates to chat about the future of the hit TV franchise set in ancient Rome and co-star Lucy Lawless insists Comic-Con is a great place for his return.
She says, "I know he's gonna love every moment of it."
Whitfield, who plays gladiator slave Spartacus on the show, was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma earlier this year (10), resulting in a delay in production on the second series of the show, which is filmed in New Zealand.
He has now been given the all-clear after months of treatment - and he has already begun training to get back in shape for the physically demanding role, with plans to enrol in boot camp sessions this month (Jul10).
Whitfield is due to resume filming the drama in October (10).
