Whitfield played the lead role of Spartacus in the first season of the Starz series.
After filming the first season of Spartacus, Whitfield was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in early 2010. The Welsh actor immediately sought out treatment and was declared cancer-free a few months later, only to have it relapse. Whitfield passed away in 2011.
The documentary chronicles Whitfield’s diagnosis and treatment. It is set for limited release in April.
