Filming has already begun in New Zealand for the international sword and sandal hit-show, Spartacus and the cast is adding Anna Hutchison (Cabin in the Woods, Underbelly: Tale of Two Cities), Jenna Lind (Burning Man) and Gwendoline Taylor (Go Girls) as regulars in the upcoming season.
Here is the description of their roles as provided by Starz:
Laeta (Hutchison) is the privileged wife of a Roman dignitary who becomes entangled in the struggle against Spartacus. Her life and those of the ones she loves are forever changed by the conflict.
Kore (Lind) is a loyal slave to Marcus Crassus (Simon Merrells), the Roman tasked to bring an end to Spartacus and his rebellion. Her deep feelings for her master will be sorely tested by spiraling events.
Sibyl (Taylor) is a beautiful young slave rescued from Roman cruelty. Now free, she will embark on a journey that will touch the lives of key leaders in the rebellion.
It appears these ladies are going to be heavily integrated in the mix this season and have themes of devotion, freedom, and enslavement as it pertains to the world around Spartacus who wants to build an army for war. The Starz original series has never had a shortage of hot men and women, but Hutchison, Lind and Taylor are certainly going to turn up the heat even more. Agron, Nasir, Saxa, Lugo, Crixus could all be fair game in Season 3. Will any of them fall? Quite possibly; if we know one thing about Spartacus, blood will be spilled.
Spartacus stars Liam J. McIntyre as the title character and is executive produced by Rob Tapert (The Grudge, Xena: Warrior Princess, and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Sam Raimi (Spider-Man and The Evil Dead), and Joshua Donen (The Quick and the Dead).
