So sad he is married because I am truly in love with this man. :p Shame I'm married too. Haha

^Yes. Sadly, he has cancer and they had put the second season on hold and filmed Gods of the Arena to help buy him some time. He went into remission so they were going to resume shooting but then the cancer came back :( so Starz had 2 choices: to cancel the show or replace him. They are replacing him so the show can continue. It won't be the same without him though :(

My heart goes out to him and his family though. I hope he can fight this and we get to see him acting again soon.

Here's a couple more recent pictures...
