Liam McIntyre (born 8 February 1982) is an Australian actor best known for playing the lead role in the Starz television series Spartacus: Vengeance[1] and Spartacus: War of the Damned.

Career[edit]

McIntyre began his career acting mainly in short films, before performing guest roles in Australia's popular television series Rush and Neighbours. McIntyre made his US television debut guest starring in an episode of the award nominated HBO mini-series The Pacific.

After his 2010 diagnosis of Non-Hodgkins lymphoma, original Spartacus lead actor Andy Whitfield took what was intended to be a temporary break from filming the title role for the Starz television series. Whitfield later withdrew from the role entirely when his cancer recurred, prior to his death. He was then replaced by McIntyre, who performed the title role for the remaining two seasons.[2][3] Production on the second season of Spartacus resumed in the fall of 2011 and the series premiered on 27 January 2012.[4]

McIntyre made his feature film debut appearing alongside Kellan Lutz in The Legend of Hercules, in the role of Sotiris.[5]

On May 4, 2014, McIntyre starred in the Channel 7 thriller The Killing Field.[6][7]

Personal life[edit]

McIntyre was born in Adelaide, Australia. In 2010 he began dating Australian singer and actress Erin Hasan, who starred in the original Melbourne and Sydney productions of musical Wicked as the Glinda standby. They were engaged in December 2012, and married on 5 January 2014.[8][9]
