Spartacus actor "in the dark" over Caesar spin-off

SpartacusToddNew Spartacus recruit Todd Lasance says he is “in the dark” over whether his character will be getting a spin-off series.

The former Home and Away actor is playing Caesar in the final instalment of Spartacus: War of the Damned and it was reported last year that a spin-off was a possibility for the character.

“Honestly, we haven’t had any specific conversations about where Caesar will go or what will happen in the future,” says Lasance. “I’m kind of in the dark. But it’s certainly something I’d look at if the opportunity presented itself.”

He went on to say that his character makes quite an entrance to the show, bathing with three naked women in episode two.

“I was aware of it,” Lasance says of the scene. “I didn’t know exactly how it would be playing out. To be honest the whole initial first week of shooting was one of the scariest moments of my life.

“You’re not only stepping onto an established show, but also the magnitude of who I was about to play and what I was about to undertake was kind of setting in at that point. It was a little awkward going into that. I think that was my second scene that I shot.”
