Last year, “Spartacus” star Andy Whitfield passed away after a hard-fought battle with lymphoma. In an emotional interview, his wife, Vashti, revealed his final words to their two children, six-year-old Jesse Red and four-year-old Indigo Sky: “I am going to sleep now as my body won’t work any more. I am like a butterfly with broken wings,” he told the kids. “I will always be with you and will always be watching over you. I love you.”
Now, in the hopes of inspiring others, Andy’s battle with cancer will be made more public. After his diagnosis, Andy invited Oscar nominated filmmaker Lilibet Foster to document his family’s experience with the treatment. Foster is currently looking for fans to help with the funding of the project so that it can be released.
The documentary, titled “Be Here Now” after the matching tattoos that Andy and Vashti got after his diagnosis, follows Andy as he travels the world in search of treatment. It also pays tribute to his special romance with his wife and his unique outlook on his illness. Watch the trailer below.
