Spartacus star Andy Whitfield’s journey after being diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is chronicled in the documentary Be Here Now from Oscar nominee Lilibet Foster (Speaking in Strings). Grab some tissues before watching the trailer for the film which was made with the full support of Whitfield and his family. The documentary was funded via Kickstarter, earning the distinction of being the third most successful documentary funded by that method. Tugg and Be Here Now Productions are releasing Be Here Now in theaters beginning on April 8, 2016.
