The new star of Spartacus: Gods of the Arena says the show’s sex scenes take as much time to choreograph as the fight scenes.
“They treat it very professionally,” Dustin Clare, who plays Gannicus, tells TV Guide. "It’s a choreographed piece, in the same way as a fight scene, a sex scene is also choreographed. We all know our choreography going into it, and it makes it easy and quick to shoot.”
Sex is a huge part of the Spartacus shows — gay, straight, with multiple people. It’s one of the few shows on TV in which men and women are shown equally undressed.
The Spartacus: Blood and Sand prequel was created after that show’s star, Andy Whitfield, fell ill with cancer. He will not be returning to the series and his role has been recast.
