A very sad news therefore that the death of a young actor who had started to stand out in Spartacus. Shown between 2010 and 2013 by Starz in the United States, and OCS in France, the series focuses on the life of the famous gladiator. Francis Mossman appeared in several episodes of season 2 as Vitus. Subsequently, he found himself in one of the leading roles of the web series The Horizon, between 2013 and 2017, during about thirty episodes. An important program in Australia since it was the most watched web series in the country, and the most watched LGBT categorized web series in the world.
No doubt the actor had a bright future. Or at least the possibility of pursuing a good career in Australia. Although his name is little known in France, his face will certainly have marked the minds of Spartacus fans.
