The following is an excerpt from the interview in which the actor discusses the series’ progression over the course of its three seasons.
“Agron came in about halfway through the first season - ‘Blood and Sand.’ He was sold into slavery with his brother - Ande Cunningham’s Duro. He is a very passionate and quite angry character. He is very protective of his brother and certain events occur which cause him to join Spartacus’s revolution.
“He is one of the gay characters and he has a very intense relationship throughout the entire three seasons which has been closely watched and has a great following. And that is fantastic. But he is Spartacus’s right-hand man and a bit of a hothead.
“I remember coming into the first season and they were just flying by the seat of their pants basically. Everything was new and it kind of got released and had a small following. As time went by, it generated this great cult following. The second season obviously had to top the first and then the third season had to top it even more.
“By the end of the third season, everybody knew exactly what they were doing. It just kept getting bigger and bigger and the technology just kept getting better and better. Actors, special effects guys and directors started to really want to push the boundaries as far as they could with what the budget allowed and I think that they did a fantastic job.” - Dan Feuerriegel
