AUSXIP Interviews Viva Bianca
"Ilithyia, The Bandit Princess Returns"
Interviewed by MaryD
10 January 2012
I had the pleasure of interviewing Viva Bianca in May 2010 just after Spartacus: Blood and Sand had ended. Viva stars as Ilithyia, wife to the Roman Legate Gaius Claudius Glaber, daughter of Senator Albinius, Frenemy to Lucretia and all round bad girl. We last saw Ilithyia closing the doors of Batatius' home and allowing her "friends" Batiatus and Lucretia to perish at the hands of Spartacus and his fellow gladiators or so she wished that would have happened. Ilithyia was dubbed The Bandit Princess on the Spartacus Blood and Sand set and now The Bandit Princess returns in Spartacus Vengeance. How will she cope and what is in store for this wild child? We find out from Viva what we can expect in 2012 as Spartacus makes a triumphant return to our screens. Viva has also been very busy in starring in a new Australian movie by Jon Hewitt called X.
