Dan Feuerriegel Opens Up About Playing Gay Gladiator On ‘Spartacus’


ohmyGAHH!! So if you’re familiar with Spartacus: War of the Damned on the Starz network, then you’re probably familiar with Agron, the gay character portrayed by Dan Feuerriegel.

If you’re not familiar with the show, then shame on you. Really.

Anyhoo, here’s Feuerriegel talking with Advocate magazine about his character:

What was your reaction when you found out you’d be playing a gay gladiator?

It didn’t make any difference to me. I would have played him the exact same way whether he was interested in women or men. His personality wouldn’t change. They just wanted me to make him really fierce and a hardass, but then open up and have a soft, sensual side when he’s alone with the people he loves. His sexuality doesn’t change that as far as I’m aware.”

Spartacus is known for serving a substantial amount of eye candy in each episode. How do you feel being on a TV series where the men are more objectified than the women?

“I’ve never really thought of it that way. [Laughs] Yes, on one hand you can see that the men are completely objectified, but  I just saw it as a great excuse to get fit and feel comfortable about myself and confident that I can get my shirt off and do all this sort of stuff in front of a massive audience.”
