Starz’ Spartacus is adding a trio of attractive newcomers for season 3.

Three actresses are joining the show’s cast for the next round, which follows Spartacus as his army spars with top Roman leaders.

New Zealand actress Anna Hutchison, who played a free-spirited temptress in Cabin in the Woods, will play Laeta, “the privileged wife of a Roman dignitary who becomes entangled in the struggle against Spartacus.”

Australia actress Jenna Lind (Underbelly II) plays Kore, a “loyal slave to Marcus Crassus (played by Simon Merrells), the Roman tasked to bring an end to Spartacus and his rebellion.”

And New Zealand’s Gwendoline Taylor (Go Girls) will play Sibyl, “a beautiful young slave rescued from Roman cruelty.”
