Viva Bianca

Viva Bianca plays the young Roman noblewoman Ilithyia, in Spartacus: Blood and Sand, a Starz original action-adventure drama series, set in the brutal Roman gladiator era. Ilithyia engages in a subtle power struggle with Lucretia (Lucy Lawless), whilst admiring the attributes of the gladiators, particularly Spartacus.

Bianca says Ilithyia was "born and bred to enjoy incredibly elite taste, and is extremely ambitious in terms of maintaining her status and public image."

Since graduating from Western Australia Academy of Performing Arts with the best actress award, Bianca has established a career that moves between film, television and theater.

She recently starred in the lead role of Ophelia in the psychological thriller Bad Bush, directed by Sam Genocchio which is now in release in Australia and played Becky in Accidents Happen, a comedy starring Geena Davis and directed by Andrew Lancaster. She has had guest leads on Australian television series including All Saints, Blue Heelers, Marshall Law and The Strip. Her theater experience includes Twelfth Night, Dancing at Loughnasa, Queen C and This is A Play.

Now Sydney-based, she grew up in Melbourne, the daughter of film composer Cezary Skubiszewski, whose scores include director Gillian Armstrong's upcoming Death Defying Acts, starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Guy Pearce.
