Antonio Te Maioha stars in "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" on Starz as the gladiator Barca, reprising the role from "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." Barca is one of the most accomplished gladiators in theBatiatus (John Hannah) stable, prized by his master for his prowess inside the arena and his skill and discretion in the service of less noble missions outside of it. In "Blood and Sand," Barca, "the Beast of Carthage" serves Batiatus (John Hannah) as his bodyguard and hitman. 

Antonio Te Maioha was born in Auckland and grew up in Hastings, New Zealand. His Maori heritage comes from his father's side of the family, with both Ngapuhi and Waikato tribal affiliations. Years of busking and countless street performances piqued his interest in performing arts which led to him attending Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School in 1992. After graduation he joined acclaimed Maori theater project, Te Rakau Hua O Te Wao Tapu, run by well known New Zealand actor Jim Moriarty. From there he worked steadily in theater and was one of the ensemble cast of "Waiora," which successfully toured New Zealand, Hawaii and the UK over a two year period.

His television credits include roles in "Hercules, The Legendary Journeys," produced by "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" executive producers Rob Tapert and Sam Raimi. He then went on to play numerous roles in their "Xena: Warrior Princess" and recently resumed his work for Tapert playing 'Denfir', a guest role in two episodes of "The Legend of The Seeker." Other series he's appeared in include "Shortland Street," "Mataku," "Orange Roughies," and "The Lost World," all produced in New Zealand.

His film work includes a role in "Te Tangata Whai Rawa O Weneti" (The Maori Merchant of Venice), and he played the lead in award-winning short film "Taua."

He lives with his family in the surfing town of Raglan, on the west coast of New Zealand's North Island.
