Craig Walsh-Wrightson stars in "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena" on Starz as Solonius, reprising the role from "Spartacus: Blood and Sand." Solonius is Batiatus's (John Hannah) close friend, who, like Batiatus, would like to gain political footing in Capua. 

During post-graduate studies in Modern History, New Zealand-born Craig Walsh-Wrightson joined public broadcasting as a documentary-maker, and then was headhunted by a national advertising agency as a writer and television producer.

At age 24, Walsh-Wrightson co-founded January Productions, Australasia's first multi-media creative consultancy and production house. With Walsh-Wrightson as Executive Creative Director, his partnership morphed into a top national advertising agency, Campaign Advertising Group, which morphed again into Saatchi & Saatchi New Zealand (NZ).

Already an established voice-over artist and narrator before he took up screen acting, Walsh-Wrightson has also created dozens of radio and television commercial soundtracks as a music composer, lyricist and producer. He has written, produced (and occasionally directed) over 100 major commercials. He was featured as a primetime television show presenter/anchorman/interviewer.

Walsh-Wrightson is a four-time AXIS Award winner (the NZ equivalent of the U.S. advertising industry's 'Clio' awards) as a writer, art director, producer, and film director.

Walsh-Wrightson has shared Best Documentary honors in the NZFTA Awards (equivalent to the U.S. Oscars) as narrator of Television New Zealand's 6 x 90-minutes millennium production "Our People. Our Century."

Since moving to Auckland in 2006, Craig Walsh-Wrightson has guested on various television series, but Solonius, in his own words, "really is a character to die for." And he did. And then he lives again in "Spartacus: Gods of the Arena."
