TJ Scott’s “In The Tub” Photobook Available for Pre-order

As I’m sure most of you remember, back in February/March we were able to help out TJ Scott with his Kickstarter project, to get his “In The Tub” photobook into publishing. For those of you who couldn’t take part in the campaign back then, here is good news for you! The book is now available for pre-order on Amazon, as the regular or the special edition (which contains 48 extra pages of slightly more artfully risqué photos from the shoots).

TJ Scott has been behind the lens as director of numerous television series, including XENA and Spartacus. After his mother’s fourth round with breast cancer found its way to her bones and lungs, TJ decided to wage his own war on cancer the only way he knew how – by raising funds. He donated his unwavering artistic eyes and all of the actors, musicians and celebrities donated their time to this title created strictly to raise funds for breast cancer research. Each person was photographed in his/her own unique manner in a tub. 100% of the profits are going to Breast Cancer Research.

You can check out Ellen’s “In The Tub” photos in our gallery as well as on TJ’s Flickr account.

myFanbase Interview with Ellen Hollman

May, 2013 | Ellen Hollman earned herself a place in the hearts of “Spartacus” fans by portraying the Germanic warrior Saxa. In our interview Ellen talks about preparing for this strong, physical role, working with her castmates and how the “Spartacus” cast and crew keep the memory of Andy Whitfield alive.

1. Saxa is an exceptionally strong female character who made a great impact on the viewers. Had you ever expected such a huge response and what will stay with you from the experience of playing her for the rest your life?

It’s a rare honor and privilege to be able to have such a strong, physical role to play as a woman. It’s heartwarming to see such a favorable response from the audience as I gave my absolute all to Saxa. I can promise you that a piece of that sassy, Germanic warrior will always be with me.

2. Saxa is such a fierce warrior who easily takes on any Roman soldier. Did you do a lot of research about if there really were female warrios like her in the Servile War? 

I assumed that for a female fighter to be accepted by her fellow male counterparts she would have to be just as (if not more) rude, brash, violent and skilled on the battlefield. Saxa may not be glamorous at times but you believe every moment she has a weapon in her hand. As for research, there have been remains of a female Gladiator that was discovered in Trier, Germany. Apparently they fought bearing midriff and portrayed their victories by raising one arm high above their heads. Sound familiar? I found this out after shooting “Vengeance”, it was sheer coincidence that my character happened to have the same physicality as the ancient female Gladiators. Perhaps it’s in my blood after all?
