Maybe McQueen is an homage to my beautiful husband Andy who died of cancer in September 2011, aged just 39. Losing my best friend, the father of my babies, the man I used to laugh with about something ridiculous on a daily basis, has completely broken my heart. At the same time it has fuelled me to get on with my life, to stop waiting until tomorrow when I feel stronger, happier, clearer or braver and to finally back myself in the way that Andy always backed me. 

"Be Here Now"

(The Andy Whitfield Story)

A Love Story by Oscar® Nominated Filmmaker Lilibet Foster


An inspiring love story between superstar, Andy Whitfield, of “Spartacus” fame and his charismatic wife, Vashti, who together take on the most heroic role he’s ever had to play. With matching 'Be Here Now' tattoos on their forearms, they go on a quest to heal Andy from a cancer diagnosis – by embracing life, rather than fear. They bravely allowed filmmaker, Lilibet Foster, to follow their dramatic and intimate roller coaster, in the hopes that by sharing their journey, they may help inspire others with challenges and dreams. And, it’s their determination, courage, healthy dose of humor and love that shows us that the journey is more important than the destination. “Be Here Now” (The Andy Whitfield Story) is a life-affirming love story about aiming for the skies, yet embracing and appreciating everything we have in our lives. This film is for anyone who has ever faced a challenge or had a dream. Their inspiring journey is an example for us all to go for our goals, yet remember to Be Here Now.



We are proud to release the film with the hope that, as Andy wished, it will inspire all of us with challenges and dreams to make the most of this one life yet appreciate and embrace what is right before us, and shine a light on the need for more cancer research, treatment and support. 

We are proud to collaborate with these organizations that are on the cutting-edge of cancer research, treatment and support.
