Here are the first lines from the
website. From Maximum
"In the original script, Maximus was called Narcissus
Russell suffered numerous injuries while filming.
Among them, he cracked a
bone in his foot, fractured a hip, and both bicep tendons popped out (luckily,
not at the same time).
He's said one of the scariest events occurred while filming the opening
battle sequence. The horse he was riding got a little too close to the fire,
then started going backwards down the hill. The animal eventually hit a few
trees, and one branch went through one of Russell's cheeks.
You can see the
real wound early in the film."
