Sean Bean highlights the film’s supporting cast alongside Julie Christie, Suffron Burrows and Rose Byrne in this historical action epic directed by Wolfgang Petersen. He plays Odysseus:
I was doing a play in the West End (of London), so I didn’t have a great deal of time to prepare. I did a little bit of training in London, and once we got to Malta we had all these facilities that the production company provided, trainers and everything. They wanted everybody to look good because we were all supposed to be playing Greek warriors. Then I did a lot of preparation with Simon Crane, the stunt coordinator (and 2nd unit director).
