Oliver Reed’s main motivation for taking the part of Proximo was because he wanted a, “free trip to London to see a couple of shows.”

Lou Ferrigno, the Incredible Hulk, was originally cast to play Tigris of Gaul, but he was replaced during production by Sven-Ole Thorsen.

In the iconic shot of Maximus’ hand brushing the stalks of wheat, the hand actually belongs to Stuart Clark, Russell Crowe’s stunt double.

Oliver Reed, who played Proximo, went on record to say that his main motivation for taking the part of Proximo was because he fancied a “free trip to London to see a couple of shows.”

Many of the animals were loaned to the production from the zoo in Rabat, Morocco, as a way of getting around the country’s strict animal important rules.

During filming, Reed and Crowe didn’t get along, and at one point, Reed even challenged Crowe to a fight. Now that would have been entertaining.

Reed died of a heart attack before Gladiator had finished filming. Reed’s character arc was rewritten, and Scott used CGI to work around his death, digitally scanning his face onto an extra in order to finish the movie.

Jack Gleeson modeled his character Joffrey Baratheon in Game of Thrones after Emperor Commodus.

For the crowd scenes in the Colosseum, in addition to the real-life extras and the digital ones, 400 cardboard cut-outs of spectators were also used.

Visual effects supervisor John Nelson said, “What we did was small compared to our other tasks on the film. What Oliver did was much greater.

Luciano Pavarotti was asked to perform on the soundtrack but he turned down the opportunity, something that he later regretted.

All we did was help him finish it.” The film is dedicated to the memory of Oliver Reed.

Maximus’s tattoo “SPQR” stands for “Senatus Populusque Romanus,” which translates to “The Senate and the Roman People.” This was one of the main slogans of Rome throughout its history.

Due to Academy regulations at the time, co-Composer Lisa Gerrard was denied an Oscar nomination while Hans Zimmer received one, which created a huge controversy over the Academy’s snubbing of Gerrard’s from the nomination. The two, however, did win the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score – Motion Picture as co-Composers

Richard Harris would frequently ignore any newly re-written scenes, as he couldn’t be bothered to relearn his lines.

A replica of about one third of Rome’s Colosseum was built in Malta, to a height of 52 feet, mostly from plaster and plywood. The remainder of the building was added in digitally. It took several months to build, at a reputed cost of $1 million.

Lou Ferrigno was originally cast as Tigris of Gaul, but was replaced during production by Sven-Ole Thorsen, who had been lobbying hard for the part.

The real-life Commodus was born to a mother who was rumored to have either slept with a Gladiator or had bathed in the blood of one. Many took the myth as legend, believing that such led to the resulting “Gladiator Emperor.”
