The Show

Behind the Scenes

  • Catherine Zeta-Jones auditioned for the role of Nefertiri before it went to Peeples.
  • Constantine was an attempt to great a role analogous to Darius, but for various reasons this never came to fruition.

Allusions and References

Memorable Moments


  • English was not a language in Nefertiri's time. Thus, not only would she (and Constantine) not be speaking it in the flashbacks, but she would not be speaking nor able to understand it by the time she is freed.
