Paul Mescal reveals he ‘loved’ the gruelling training for Gladiator 2 DESPITE how ‘tiresome’ it was


Paul Mescal has revealed that he ‘loved’ the training for Gladiator 2 despite how gruelling it was physically.


Due for release later this year, the Irish actor, 28, t

akes on the role of Roman Empire Lucius Verus, the grown-up son of Lucilla, portrayed as a child in the Oscar-winning original from 2000 starring Russell Crowe.

And speaking in a new interview on Capital Radio with Jordan North on Tuesday, Paul said that the brutal schedule and physical nature of filming was merely a ‘first world problem’. 


Jordan asked him of preparing for the huge blockbuster: ‘Was it a hard, brutal schedule or was it okay when you could just eat everything you wanted?’

Paul then replied: ‘It’s a first world problem. Like I had every amenity available to me. I had a great trainer. People telling me what and when to eat. 

‘And I think it’s just a by-product. You have to train hard to be in a film like this and I kind of loved it. Of course, it gets tiresome at certain moments.’

It comes after Paul was seen shirtless with a burlap skirt on and gold cuffs on his wrists in his trailer while on the set of Gladiator 2.

The image was shared by his costar Pedro Pascal on social media on Monday. Paul plays Lucius and Pedro is Marcus Acacius.
