* ClassicallyTrainedExtra: Nero apprenticed at the acclaimed [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piccolo_Teatro_(Milan) Piccolo Teatro]] in Milan and performed Shakespeare and other classical roles on stage early in his career.

His fears proved unfounded, and Nero still got to play dramatic parts occasionally alongside his more famous action roles.
