Further, the actress playing Valeria had her index finger severed during a fight scene where they inexplicably used a real sword instead of a prop, and then even more inexplicably gave it to an extra instead of a trained stuntman. The random dude parried the actresses' blow, the sword slipped, and off came her finger.


Is it true?

Did Sandahl Bergman lose her index finger? Was it reattached?

Yes, she nearly lost her finger, but it was fixed. You can hear her describing the injury in this youtube video where she also shows the scar to a fan, who confirms that it is present.

I almost lost my finger [...] The sword slid down and I was holding my sword and it cut this way through. [...] That's why my handwriting is hard, this is the writing finger.

She has all fingers though :-)
