For the scene where Antony and Cleopatra were making love (while Atia and Octavia wait in the heat outside the palace), James Purefoy and Lyndsey Marshal were reportedly playing the scene while Marilyn Manson's cover of 'Tainted Love' was playing on set, which kept them in the mood. Another song they were listening to keep the energy up was 'Pretty Vacant' by The Sex Pistols. See more »
