West trained with swords for Carter

Dominic West trained for John Carter

Dominic West has revealed he had to train hard for the fight scenes in new sci-fi adventure John Carter.

The Wire star plays Sab Than, Prince of Zodanga, in Disney's new 3D epic starring rising star Taylor Kitsch as John Carter.

Dominic said: "I did quite a bit for fights, we did some big fights and so I did quite a lot of that and I'll be interested to see how that comes out because they were quite elaborate fights with swords."

The 42-year-old British star was a bit confused by the plot of the cult sci-fi comic and novel about an American Civil War veteran who is miraculously transported to Mars.

Dominic said: "It's sci-fi and I think it's set in the future, well it's set all over the place, but it starts off as a western and goes into a huge sci-fi thing.

"So we're fighting with swords and flying huge ancient tall ships. So it's all a sort of mish-mash of styles and ages. I think it will be great."

Don't confuse love with lust. Having a physical relationship with someone isn't an indication of emotional commitment. If you're with someone who doesn't want to spend time with you outside the bedroom, move on to greener pastures. It's sometimes difficult to face the truth of a situation like this. When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
