NOTES

The initial shooting of "The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles" took nearly a year to complete since all the filming was done on location in such farflung locales as England, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Italy, Germany, Africa and Moscow. Consequently, although Flanery reported to London for rehearsals in the spring of 1991, the show did not premiere until March 1992.

"There's a lot more adolescence apparent in my character, and he's a lot more naive than Harrison Ford's character," Sean explains. "But as far as mannerisms and gestures, that's the stuff that I really tried to copy from Ford, like the way he puts his hat on or the way he wears it around girls, the way he cracks the whip--everything. I tried to emulate that as close as possible or incorporate that in my character. I just wrapped it all up and used what I could."

"I spent two months in preproduction taking horseback-riding lessons," he continues. "I got pretty good. I did all kinds of trick riding, you know, standing up in the saddle, jumping on the horse from a full gallop, running next to it, jumping on, jumping off, jumping back on, jumping over cliffs--I mean, all kinds of stuff. I learned a lot about stunts. How to do stunts, how to do falls, how to do punches. What the camera reads as opposed to what really looks like a punch. Gee, I took Spanish lessons. I've learned all kinds of languages from Arabic to Greek, Italian, Ancient Greek, German, French. I've even taken some piano lessons and some nautical lessons."
