Nelson noteed the bone around the nose area, the anterior nasal spine, is teardrop-shaped, as it would be in a healthy person. In someone with leprosy, that bone would have eroded to a more circular shape.

He also examined images of a metatarsal bone, which should have been pencil-shaped at one end if Robert the Bruce suffered from leprosy. It was normal. Some analysts have speculated that four missing front teeth as shown in the cast would suggest a deformation that was common in leprosy.

But contemporary reports say the exhumed skull, even years after his death, was whole and healthy-looking. Nelson believes the plaster-casting process broke teeth already decayed by periodontal disease. Nelson also worked with internationally recognized paleo-pathologist and leprosy expert Dr. Olivier Dutour of France and Dr. Stan Kogon, a professor specializing in forensic dentistry at the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry, on the analysis.

The analysis has enabled Corbet to shape a bust that shows King Robert as a fierce and battle-scarred warrior, one without the skin lesions common in leprosy.

He doesn't see Mel Gibson's hit as competition - and he'd rather see more and more movies released that celebrate Scottish history. Taking on the task of Outlaw King was a big risk for the director after his last film was nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars. He had only just finished Western cime thriller Hell or High Water when he announced he had signed on to the mammoth project.

David revealed he had the idea for Outlaw King for six years but needed the perfect lead to play Robert the Bruce. It has been relentless ever since. The film featured so many brutal battle scenes that Mackenzie preferred to give his cast total freedom during the epic fights.

With up to people swinging swords, he reckoned it was easier to let them make their own moves than to tell everyone what to do. He enjoyed his relationship with Netflix so much that he hopes to team with the streaming kings again for future projects. The director will take a break to spend time with his wife and two kids once all of the Outlaw King promotion is over.
