In related news, executive producers Jon Steinberg and Robert Levine got candid about the shocking death on “Black Sails,” claims Collider.

As for the practice Ray Stevenson went through to enact the scene, he agreed that the actor dealt with a lot of make-up and crazy stuff.
He was particular about respecting the historical record and cooperated completely as he sat in the chair wearing prosthetics for hours.
