* Guillermo del Toro sat next to Creator/StephenKing during a showing; in the commentary, he said watching King -- [[NightmareFetishist no stranger to horror]] -- squirming in his chair during the Pale Man scene was akin to winning the [[UsefulNotes/AcademyAward Oscar]].

Both of these actor had already done similar roles before this film (albeit their comedic side was definitely the best known)
* Creator/GuillermoDelToro ''himself'' gets one for giving normally typecast actors a chance to break out. He was under much criticism by several directors in the [[UsefulNotes/{{Spain}} Spanish]] movie industry for casting many of the actors in roles that apparently did not suit them. One director predicted that the movie would be a huge flop due to his choices in actors, going on to say that: "Obviously you don't know these things because you're Mexican." Del Toro's response? "It's not that I don't know it -- [[BadassBoast it's that I don't give a fuck.]]" When ''Pan's Labyrinth'' premiered (and was subsequently an enormous hit), the Spanish director had no choice but to apologize for his remarks. For a specific example, Creator/SergiLopez, who played Captain Vidal, had only been known for comedic roles. With this film he portrayed one of the most terrifying and evil villains of the last decade. Likewise, Creator/AlexAngulo (The Doctor) was known as a comedic actor.

* Another meta example: Creator/DougJones, who played the Faun, does not speak Spanish. So he learned all of his lines phonetically -- and even though he was later overdubbed by a Spanish speaker, his efforts mean that the overdubbing is nearly seamless. Furthermore, he had to learn all of Ofelia's lines as well (so he would know when to speak), and was essentially acting while deaf -- the servos in his costume were so loud that he couldn't hear her actress speak.

She switches in this (AWESOME) line, rather than at end. Plus, I put the original too for good measure. :P
** Which sounds more brilliant in the original Spanish, in which she switches her way to address him from formal ''usted'', as due to someone of his rank, to informal ''tú'', and she sounds like she's been ''waiting for so long'' to use it to his face and kick him off his pedestal.

** Complete with the utterly ''awesome'' line: [[spoiler:"[[PrecisionFStrike Motherfucker]]... Don't you dare touch the girl. You won't be the first pig I've gutted!"]] Oh, yes.

Here we go again. Spirasen, there is NO punctuation standard I've read anywhere that says that commas go inside parentheses. Full stops, question marks, and exclamation marks maybe, but even then only if the thing in parentheses is a full sentence. There is never a correct reason to put a comma immediately before a right parenthesis. Ever.
* It should be added that [[spoiler:destroying the rebels and passing on his name were the only things Vidal seemed to care about; having the first denied him was bad, but when Mercedes denies him the second, it's really the only time in the film you see him look genuinely upset about something.]] ** When she [[spoiler:breaks free from Vidal's torture and [[GlasgowGrin slices his cheek open]]. From the inside.]] *** Complete with the utterly ''awesome'' line: [[spoiler:"[[PrecisionFStrike Motherfucker]]... Don't you dare touch the girl. You won't be the first pig I've gutted!"]] Oh, yes. **** And his earlier line: [[SuicidalOverconfidence "For God's sake, she's just a woman."]]
