In the sequel film, the character is played by Jared Harris.

* The first appearance of [[spoiler:Commander Sela]] in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' [[spoiler:in the episode where Geordi is kidnapped and brainwashed by Romulans]] had her standing in the shadows, and played by a different actress (although [[spoiler:Denise Crosby]] did provide the voice).

** In ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm'', the titular Phantasm is initially voiced by Stacy Keach, who also plays [[spoiler:Carl Beaumont]]. This is a red herring, however, as the Phantasm turns out to actually be [[spoiler:Andrea Beaumont - Carl's daughter - using a voice modulator to sound masculine]].

* Done regularly in ''Series/MissionImpossible''. If the team needs Rollin or Paris to impersonate a Mr X who has already appeared in the episode before the impersonation begins, the actor playing Mr X will also play Rollin or Paris impersonating Mr X. Done especially well in the climax of "Illusion" [[spoiler: (where it's revealed that the master of ceremonies, who we've been led to believe is Rollin in disguise, is actually Barney while Rollin is disguised as another character!)]].
