* Shown in flashback in ''UglyHill'', where its shown that Hastings was attempting to convert to catholicism to marry his first wife Hope, at her request due to her parents being staunchly catholic.

* The then Princess Alix of Hesse would have to convert to the Russian Orthodox faith in order to marry the future emperor of Russia, Nicolas.

* Speaking of this business, Omar Sharif (of ''Film/DoctorZhivago'' fame) was actually born to a Catholic family of Lebanese origin (his birth name is Michel Dimitri Shalhoub). He converted from Catholicism to Islam at least in part to marry the Muslim actress Faten Hamama; they later divorced, but Sharif decided that Islam suited him better anyways. In 2008, he appeared in an Egyptian film (''Hassan and Marcus'') where he plays a Muslim sheikh who has to pretend to be Christian for his own safety, leading to a bit of irony for people who know his actual life story.
