* Creator/GretaGarbo playing [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christina_of_Sweden Queen Christina of Sweden]]. Contemporary paintings and descriptions presented the queen as fairly ugly and butch. She also had traditionally male-like mannerisms, interests and way of dressing. All this has led some historians to speculate that she may have actually been biologically intersex.

->'''André Castelot:''' Louis XVIII even used to say that nothing in her [the Duchess] was pretty, but everything was charming. Now, I need to confess something. You know that ''La Caméra Explore le Temps'' strives to be as close as possible to historical truth; well, here we took some liberties with the truth. Françoise Christophe will play the Duchess of Berry; well, everything in her is pretty, and everything in her is charming.

* ''Anime/{{Classicaloid}}'' does this with composers. One of Pad-kun's conventions is to show a picture of the real life composer when their Mujik is first introduced, which does make for a jarring contrast for some of them (especially the GenderFlip versions).
