* Indian-born American actor Creator/ErickAvari has made a career out of this: he's played British characters, Arab characters (even an ''alien'' Arab in the original ''Film/{{Stargate}}'' movie and the [[Series/StargateSG1 follow-up TV show]]), Egyptians, Russians, Spaniards, and so on. He's even occasionally played the odd American here or there. TheOtherWiki, in point of fact, says that he's "portrayed representatives of more than 24 different nationalities".
