* RecycledSoundtrack: The end credits song "The Experience of Love" was originally written by score composer Music/EricSerra for ''Film/Léon''.
* RomanceOnTheSet: It's been reported (and both director Martin Campbell and producer Michael G Wilson allude to it on the [=DVD=] and Bluray commentary track, suggesting that there were a lot of 'secret desires' between the pair) that Pierce Brosnan and Famke Janssen were extremely attracted to each other during production. Nothing ever "happened" as far as anyone knows, bur it sure explains their strong on-screen chemistry. Naturally, however, the British tabloids took this and ran with it, despite Brosnan being in a long-term relationship and Janssen actively being married at the time.

*** These days, Boris works in [[Series/TheGoodWife Chicago]]. When he's not [[Series/TinMan wandering around the O.Z.]] or introducing ''[[Series/{{Masterpiece}} Masterpiece Mystery]]''.
*** Xenia's now the [[Film/{{Taken}} ex-wife of an ex-spy]].
** And Robbie Coltrane as Valentin Dmitriyev Zhukovsky, ie, [[Film/HarryPotter Rubeus Hagrid]]. [[{{Series/Cracker}} Or Eddie Fitzgerald for British TV Fans]].
** Blink and you'll miss Minnie Driver (or, if you prefer, [[Film/ThePhantomOfTheOpera2004 Carlotta]][=/=][[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Jane]]) as Valentin's tone-deaf mistress.
** [[ComicBook/{{Asterix}} Julius Caesar]] is Ourumov!

** Even after a six-year hiatus between this film and "Film/LicenceToKill", Creator/TimothyDalton was initially interested in reprising the role of James Bond for just Goldeneye and not for any further films. Despite their great working relationship and friendship, producer Albert "Cubby" Broccoli wanted Dalton to commit to a four to five-film contract, which Dalton was unwilling to do. Not wanting to be contractually obligated to stick around for longer than he was willing to, Dalton announced his resignation from the role in April 1994.

** This is where Famke Janssen's filmography started to snowball, with her next major appearance being in Bryan Singer's X-Men. She had however stated a desire to avoid being typecast following Goldeneye, and reportedly received dozens of 'evil villainess' roles following her turn as Xenia; to avoid this, she used her turn in Goldeneye to gain numerous indie roles, including a spot on a Woody Allen film.
