* HeyItsThatGuy:
** "James Bond just killed {{Sharpe}}!" And amusingly, in an episode of ''Sharpe'', the latter's sidekick killed a character played by Creator/DanielCraig, the next Bond. Nowadays, he's known as [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Boromir of Gondor]]. As well as [[Series/GameOfThrones Ned Stark, Lord of Winterfell]].
** Xenia and Boris are [[Film/{{X-Men}} Jean Grey and Nightcrawler]].
*** 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!
** Joe Don Baker (who was villain Brad Whitaker in ''Film/TheLivingDaylights'') is Jack Wade!
*** [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 MITCHELL!]]
** The unfortunate Admiral who suffers Xenia's thighs early in the film previously appeared in the "unofficial ''Bond''" ''Film/NeverSayNeverAgain''. Presumbly his murder was punishment for starring in the ''Film/{{Thunderball}}'' knockoff.
*** [[Film/TopSecret Nick Rivers' defense attorney can't catch a break, can he?]]

** 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.

** Subverted with Izabella Scorupco, who turned down high profile lead roles in ''TheMaskOfZorro'' and ''LAConfidential'' after the success of this film. Her acting career petered out, and she's only been in a few supporting roles since.
