* FakeAmerican: British-Canadian Scott Speedman as Lieutenant Commander Kendall and Australians Daisy Betts as Lieutenant Grace Shepard and Daniel Lissing as SEAL James King.
* FakeNationality: Zigzagged all over the place with Nepali-Australian (and ethnically German-Tibetan) Dichen Lachman as an Australian-raised island native. Also, American-born Sahr Ngaujah, who is of Sierra Leonean descent, as an expatriate Liberian drug lord who somehow found himself in the Indian Ocean.
** Singaporean Chinese Chin Han as Chinese Special Envoy Zheng Li.
** Averted with Frenchwoman Sophie Girard being played by - gasp! - a French actress.
** Some of the "Filipinos" being depicted in "Blue Water" are a mix. Some are actual ones, but there are others who look like them. Except that they aren't. Example: One of them doesn't pronounce "Sampaloc" the right way during a conversation with King and Sam.
