* DawsonCasting:
** Brigitte, age 15, is played by a 23-year-old Emily Perkins. Katharine Isabelle, who plays her big sis Ginger, is four years younger than Perkins. What's really weird is that the characters actually look their age, right down to Brigitte appearing younger than Ginger.
** Ghost in the second film. Creator/TatianaMaslany was 19 at the time of filming, but Ghost is 13.
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** When Ginger grew up, [[Film/AmericanMary she became a]] MadDoctor.
** [[Creator/TatianaMaslany Ghost]] has, at last count, [[Series/OrphanBlack eight clones]].
* TooSoon: News that Telefilm Canada was funding a "[[CowboyBebopAtHisComputer teen slasher flick]]" (and one with a {{goth}} [[AcceptableTargets protagonist]], at that) right after the UsefulNotes/{{Columbine}} massacre and a copycat shooting in Alberta was met with outrage from the Canadian media.
