* DyeingForYourArt: Bridget Regan's natural hair is red and curly. Has it dyed dark brown and chemically straightened to play Kahlan.
* HeyItsThatGuy: Due to filming in New Zealand and the production company involved, viewers may recognize a number of names from ''Series/HerculesTheLegendaryJourneys'' and ''Series/XenaWarriorPrincess''.
** One such example is Michael Hurst, who appeared in "Revenant" and directed eight episodes.
** Alice from the Season 1 finale (better known as Summer from ''Series/PowerRangersRPM'') was also Herc's daughter.
** [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Cordelia Chase]] is a Mord-Sith.
** Don't forget the [[Film/TheMatrix Trainman]].
** And [[Series/StarTrekEnterprise T'Pol]].
** Not to mention at least [[Series/PowerRangersJungleFury four former]] [[Series/PowerRangersRPM Power Rangers]]
** And half the recurring extras from [[XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]].
** And [[Film/LordoftheRings Gimli]] is [[spoiler: Panis Rahl!]]
** And [[Series/WhaleRider Paikea]] is [[spoiler: possibly the Creator]]
** And [[Series/BlueWaterHigh Garry]] is Richard.
** And [[Film/LordOfTheRings Haldir of Lórien]] is Darken Rahl.
** Jay from the Australian [[PlaySchool Play School]] kills heaps of people as an ally of the Seeker!
* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Cara, especially in the beginning, does ''not'' get along with Kahlan, [[FireForgedFriends at least at first]]. In real life, Bridget Regan (Kahlan) and Tabrett Bethell (Cara) became best friends while working on the show.
* RealitySubtext: The chemistry between Kahlan and Richard was helped tremendously by the fact that Craig Horner (Richard) and Bridget Regan are very close in real life.
* RetroactiveRecognition: Young Zedd is [[Series/{{Revenge}} Nolan Ross]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen
** Raimi and Tapert expressed interest in having their old pal Creator/BruceCampbell do a guest spot, and likely would've happened if not for scheduling conflicts.
** There was almost a deal for a third season on SciFiChannel.
* WhyFandomCantHaveNiceThings: Apparently part of the reason it was canceled was that some people were ''so'' vocal about their displeasure that networks didn't want to advertise the show and were reluctant to pick it up.
