- Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Her character Anamaria is never seen or heard from again after Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. Interestingly, the cast was told in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest that Anamaria would appear at the ending of the film, so the shock and surprise of Captain Barbossa greeting them was genuine.
