Trivia / Alias

  • The Cast Showoff: Kevin Weisman is a talented drummer, and demonstrated it in Marshall's proposal to Carrie.
  • The Danza: Michael Vaughn (played by Michael Vartan) and Rachel Gibson (Rachel Nichols).
  • Directed by Cast Member: Jennifer Garner called the shots on "In Dreams...".
  • Fake Nationality: A lot of it.
    • Fake Brit: David Anders is American. You'd never know it from his performance.
    • Fake Russian:
      • None of the actresses playing the Derevko sisters are Russian: Lena Olin (Irina) is Swedish, Isabella Rossellini (Katya) is Italian, and Sonia Braga (Elena) is Brazilian.
      • Julian is one as well, as we find out in Season 3. Sark isn't his real name, and his father is a descendent of the Romanov family.
    • Gina Torres, who plays half-Russian, half-Spanish Anna Espinosa, is neither Russian nor Spanish. She's half Cuban, half African-American.
  • Star-Making Role: For Jennifer Garner.
  • What Could Have Been: Roger Moore's role as Edward Poole was originally planned to be recurring, but Moore and the producers couldn't agree on his salary so the character was killed offscreen a couple episodes after his first appearance.
