Trivia / In the Name of the Father

  • Dawson Casting: Beatie Edney played 17-year-old Carol Richardson while being at least 30 at the time of filming herself (although she's later aged up as her character spends 15 years in prison).
  • Fake Irish: Mostly averted, except for Daniel Day-Lewis, Pete Postlethwaite and Mark Sheppard. However, Day-Lewis's father was Irish, he got Irish citizenship and lives there, while Sheppard also has some Irish heritage. All of them put on good accents too.
