Trivia / The Nativity Story

  • Actor Allusion: Ciaran Hinds plays the role of a ruler. Now where have we seen that before?
  • Contractual Purity: Keisha Castle-Hughes's real-life teen pregnancy was no Virgin Birth.
  • Fake Nationality: Keisha Castle-Hughes is from New Zealand, Ciaran Hinds and Stanley Townsend are both Irish, and Oscar Issac is Guatemalan-born, but American. Averted with Shohreh Aghdashloo, who is of Middle Eastern descent (Iranian). Subverted with the Sudanese-born (but English-raised) Alexander Siddig.
