I was looking up background on the cast and noticed something unusual: the following 5 actors are all from the British Isles, even though few of them are playing British characters. At least two got famous for British (or Commonwealth) films:
Joseph Fiennes - Mark (played the title role in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE)
Sonya Walger - Olivia
Jack Davenport -- Lloyd Simcoe
Dominic Monaghan -- Simon (played Pippin in LORD OF THE RINGS)
Brian O'Byrne - Aaron Stark
Is this a coincidence, or did they use a British talent agency, or what?
