Fringe Cast (from left):Joshua Jackson, John Noble and Anna Torv.

1. Our brilliant character Peter Bishop is played by Canadian Joshua Jackson.

2. Blair Brown, who plays Nina Sharp, is also Canadian.

3. Both Anna Torv (Olivia Dunham)- and Joshua Jackson were born in 1978.

4. John Noble – who plays Walter Bishop - co-starred in the last two movies of The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (The Lord of The Rings: Two Towers & The Lord of The Rings: The Return of the King). He played Denethor.

5. Twin actor brothers Shawn and Aaron Ashmore guest-star in 1 episode of Fringe’s 3rd season (5TH episode). Aaron guest-starred in Smallville for several seasons and you might remember Shawn from the X-Men: The Last Stand (2006), the third movie of the series where he played Iceman or recently, the movie Frozen. The brothers are Canadian.

6. After Olivia got into a fight with the “shifted” Francis (Kirk Acevedo) and got injured both emotionally & physically, Nina Sharp referred her to a man named Sam Weiss. He had highly simple yet unique methods for helping her recover. Despite having a sense of humor, this role was pretty serious for actor Kevin Corrigan- who you might remember as Grounded for Life’s wacky uncle.

7. Actress Diane Kruger (Troy, Wicker Park, Copying Beethoven), also Joshua Jackson ’s real life girlfriend, guest-stars in 1 episode of Fringe TV series.– season 2, episode 17.

This is from the theme song of the Ghostbusters’ soundtrack.

9. Mark Valley stars in 13 episodes as Agent John Scott – Olivia (Anna Torv)’s partner/boyfriend. In real life, Mark Valley and Anna Torv were married. They are now separated.

10. Akiva Goldsman, who wrote the screenplay for A Beautiful Mind- is a consulting producer for the show.

12. Sebastian Roche –who plays the “machine” Newton, is actress Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air)’s ex husband.

13. Joshua shot to fame with the TV show Dawson’s Creek (1998-2003), where he played Pacey. The show was created by Kevin Williamson, who is now working on the episodes of the hit show The Vampire Diaries.
