This post used to be called Nine Actors You Didn’t Know Were in ‘Band of Brothers’
I have now added one more as i just found out that Dubliner Andrew Scott ( Moriarty in Sherlock; The Stag; Locke) was also in it.
Christ, at this point it looks like pretty much every up-and-coming British or Irish actor from the late 90s was in the HBO miniseries.

There are over 500 speaking parts in HBO’s mammoth war drama Band of Brothers. The series was shot in England, so it should come as no surprise that a lot of young British and Irish actors were in the cast. Michael Fassbender was in almost every episode as Christenson. Fassbender is fluent in German; he must have wondered why they cast him to play someone who couldn’t speak a word of it.
