Not to put my head in the lions mouth but Sam Neill was actually born in Ireland and spent most of his life in Austrailia and England.
Sean Connery is an extremely famous SCOTTISH actor
Peter Firth (who played the political officer) is also a famous ENGLISH actor!
Tim Curry is also a famous ENGLISH actor.

So in fact most of the leading cast are not American at all!
