Hey

I noticed that Graham's character design and appearence is very similar to Harrison Ford, and that Valanice's appearence is very smiliar to Anne Archer. Some of you may know that Ford played as Jack Ryan in Clear and Present Danger and Patriot Games and that Archer played his wife in both.
I was wondering if this was just a coincidence or was Ford and Archer's appearences influencial on Graham's and Valanices?

Weird... I think it may be a coincidence, but I wouldn't know.

I believe a lot of the characters were based on people. I know Graham WAS based on Harrison Ford, but I can't remember the rest.

Anyone else on the team care to clarify? :P

I would, if I was on the team... Why would you base characters on real people though? I'm not the artist of my family. I'm the writer...

yeah, Graham is based on Harrison Ford. Valanice was originally based on Julianne Moore, but then Jon Stoll took her somewhere else. I'm not sure if he used any real life reference.
