Fact 5 -
When Marina Siritis auditioned for Star Trek The Next Generation, it actually wasn't for the role of Deanna Troi. She auditioned for the role of the security chief who was named Lt. Macha Hernandez at the time, based on Vasquez from Aliens. Roddenberry liked Sirtis' exotic Greek look and called her back to audition five times. At the same time, Denise Crosby had auditioned to play Counselor Troi. In the end, Roddenberry decided to switch between the two actresses. Sirtis became Troi and Crosby (who didn't pass for Latina) went from Macha Hernandez to Natasha "Tasha" Yar.
