Like Alfred Hitchcock, Bird liked to make a cameo appearance in his stories whenever he got the chance. In Maelstrom he appeared briefly in a scene with David Beames.
As an in-joke the character is referred to as 'Mr. Follestad', which was the name of Bente Saxon's father. Saxon was the Norwegian liaison for the production.
