Prison Break Facts a true Fan Must Know


There are so many people in my circle and the ones that I have been talking to and guess what, PRISON BREAK was their first season 😉 mine too. Today I have got some interesting facts to talk about which I think as a prison break fan everyone should know about. So before further ado let’s talk about those facts that every fan want to know:

 

Season Ban

It won’t be a surprise to learn that Prison Break was banned in 13 prisons just because the show wouldn’t inspire prisoners to create their own escape plan.

Michael Scofield’s Tattoo

The escape plan from prison was hidden in a tattoo printed on Michael Scofield’s body. It took approximately 4.5 hours to apply the tattoo design onto Michael’s body each day.  If a person was to have a tattoo just like Michael’s, it would take 200 hours to design and would cost a minimum of 15,000 USD: D

 

Warden Inspiration

Stacy Keach, who played Warden Henry Pope, spent six months in a British prison in the 80’s on a drug charge and based his performance as Pope on his old prison warden.

Presidents

The inmates were all named after US Presidents. Theodore “T-Bag” Bagwell was named after Theodore Roosevelt, and Lincoln Burrows was named after Abraham Lincoln. The show’s main character, Michael Scofield, was named after Edward Scofield, while Benjamin Miles “C-Note” Franklin was named after, Benjamin Franklin.

 

T-Bag Hair Style

Robert Knepper, who played T-Bag, said in an interview that he based T-Bag’s hairstyle on his old science teacher’s hair, as he always had a “poofy-bit” that stuck up at the front.

Fox Sued

Fox Productions were sued by two brothers, who claimed they had pitched the exact same TV concept to the company in 2001.

 

Blu-Ray

Prison Break was the first TV show to release a series on Blu-Ray. No other show on television has that honour.

 

Sara Tancredi

Sara Tancredi was meant to die in the first season, but fans took to Sarah Wayne Callies’s character and her popularity saw her stick around for more episodes.

Prison Scenes

All of the Fox River prison scenes in Prison Break season 1 were shot at Joliet Correctional Centre – the cell blocks, the yard and the infirmary were all real.
