In spite of being cast as a former Confederate soldier, Nick Adams never made any attempt to speak with a southern accent or even to moderate his natural and rather pronounced New England accent.

Just prior to shooting The Rebel, Nick Adams was coming off his 1958 portrayal of Pvt Ben Whitledge in No Time For Sergeants, whom he co-starred with Andy Griffith. Andy's character of Will Stockdale is the basis for the character Gomer Pyle. It is also on the set where Griffith met and formed a life long friendship with Don Knotts.
