The role of Nathaniel "Nathan" Bedford was played in the pilot by Jason London
. When the series was picked up for more episodes, Jason was already committed to filming The Man in the Moon
(1991). He suggested that his twin brother, Jeremy, replace him in the series. However, Jason took over the role again in late 1993 for the series' two-hour conclusion ("I'll Fly Away: Then & Now") when Jeremy was shooting another project. See more
