  • At one point, Van Sprang decided to shave his head in an effort to land "leading, dangerous, bad-guy parts" because, though he had been playing several beforehand, he'd begun to lose them to actors who appeared more crazed.
  • Alan has a son named Logan Joseph with his former partner, actress-choreographer Sarah Robichaud in 2002.[2] He currently resides in Toronto.[3]
