fez, fez, fez..

A while ago I saw episodes where Fez was going to be deported. Eric's sister (can't think of her name at the moment) married him just so he could stay. 'Fez' was created by the writers as an acronym (with some poetic licence) for 'Foreign Exchange Student'. His actual name & country of origin are never mentioned because the writers could never decide on his origins so decided to leave it secret. The actor, Wilmer, said he created the accent he uses on the show so noone would know what country he is from. The actor moved from Venezuela to L.A with his family when he was 13.
