Where'd they go?!

Is it just me or did Shane and Charles change from the ones casted in Season 1 episode 1? Wasn't Shane the American one and Charles the British one? I'm confused!

Shane was the British one married to Brooke Shield's character, Wendy. I believe Charles was then the husband of Kim Raver's character, Nico.

In the aired pilot, and the rest of the series, Paul Blackthorne played Shane Healy (b: Wellington, Shropshire, England, UK) as Wendy's husband, and Christopher Cousins played Charles Reilly (b: New York City, New York, USA) as Nico's husband.
However, there was an unaired pilot, which circulated online after it was leaked, Christopher Wiehl (b: Yakima, Washington, USA) played Shane Healy, and Nico's last name was O'Neilly instead of Reilly (still played by Kim Raver), and her husband was Seymour O'Neilly, played by Julian Sands (b: Otley, Yorkshire, England, UK).
So you are correct that the husbands might have appeared to have been "switched", based on accents alone, if you watched the unaired pilot instead of the aired one, and then continued with the series. 8)
(Interestingly, while Wiehl was not part of the aired show at all, Julian Sand was shifted to the role of Hector Matrick instead. That would have been extra confusing if you started with the unaired pilot!)

No worries. I understood what you meant. 8)
I didn't remember all the actors names either; that's why I used IMDB, LOL.
