* HeyItsThatGuy: The guy who killed Saskia used to play bass guitar in SpandauBallet.
** When ''EastEnders'' was first introduced, its creators tried to avoid casting actors who the viewing public would recognise as "stars". The two main aversions to this were [[Series/AreYouBeingServed Wendy Richard]] and [[Series/GrangeHill Susan Tully]].
** Indeed, many alumni of ''Series/Grange Hill'' ended up appearing in ''EastEnders''. As well as the afore-mentioned Susan Tully (Suzanne Ross in ''Series/GrangeHill'' and Michelle Fowler in ''EastEnders''), both actors to play the role of Mark Fowler appeared in ''Grange Hill''.
** Former ''EastEnders'' actors had a habit of turning up as characters in ''Series/TheBill'': Irene Raymond (Roberta Taylor) = Gina Gold, Mark Fowler Mk II (Todd Carty) = Gabriel Kent, Ruby Allen (Louisa Lytton) = Beth Green, Natalie Evans (Lucy Speed) = Stevie Moss etc.
*** And vice-versa, especilly after the plug was pulled on ''Series/TheBill''.
** Johnny Allen is [[VideoGame/ModernWarfare Captain Price]].
