Trivia: EastEnders
  • Dawson Casting: Subverted. Wendy Richard, who by the time of this series was over 40 and had been acting for over 25 years, took the role specifically because she was tired of playing younger, "glamorous" characters.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: The guy who killed Saskia used to play bass guitar in Spandau Ballet.
    • 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 Wendy Richard and Susan Tully.
    • Indeed, many alumni of Grange Hill ended up appearing in EastEnders. As well as the afore-mentioned Susan Tully (Suzanne Ross in Grange Hill 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 The Bill: 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 The Bill.
    • Johnny Allen is Captain Price.
  • Hey, It's That Place!: While still under construction, the Albert Square set doubled as the Dusseldorf construction site employing the main characters in the first series of Auf Wiedersehen, Pet.
