- Outhwaite appeared in New Tricks prior to her role as Sasha Miller - see Love Means Nothing In Tennis. This role has no connection to her current one as Sasha Miller.
- Both Outhwaite and her on-screen counterpart, Sasha Miller, have been divorced. They both also, as of 2014, have two children.
- In order to better establish her own unique character, she had never watched any episode of New Tricks prior to getting the part - she still praises Amanda Redman's performance and hopes she can live up to her name.
