Sasha revealed to EW that she met Henry after she finished filming The Flash“I asked him, ‘Did I make you proud, cuz? Does Superman approve?'” she said. “And he was like, ‘Absolutely. You did a phenomenal job.’ I think, to me, that meant the world, because it’s Henry Cavill, Man of Steel.”

Back in February 2023, Sasha shared an Instagram video of the first time she played bass. The actress also showed off her amazing vocals.

One Christmas, I remember waking up and there was a whole band set for me. I was jumping from the drum set to the guitar to the microphone and trying to perform all these instruments by myself.”
