Hello Global Grind! It's @theCharlotteXO
I can definitely understand why people love Degrassi. It’s a pretty addictive show.
I was on a show called Naturally Sadie before this for a couple of years. So when that ended I didn’t really know what I was going to do acting wise, or if I was going to keep auditioning or what. I got Degrassi almost immediately after I wrapped that show and I’ve been doing it for four years now, so Degrassi really has become my home and my family.
When I started out on Degrassi, it was my chance to play something different than the character I had been playing, which was someone completely mean and terrible – Ha ha – in her own way, plus I’d been a fan of the show, so that was fun immediately.
I got to join a show that not only has a great cult following but is also loved in Canada and around the world. Kids love to watch it, as did I. It has changed my life by opening up doors for me. I get to do a lot of traveling with the show, and not just to New York, where I am right now. The number of ways it’s made my life better, I cant even begin to describe. It’s fantastic.
