I have enjoyed Degrassi: TNG since it came on the air in 2002. Lately it seems the cast is finally getting noticed by the American audience. Im unsure whether this has to do with the Hollywood filming of the Degrassi movie Degrassi Goes Hollywood (Paradise City in Canada), but Hollywood has finally taken notice of this stunning cast.
Miriam McDonald (Emma) played in the Lifetime TV movie, She's too Young, a movie about young teens having sex. Shenae Grimes (Darcy) left the set of Degrassi behind last year and moved to the states to begin filming on the CW's 90210. The CW has also taken Nina Dobrev (Mia) and Steve Belford (Jesse) to star alongside on another in the Vampire Diaries. Rhianna has also taken notice of Degrassi and been spotted locking lips with Aubrey Drake Graham (Jimmy).
With all the talent from TV shows like Sophie, The Listener, and Flashpoint coming to the US from Canada, it's nice to see they're giving that talent a chance in Hollywood. Go Degrassi cast, keep up the great work.
