New Interview: Munro Chambers (Eli)!

Posted on Jul 18, 2011 by Mary

Munro Chambers aka Eli Goldsworthy from Degrassi: Now or Never How has it been working with Justin Kelly (who will play Jake) again?
Outstanding. He's a very very good friend of mine -- we worked together on a previous show -- and it's great. He's a talented actor, and to work with him again is a pleasure. Coming to work here every day is already the peak, acting-wise, for fun and enjoyment. But the fact that he's on makes it that much better, because it's family.

This must be a very different season for you, because last season most of your days were spent with Aislinn and now they're kind of... not.
Yeah, it's different. But I still... I still see her a lot. You'll see that in the season, we're still around each other, for better or worse.

What's your take on the new character Imogen? We're all so curious about her.
She's awesome. Really deep. I feel like there's so much to her that we don't know yet, she's a really complex character, played beautifully by Christine Prosperi. It's a very awkward character but at the same time very confident. It's really right in the middle. And Christine is so unlike Imogen. She's doing a fantastic job.

How do you feel about where Eli's going this season?
Eli... since the finale when he crashed his car, obviously something "upstairs" is not tightened properly. It's a very difficult time for him right now. I feel like Clare's trying to get over it, he's trying to get over it, they're both denying some stuff, and you're gonna see him go into kind of a dark place. But at the same time, good comes out of it. You're going to see a side of Eli that has been brewing inside of him, that a lot of people aren't ready for. What we saw in the finale was a glimpse.

Do you miss Morty?
I really do! I remember there was a scene where I'm driving in my dad's car, which is a very beautiful car, but I was like "I miss driving that hungry monster of a car!" So good. I miss him. I want him back.

Where is Morty now?
I think he's back in Newfoundland. He's a '63 Cadillac I think? But yeah, he's from Newfoundland; I met the guy who owns him, and he's a pretty sick dude. He's like 28, 29, he's not like this elderly guy who just drives around this old hearse. Apparently he drove it to prom and stuff! I wish Eli had gotten to do that.
