    Posted on 03/16/2011 by Mary

    Find out what Charlotte and Holly J have in common! Besides being the exact same height and having the exact same hair color.

  • Munro Chambers Interview! Is Eli Goth-ish?

    Posted on 03/09/2011 by Mary

    Check this vintage interview with Munro Chambers behind the scenes at his photo shoot. He tries to describe Eli's style and comes up with: "really dark... Gothic... in a way?"

    It's not easy to label Eli, nor is there really any point to doing so, BUT, I'm bored so: if you had had had to describe Eli Goldsworthy's style, what would you call it?

    I'm going with "Timberlake meets Psychobilly."

    What music does Degrassi's Alli listen to when she's posing for pics? And how does Munro feel about that? Find out here:

    See, now when you look at this huge picture of her, you know exactly what she was listening to as she posed. Trippy, right?

  • Aislinn Paul Interview!

    Posted on 03/02/2011 by Mary

    Behind the scenes at her photo shoot, Aislinn tells us how and why she got into acting.

    Oh yeah also... little known fact: you know how Aislinn mentions that her parents are actors? Her dad was actually on Degrassi -- he was Mr. Michalchuk, Paige and Dylan's dad. True story!

    Anyway, I'm just gonna go ahead and drop a giant Aislinn pic here, too. 'Cause if she doesn't deserve some locker love, I don't know who does.

  • Argiris Karras Interview!

    Posted on 02/23/2011 by Mary

    Argiris Karras, aka Argy, aka Riley on Degrassi, seems just as relaxed as can be backstage at this photo shoot:

    And he looks pretty relaxed in front of the camera at that photo shoot, too. Also: rather huggable.

  • Luke Bilyk: Fan of Lunch

    Posted on 02/16/2011 by Mary

    If all that future civilizations unearthed about Luke Bilyk were this quickie interview with him backstage at a Degrassi photo shoot, at least they would know that Luke Bilyk is a dude who likes lunch, and likes to scare people.

    Also, here, have a nice big picture of him. That one in your locker is getting kind of ratty around the edges.

    One time, Degrassi's Fiona discussed her loaner Louboutins behind the scenes at a photo shoot... my hand to God it happened. Look! There's proof!

  • Montage! Behind the Scenes

    Posted on 01/27/2011 by Mary

    Make over montage! I want one! Why can't they happen in real life? They're so much quicker than real make overs where you have to keep washing make-up off and changing pants. Changing pants takes so long! Why is life so hard?

    So does that mean shooting Clare's make over montage for Degrassi was actually a pain in the butt instead of fun? Nope, looks like it was officially a blast:

    There's more behind the scenes footy in today's Degrassi On the Set playlist... such as for instance, Deanna Casaluce freezing her bits off when Alex became "Lextasy"; Ed Robertson from the Barenaked Ladies and Natasha Bedingfield on set (on different days); some bloopers, and more...
