  • Degrassi Interview: Charlotte Arnold, aka Holly J

    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.

    It's no secret: I think Charlotte Arnold is pretty much the bomb. If you want to hear more from her, check out these other Charlotte Arnold posts with other interviews and observations of her.

    And/or help yourself to an eyeful of this totes gorge pic of her from Vegas Night.

  • 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.

  • Annie Clark Talks Clothes

    Posted on 02/09/2011 by Mary

    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!

  • 2007 Aubrey Graham Interview -- the Early Drake Years

    Posted on 01/21/2011 by Mary

    Before he was Drake, he was Degrassi's Jimmy. And right after he put the finishing touches on the Comeback Season mixtape, he gave us one of his trademark super-candid interviews about... everything. Uh, his days of wearing Lady Speed Stick, why he's not interested in a "yes man", and the REAL reason he never answers his phone.

    Aubs, we miss you to death, and we remain prouder than peacocks of your ongoing world domination. Couldn't happen to a better guy.

  • Classic Adamo Ruggiero (Marco!) Phone Call

    Posted on 01/20/2011 by Mary

    I love re-listening to this old podcast interview with Adamo because he talks about what good roommates he and Lauren Collins (Paige) would make, and here in the future we happen to know that they ended up living together for a long time. Maybe they still do? I'll tweet them and ask.

    Also there are too many good pics of Adamo; I kind of went overboard. Sorrry!
