  • K.C. and Declan - Are they Aislinn Paul (Clare)'s type, too?

    Posted on 05/06/2010 by Mary

    One time, I cornered Aislinn Paul (Clare from Degrassi) and made her talk about boys. She was very accommodating to my nosiness, because she is SUPER nice. And pretty much exactly as smart and realistic as you'd think she is.

    Aislinn Paul, Clare from Degrassi Do you have a type? I always get to the point where I think I know my type, but then I like someone completely different and I don't know why. I think they just have to be someone who's willing to have conversations about the world... and just, think about stuff, as opposed to being rash and acting before thinking.

    Have you ever had a crush on someone who had like, never cracked open a book? Yup! So, I think I know what my type is, but then I just trick myself and like someone completely different.

    Do you and your friends have any rules about whether you can date ex-boyfriends, current crushes, anything like that? Well, the problem at my school -- I go to an arts school. So there's about one boy for every... twenty girls? So we don't even really worry about it. We just say, "Everyone, go for whoever."

    How 'bout you guys... do you have a type?
  • Five Questions for Jajube Mandiela (aka Chantay)

    Posted on 04/25/2010 by Mary

    This week, Jajube Mandiela (aka Chantay on Degrassi) answers five questions... and now we want to hang out with her so bad.

    Jajube Mandiela, Chantay from DegrassiWhat was the first rock show/concert you ever went to, and what was the BEST rock show/concert you ever went to?

    First concert: I went to lots of small venue concerts with local and independent artists throughout my really young child and early teen years, but the first large venue concert was PsychoBlast 2000 featuring Christina Aguilera (and popular Canadian groups)

    And the BEST: k-os's concert at the Molson Amphitheatre here in Toronto (July 2005)

    What makes you cranky? And what gets you un-cranky?
    Being really hungry & really sleepy = soooooo cranky. To get uncranky, either sleep or food makes me happy again!

    When you doodle, what do you draw?
    I often doodle on theatre scripts during rehearsal (when we are reading through and discussing the play and such), and I find myself doodling flowers, swirls, hearts, words, eyes, eyebrows and sometimes even lips.

    What do you think makes a good Degrassi episode?
    When the storyline is about a classic, teen issue that teens, parents and everyone else can relate to, most likely because they or someone they know has lived it (like one of the Dave Season 9 storylines where he tries to become cool at school by standing up to bully, Bruce).

    And a user question from IcyTowerz: Who do you most relate to as a character?
    Holly J's ambition: she is so driven, motivated and successful. I do not relate to her mean, step-on-other-people to get whatever she needs methods, but her drive is so passionate and relatable.

    (Hey, btw, If you have a question suggestion for a Degrassi star, let me know, k? K!)

  • Five Questions for Landon Liboiron (aka Declan)

    Posted on 04/15/2010 by Mary

    This week, Landon Liboiron (aka Declan on Degrassi) gives us 5 answers.

    Landon Liboiron, Declan from Degrassi What was the first rock show/concert you ever went to, and what was the BEST rock show/concert you ever went to?
    The first official concert I went to was Corb Lund. I haven't been to a lot of concerts, so I would have to say Jason Mraz put on the best show I've seen.

    What makes you cranky? And what gets you un-cranky?
    I get cranky when a fly buzzes around your ear when you try and sleep. No matter how much you swat at the thing it doesn't get the point to leave.

    Watching a movie or playing guitar usually soothes me out if I'm in a bad mood.

    When you doodle, what do you draw?
    I don't know, whatever is in my mind at the time...

    What do you think makes a good Degrassi episode?
    I think kids going through what kids do makes a good Degrassi episode.

    And a user question from equinegal5: How have you changed since joining the show?
    I feel that I have. I feel like I'm more confident as an actor because being on a TV series forces you to work harder and be prepared. I also have a group of friends that have made my life different and more exciting. Good question.
