The new episodes usher in four new characters: Maya (Olivia Scriven); Tori (Alex Steele); Tristan (Lyle O’Donohoe) and Zig (Ricardo Hoyos).
Celebuzz recently caught up with stars Annie Clark and Munro Chambers, who play the school’s resident wild child Fiona and bad boy Eli respectively, to talk about what’s to come this upcoming season — including an unexpected murder in the first episode!
She got accepted into the University of Toronto on April 25th, 2012, and studying film.
Her former Degrassi co-star Sam Earle and her have a film class together.
Walk us through your thoughts when you first heard the big news. The cast dynamic on must be very different compared to other shows. It’s basically my first show so I don’t really have experience with anything else but from what I hear from everyone else—everyone says this is the best set to work on and it’s actually pretty crazy that a group of 20, 25 teenagers are able to get along so well. There were five main characters and now there are 20! MC: I’ve watched a couple of episodes but I was never a diehard fan like Annie Clark. Degrassi is known for tackling issues—everything from drugs to a hoarding addiction. MC: We’re just jumping it again—we’re tackling issues that people go through everyday. AC: This season, drama still ensues but Fiona is a little tamer than we last saw her in the past. Will this new love interest take her in that direction? It’s her first normal relationship with someone who wants the same thing that she does.
Annie Clark: It was my day to sleep in but as soon as I saw that email I was like, “I need to tell everyone! Munro Chambers: I was sleeping and I got an email saying, “Guys, we’re nominated for an Emmy! ” I kind of just read it and went back to bed because I was like, “No, I have to be dreaming.” But then I woke up and read it again and everyone on Twitter was saying we are nominated. There are 25 actors featured in the opening credits! Sometimes people don’t believe me when I tell them that we actually get along so well. So, it’s kind of like going back to high school again. I knew what it was and how iconic it was—how it was a big deal in Canada. But I can say that in the first episode there’s going to be an unexpected murder that will really set the tone for the season! She’s kind of going into the new school year a little bit more sophisticated and a little bit more clear-headed. Degrassi fans are also introduced to a couple of new characters in the trailer—one of them being Jake, Clare’s childhood friend.
