Plus, Charlotte reveals why you probably shouldn’t expect to see her on Twitter anytime soon. Or ever.

Wetting her pants in public was only the beginning for Holly J. During a recent visit to Degrassi‘s Toronto set, Charlotte Arnold told me all about the “unreal” drama her character faces in season 11 — we’ll be getting our first taste of her troubles this week — and how “it makes her look at everything in a completely different way.”

“I remember reading it in the read-through and being like, ‘What? This is unreal!'” she said of Holly J’s “Now or Never” story line, which deals with both her declining health and her family life. “But I guess it makes sense.”

She also addressed the question on every Degrassi fan’s mind: Why she’s one of the only cast members not on Twitter!

“My initial aversion to Twitter was just that I didn’t … feel like it was for me,” she said. “Different strokes.”

Watch my interview with Charlotte below, and find out what’s really wrong with Holly J during this week’s new episodes of Degrassi (Monday through Thursday at 9 p.m. on Teen Nick.)
