Cory says it was ‘awesome’ getting to ditch Ms. Oh’s ‘straight and narrow’ persona. Do you support this taboo new couple?
Admit it: From the moment Ms. Oh (Cory Lee) entered Degrassi‘s hallowed halls, you knew it was only a matter of time before she got it on with a student — and she finally did just that with Sav (Ray Ablack) on last night’s episode! I chatted with Cory and Ray during a recent visit to Degrassi‘s Toronto set and they told me why they love their hot new storyline.
For Cory, it was all about getting to break out of the Ms. Oh mold.
“Playing the normal Ms. Oh role is more of a challenge for me,” Cory admits. “Someone a little more straight-and-narrow, to the rules, very authoritative. [Getting to switch that up] was awesome.
Ray had some fun with the storyline as well, noting that the age difference between the characters helped Sav to grow… as a man.
“Sav’s always been this shy, not-able-to-look-people-in-the-eye kind of kid. I feel towards the end of this year, especially with Ms. Oh, he’s become a bit of a man from this ‘adult relationship’ he’s trying to maneuver his way through.”
