The ‘Degrassi’ cast tells all: Find out who cried, who’s sticking around, and who’s drowning their sorrows in ‘Star Wars!’
This week doesn’t just mark the end of Degrassi: Now or Never — it also marks the graduation, and final episodes, of some of our favorite characters! HollywoodLife.com sat down with Charlotte Arnold, Raymond Ablack and Samantha Munro during a recent visit to the show’s Toronto set to get their thoughts on the big finale. I hope you’ve got some tissues handy.
“I’m really going to miss playing Anya,” Samantha says. “She cries a lot, if you haven’t noticed, and I’m going to have nowhere to cry anymore, so I’m going to have to do it at home. With sad movies.” (Star Wars, if co-star Daniel Kelly has anything to say about it.)
Ray, on the other hand, isn’t merely looking back on the past; he’s got big plans for the future. “I’m buying new clothing!” he reveals. “I’ve never really spent money on clothing, but I feel like I graduated high school for the second time in my life … and I’m ready to reinvent myself.”
And then there’s Charlotte. Along with reflecting on how far Holly J has come over the years — let us not forget the mean girl that slapped poor Darcy’s lunch out of her hand — Charlotte also says she soaked up every last minute of her time on set.
“I only cried a little bit,” she admits.
