SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading if you haven’t watched the Sept. 1 mid-season finale of ‘Degrassi!’ You’ve been warned…
OK, first of all, how incredible was the Degrassi: Now or Never finale?! I was fortunate enough to be on set the day they filmed it, and I’m pretty sure my ears are still ringing from Vince’s (Brendan Jeffers) gunshot. I also got to hold the bullet that ultimately found its way into poor Adam (Jordan Todosey), before grilling the actress on what it’s like to play a transgender character — and where she’d like to see Adam go from here…
First order of business? Jordan wants to see Adam finally in a happy, stable relationship. (Maybe he’ll meet a cute nurse, you know, now that he’s been shot.)
“I hope that Adam can find somebody so sweet, where they just get along and they both feel comfortable with each other,” Jordan said. “I think that would just be the sweetest.”
And just as Adam is becoming more comfortable in his skin, Jordan is slowly getting in touch with her inner guy — starting with her new wardrobe.
“Most people think guys can wear whatever — but no, man!” she says. “There’s, like, boxers and big socks. … There are a lot of layers that guys put on. Girls never really notice it.”
(On behalf of guys everywhere — thank you, Jordan, for understanding how truly difficult our lives can be.)
