Warning: Stop reading if you haven’t seen the Aug. 15 episode of ‘Degrassi!’
When Adam (Jordan Todosey) crashed into a tree in the final moments of Degrassi‘s Aug. 8 episode, I’m sure we all had similar thoughts, ranging from “He’ll be fine” to “Maybe he’ll have a broken leg.” But no one could have predicted just how serious this accident would be — nor the weight of the message it would carry.
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…
Lots of changes this week! Should Anya give Owen a chance? Will Alli get back with Drew? Read on & tell us!
Just as Annie Clarkhinted in our interview, the April 8 episode of Degrassi brought the end of “Fadam,” as Fiona finally realized she only liked the girl-half of transgender boyfriend Adam (Jordan Todosey.) And while the announcement came as a shock to Mama Coyne (aka the classiest woman of all time), I think everyone’s a little relieved to hear Fiona’s not into guys — at least this means she won’t be kissing her brother again!
And, check out an exclusive clip of Fiona & Adam’s date from tonight’s episode!
Champagne-chugging, brother-kissing, sexuality-swapping Fiona (Annie J. Clark) is always full of surprises — but no one was more surprised than Holly J. (Charlotte Arnold) when Fiona kissed her at the end of last week’s Degrassi. On tonight’s episode, Annie tells HollywoodLife.com, we’ll see a whole lot of awkwardness between the two friends. Oh, and she also has some not-so-good news for fans of Fiona and Adam’s (Jordan Todosey) relationship.
I hope you’re all ready to “go there,” because Degrassi returns TONIGHT (July 19) with six weeks of new nightly episodes — and one very controversial new character!
Abortions? School shootings? Puh-lease! Everyone’s favorite Canadian teen drama, Degrassi, has already covered that ground. But this season, which kicks off at 9 p.m. tonight on TeenNick with an epic two-hour movie, will finally introduce a character not yet represented at Degrassi Community School — a transgender student! The character, played by Jordan Todosey, goes by the name of Adam, despite being born as a girl. “The writing is good,” Jordan tells CTV News. “They really go there with that kind of stuff and I think that this character can really speak for anybody who is outcast or bullied or transgender or anything like that.”
