AfterEllen Interviews Cristine Prosperi on Fimogen’s Future

Fiona and Imogen (better known as ‘Fimogen’) are arguably one of Degrassi’s most popular couples. One half of that power couple – Cristine Prosperi – recently did an interview with AfterEllen.com, discussing Fimogen as well as her experience playing a LGBT character on television.

In the interview, Cristine reveals that she was surprised, although “super comfortable” with playing Imogen after discovering that she would be dating Fiona. On Imogen’s sexuality, Cristine says that she thinks Imogen “just likes people in general,” but that she really likes Fiona and Imogen together. In particular, the fan reaction to the relationship has resonated with Cristine -

AE: Once the bisexual story started, what were you hearing from fans out there who were maybe experiencing the same thing in their lives?
CP: On Twitter, we get tons of mentions saying “I just came out to my parents. Thank you so much for helping me.” Also, “I feel more comfortable with my girlfriend” and “I feel more comfortable with my sexuality.” I get these all the time and it’s so refreshing and great that we get to connect with the fans that way because it’s so relatable. That’s the best part of being on the show, for sure.

Degrassi Online Visits Much Music!


Last night for the season premiere, Ashley and myself were given the opportunity to hang out at the Much Music studio while they were filming the live hits. We got to meet Aislinn, Cristine, and Lauren Toyota as well as watch the episode live with them. We also got to watch them film the live hits during the commercial breaks.

It was so much fun to meet everybody! They were just as nice as you would expect. Aislinn and Cristine are definitely Degrassi fans in their own right! Ashley and I will tell you all about it in next week’s episode of Degrassi Talks (stay tuned)!

I was lucky enough to be able to take a few pictures while they were filming. Check them out in our gallery!

Much Music Releases New Behind the Scenes Clips

It’s that time of the year again. The week before the premiere of the new season of Degrassi always gets a little crazy. Add this to the many behind the scenes clips that will be released in the next week or so. Much Music has started posting new BTS interviews with the cast. The first is with Munro and Justin, who discuss their characters and who is better for Clare (a very important question)!

Also check out this interview with Cristine Prosperi who plays Imogen in Season 11. She introduces her character, and talks about this being her first day on set!

I think we can expect a lot more of these little interviews from Much Music leading up to Monday’s premiere. Keep an eye on MuchMusic.com, and I’ll continue to edit this post as well.

EDIT: Much Music added interviews with Chloe & more with Justin today (July 14th)! Watch them right here.
