Pictures: Degrassi in Ghana

Once again, Jessica Tyler proves herself to be one of our favourite Degrassians by posting an album of pictures from Degrassi’s recent trip to Ghana on her Facebook page!

The album includes pictures of the cast at the airport, on the beach in Ghana, and even in Amsterdam presumably traveling to/from Ghana. She got some great pictures!

Remember that We Day is less than a month away now (!!). I’m sure we will hear even more about the Ghana trip as we get closer to the event. For more information (and also pictures from the Degrassi Ghana trip), check out the Me to We Facebook Page!


Interview: Jessica Tyler with The GATE

The season 12 interviews just keep coming!

Check out this interview with Jessica Tyler from TheGate.ca in which she discusses Jenna’s life after the adoption, her music career, and Degrassi’s upcoming trip to Africa.


Interview: Jessica Tyler with Channel Guide Magazine

What’s going on with Jenna this season? We haven’t heard too much. But in a new interview with Channel Guide Magazine, Degrassi star Jessica Tyler gave us a few hints.

In the interview, Jessica also discusses the very popular (and intense) adoption storyline from season 11 as well as her music on and off the show. As for Jenna’s storyline in season 12, it looks like Jenna will be trying to move forward from last season:

So what’s going on in Season 12 so far? What should we expect for Jenna and in general?
Right now, we’re about halfway through the season that we’re filming now, but when we come back, in terms of Jenna, she will have just broken up with K.C. and given the baby away, so she’s coming back to school hoping to have a fresh start, maybe make some new friends and try to move on from the past in a positive way.
Basically, this whole season is about picking sides between the characters here. There’s all of this drama going on, as always, so Jenna and Becky — a new character — they become friends, and as Jenna’s values in life and views start to change, it’s all about picking sides and what’s right, what’s wrong this season. It’s kind of like that for every character
.

Jessica Tyler, Sam Earle, and Melinda Shankar were in Montreal today for Free The Children’s event We Day.

The cast of Degrassi was there to share their experiences volunteering during their recent trip to Haiti. The Degrassi cast has been involved with We Day from the beginning. They also appeared at the Toronto event last fall (which I was lucky enough to attend), as well as many other We Day’s from years past.
