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.
