While you’re getting reacquainted with your fave Degrassi characters, why not meet the new students that will be roaming the halls of Degrassi and bringing the drama when Season 11 returns with new episodes on Friday, February 24! For the next four weeks you have the chance to ‘interview’ the four new grade nine students at Degrassi. Every Wednesday between January 18 and February 8, @MuchDegrassi will conduct Twitter-views or Twitter Interviews with Ricardo Hoyos, Lyle O’Donohoe, Olivia Scriven and Alex Steele who will be playing Zig, Tristan, Maya and Tori! But we need your help!
Each week a different actor will be on Twitter starting at 8 pm ET on Wednesday and answering questions on Twitter that @MuchDegrassi asks – but the questions are yours! Submit your questions in the comments section below and then make sure you’re following the cast of Degrassi and @MuchDegrassi to watch the Twitter-view go down Wednesday at 8 pm ET.
This week @MuchDegrassi will interview Alex Steele (@alexasteele) who is playing Tori Santamaria. Tori’s parents have indulged her every whim with a stream of dance lessons, kid modeling jobs, and beauty pageants.
Having never heard “no” or a negative word, Tori enters grade nine believing she’s the best at everything. But while Tori is ‘spoiled’, she’s not really a ‘brat’– her positive attitude and winning smile rub off on nearly everyone she meets. Tori forces herself into every high school performing realm: music, drama, dance, sometimes threatening to get her parents involved when she isn’t given her “deserved” role. She also realizes how sheltered and unhip she is when she comes in contact with older students. Despite these setbacks, nothing’s gonna stop Tori. She is ready to rule Degrassi – or at least grade nine.
Submit your questions for Alex in the comments section below and make sure you’re following @alexasteele and @MuchDegrassi and are on Twitter at 8 pm ET this Wednesday following a new episode of Degrassi TMI at 7:30 pm ET on MuchMusic! And don’t forget that the interview is on Twitter – so keep your questions close to 140 characters or less! Want to join in the Twitter-view on Wednesday? Use the hashtage #DegrassiTMI.
And as an added bonus for getting to interview your new besties on Degrassi, the best question each week will receive a Degrassi prize pack! But that’s not all! In Week 4 we’ll pick a winner who will receive a Skype call from a Degrassi cast member!
