While you’re getting reacquainted with your fave Degrassi characters every Monday to Thursday night at 7:30 pm ET for Degrassi TMI, 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 three 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! Degrassi fans interviewed Alex Steele this past Wednesday at you can check that out here!
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 Ricardo Hoyos (@ricardohoyos2) who is playing Zig Novak. To the other grade nines, Zig’s the handsome, charming, and aloof bad boy of their class. Full of swagger, he flirts with the pretty girls, keeps the dudes laughing with his pranks and antics, and finds himself in detention more often than he should– though he can usually talk his way out of the trouble. And there’s a reason he treats Degrassi as his playground– his home life isn’t nearly as fun.
Submit your questions for Ricardo in the comments section below and make sure you’re following @ricardohoyos2 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!
