Webby | Categories: Interviews | Comment

Which of Elena’s The Vampire Diaries kills made Nina Dobrev feel like a bad ass? Whose script does Kat Graham have framed? What moment from Season 2 does Candice Accola call epic? The stars of the CW drama are sharing these answers and more.

As the series hits the 100-episode milestone, TVGuide.com spoke with five of the show’s original cast members as they looked back on five seasons of love, loss and much more. You can check out Part 1 of the retrospective with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley here.

FAVORITE EPISODE
Season 1, Episode 6, “Lost Girls”
Dobrev:
I’ve always said that my favorite to this day is “Lost Girls” from Season 1 because it was fun for me to explore and see Katherine in a different period and then also see Elena in present day figuring it all out. I had so much fun shooting that episode and I loved the way it turned out. Kayla [Ewell] was so good in that episode; [she] was so heart-breaking.

Season 1, Episode 1, “Pilot”
Accola:
I still love the pilot. I watched it a bunch of times and was just so excited.

Jan 17th: Drake, Nina Dobrev and More Degrassi Alums: Where Are They Now?

Webby | Categories: News | Comment

Started from the Dot and now they’re here.

Sure, some people may just know Drake as the Grammy award-winning Canadian rapper set to host Saturday Night Live tomorrow night, but to Degrassi: The Next Generation fans, he’ll always be Jimmy Brooks, the school’s star basketball player who was confined to a wheelchair after a tragic school shooting.

But Drake (ahem, Aubrey Graham for longtime fans of the TeenNick series), isn’t the only actor to break out from the Canadian teen soap, known for tackling tough topics and sensitive subjects, such as teen pregnancy, suicide, drug abuse and more. You name it, Degrassi has done a very special episode about it (it goes there). The Vampire Diaries’ star Nina Dobrev also got her start on Degrassi, as well as several other CW actors

We decided to check in on some of our favorite stars of the long-running drama, which is currently in its 13th season, well over 300 episodes, with no signs of slowing down (it’s a Canadian national treasure is what we’re saying), including Lauren Collins (What’s up, hun?!), Jake Epstein (still swooning over Craig Manning!) and Shenae Grimes (Is Darcy still in Kenya?) among others.

Whatever it takes, we know you can make it through…our gallery below to see what the Degrassi cast is up to now.

(And apologies to fans of characters such as Ashley Kerwin, Liberty Van Zandt and Alex Nunez, we couldn’t include everyone. We do have to pretend to have some semblance of a social life.)
