INTERVIEW: Paula Brancati of ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’

Since I can’t get enough Degrassi: The Next Generation, I thought I would interview Paula Brancati who played Jane, a rebellious feminist in seasons 7 and on. Now to be honest I kinda stopped watching around season 5 and 6 as I got engulfed in life and had no cable for a couple years. But after talking to Paula about the last couple seasons, she made me realize I missed some of the best parts of Degrassi. Now, I am on a Degrassi kick catching up (through Netflix) on episodes and loving it.

In addition to being on Degrassi, Paula told me of all the wonderful things going on in her life; from singing on the road with her brother, starring in plays and musicals, and of course making movies. Most recently she released a movie on ABC Family called Desperately Seeking Santa, which if you did not get to see over the holidays you can now view on Hulu.  Later on in the Interview we talk briefly of a independent film she is starring in called Moon Point, directed by Sean Cisterna, which sadly is not yet in the States but that’s another blog. ;)

So, let’s get to know this fun bubbly talented young woman, shall we.

Could you describe to us your character Jane, what she is like in the show for those fans that never watched the later Degrassi episodes?

Totally, well I am off the show now but Jane came in at the beginning of season 7.  I was on the show for three years and then we sort of did this final Degrassi Takes Manhattan. I think it was called “The Heat Is On” in the states? It was called  Degrassi Takes Manhattan: The Heat is On  for you guys and that was my characters closing story line. We got to go shoot in New York and that was very cool.

If you were a fan of Degrassi: The Next Generation growing up then you remember Andrea Lewis. She played Hazel Aden the snotty sarcastic popular girl who had a sweet side. Since ending her role in Degrassi, Andrea has taken the world by storm. From releasing her album; 5-4-3-2-1, to starring in the Nickelodeon movie Spectacular! and launching her website ThoseGirlsAreWild.com —this girl has done it all. We also get to hear a little bit about the pilot show she is working on based on her popular website. Through this pilot, Andrea shows us that’s it’s okay to be a fun and silly girl. You don’t have to conform to what society deems as normal behavior for a women. That is something that I think Defective Geeks and Those Girls Are Wild Ladies have in common. Were all just trying to have a good time.

Below I talk with Andrea about being on Degrassi and the plans for ThoseGirlAreWild.com.
