Recently, I was lucky enough to have a chat with Paula Brancati from Degrassi: The Next Generation. You can check out my interview with Paula by clicking here. During our conversation she told me she is starring in a movie called Moon Point. Moon Point is this adorable story about a 24-year old Darryl who goes on a journey in a wagon attached to the back of his friend’s electric wheelchair, to find his one true love. Along this journey he meets new friends and fun characters.

This Thursday, February 2nd is the Canadian release of Moon Point. The movie will officially be in theaters for a week long run in Toronto, Ontario, Canada on February 3rd – February 9th at the AMC Movie Theater at Yonge and Dundas Square.

For my fellow Americans, if you want to see this movie as much as I do, then make it known by liking Moon Point on facebook/MoonPointMovie and twitter @MoonPointMovie. Post comments, show your excitement and maybe just maybe the creators and producers can get this movie to premiere in the states. In the mean time check out the trailer below.

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.
