Pronto Toronto: from Degrassi to Being Erica

by The Girl

This week’s epsiode of Being Erica saw the return of Lauren Collins (best known for playing Paige on Degrassi)!

As with all Canadian shows, we’ve seen a lot of familiar faces on Being Erica. Below are the Degrassi stars we’ve seen on Being Erica!

Paula Brancati

The ultimate accomplishment. Paula Brancati was a series regular on both Degrassi & Being Erica at the same time. While it’s impressive she was on two shows, what’s more impressive is on the shows she played ages 17 and 32, respectively.

 Jane Vaughn (Degrassi)                                     Jenny Zalen (Being Erica)

John Bregar

Dylan Michalchuk (Degrassi)                                 Barrett (Being Erica)

Aubrey Graham

Jimmy Brooks (Degrassi)                                 Ken (Being Erica)

Cory Lee

Ms. Oh (Degrassi)                                 Chantel (Being Erica)

Lauren Collins

Has appeared in two episodes as Young Barb (Erica’s mother).

Paige Michalchuk (Degrassi)                                 Young Barb Strange (Being Erica)

Jake Goldsbie

Jake Goldsbie, Jake Epstein, & Alexandria Benoit were all in the same episode together.

Toby Isaacs (Degrassi)                                 Beezer (Being Erica)

Jake Epstein

Craig Manning (Degrassi)                                 Malcolm Abrams (Being Erica)

Alexandria Benoit

Sadie Rowland (Degrassi)                                 Rachel Zimmerman (Being Erica)

Shannon Kook-Chun

Rich Taiwanese playboy partier of undetermined age. Everything he did was hilarious.

Zane Park (Degrassi)                                 Kendrick Kwan (Being Erica)

Adamo Ruggiero

Adamo has made two appearances as Brant’s assistant at River Rock Publishing.

Marco Del Rossi (Degrassi)                                 Luis (Being Erica)

Tamara Duarte

While I don’t actually like Charlie on Degrassi (recurring character), Tamara Duarte’s guest spot on Being Erica is one of the funniest things I’ve seen. She played a Latina Floridian that gets in a fight with her cheating boyfriend & Jenny (Paula Brancati).

Her whole scene is throwing things & yelling in Spanish. It is amazing.
