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.

Charlie (Degrassi)                                 Rando (Being Erica)

The Newest Recruit of 15 Division

by The Girl

Look who showed up as a new recruit on the Season 2 Finale of Rookie Blue!

It’s Shannon Kook-Chun, better known as Zane Park from Degrassi!

I believe this now the fifth Degrassi actor to guest star on Rookie Blue, all in the second season. Another classic “keeping it in the Canada!” Who can forget Cory Lee (Ms. Oh) & Samantha Munro (Anya MacPherson) in episode 206? Jordan Todosey (Adam Torres) appeared in 204. And John Bregar (Dylan Michalchuk) in 209.

Castle – S03E19 “Law & Murder”

The Good Wife – S02E18 “Killer Song”

The Event – S01E15 “Face Off”

The Vicki/Sean team-up was so great (“It was our target!”), excited for that to continue

They’ve had some pretty great episode endings on this show so far!

The Big Bang Theory – S04E19 “The Zarnecki Incursion”

Grey’s Anatomy – S07E18 “Song Beneath the Song”

While the Grey’s musical episode was kind of really random. I did like that the music selection was consistent. Typical Alex P songs were used! Even some that were used on the show!

Degrassi – S10E41 “Chasing Pavements, Part 1”

Holly J’s face. So hilarious. Such a Coyne magnet!

This Week’s Favorite Guest Stars

by The Girl

François Chau (Lost’s Dr. Pierre Chang) guest starred on The Chicago Code as the head of Chicago’s Chinatown, Chairman Lao.

Lee Thompson Young joined The Event as Corporal Bell. One of the Inostranka guards.

I literally laughed out loud when Zoie Palmer (Lauren from Lost Girl) showed up on Degrassi as a police officer. From one Canadian show to another!

90210 – S03E17 “Blue Naomi”

Naomi made a REALLY good Na’vi. I think that was the only take away from the entire episode, right? Well besides Ade’s revenge

Gossip Girl – “S04E17 Empire Of The Son”

Another one bites the dust. Serena’s men have no hope. You gave it a kind of good run, Ben.

Castle – S03E17 “Countdown”

Ryan & Esposito were so cute!

How I Met Your Mother – S06E18 “A Change Of Heart”

I love Nora. Maybe it’s only because she’s British. Or really attractive. Or British. Maybe. Also, I was a really big fan of the doctor! She was hilarious.

Pretty Little Liars – S01E19 “A Person of Interest”

Narration through gps. brilliant move.

Greek – S04E09 “Agents for Change”

Franny! Pledge Spidey acting like the Biebs! I can’t believe this was the penultimate episode of Greek!!!

Skins (US) – S01E07 “Michelle”

Actually good! One of the best so far. “Watch out Katie Cadie,” Michelle’s giving you a run for your money. Also, that hair+jacket. beau’iful

The Cape – S01E09 “Razer”

This is the penultimate of The Cape too!! Which is sad since the episode kind of sucked…

The Chicago Code – S01E04 “Cabrini Green”

I love the Jennifer Beals “what is going on” faces.

The Good Wife – S02E16 “Great Firewall”

Most satisfying end to an episode. LOVE Eli/Becca scenes!

Skins (UK) – S05E06 “Alo”

Brilliant as usual. The scenes with Alo & Mini were wonderful. NICK LEVAN IS AMAZING!

Degrassi – S10E37 “Jesus, Etc.”

I loved the use of the pay phone! Oh Degrassi Community School and your rigid new rules!
