What do The Vampire Diaries’ Nina Dobrev, 90210’s Shenae Grimes and hip hop singer Drake have in common? They all graduated from Canada’s hit teen soap Degrassi: The Next Generation. In an interview with Pop Eater, Degrassi Blog founder Kary Bowser predicts they won’t be the only ones to hit it big in Hollywood. He anticipates Landon Liboiron and Aislinn Paul may be the next Degrassi stars to make the jump.
On Landon Liboiron,
"He was just cast in a Fox Show called 'Terra Nova.' It's filming this month and will air next year," he says. "Its executive producer is Steven Spielberg, so I'm willing to bet Landon, who's a really talented actor as is, gets a ton of exposure from that."
On Aislinn Paul,
"The progression of her character and her growth as an actor has been outstanding," he says. "She's been written to be a lot more mature, and I think if she goes for it, she could follow in her 'big sister's' footsteps."
