|Jordan Todosey as Adam the trans-gender student.|
The past few weeks Degrassi has had the boiling point in full swing, 4 nights a week with the new kids.
|Ali & Drew|
2. Drew, a fantastic athlete, is pretty much dumb in the academic department. But Ali (smart kid, we guess) doesn't care. She just wants to be popular with a very cute guy and will go that extra mile to get him..as she does with Drew through party-time,etc. However, this really gets to be on again off again. Bottom line..Drew is a player.
3. His sister/brother, Adam has the strangest of story-line, but the writers want to make aware trans-gender issues. More so than any other time in history, we are making waves to let those decide even in middle school or earlier if they want to be a boy or a girl. In Adam's case, she feels she is a boy trapped in a girl's body. And yes, Adam likes girls but she doesn't feel she's 'gay'..just trapped. Thus, dressing as a girl.. she starts burning herself. One good thing is the relationship between Adam and Drew. He is there for her. No matter what.
|Bianca the trouble-maker|
5. One of the most delights of the show during the boiling point was Munro Chamber's Eli. He starts with telling Clare..she has pretty eyes. He's a bit of a goth dude. Kind of scheming when he gets bullied. And a real romeo with Clare. Or so she thought. He's haute. He's cold. Eli's got a secret. And his best friend is Adam.
But wait there's more. LOCK-DOWN this week.
