Miriam McDonald’s time on Degrassi: TNG as Emma could be coming to an end…for now.
Miriam posted a blog on her myspace page saying that she’s going to take a break from acting so she can focus on university. All of this info came from Miriam Source, the #1 Miriam McDonald fansite, and you can check there for updates on Miriam in the future. Here’s the blog post below:
So, I know some of you have been wondering, “Where ya been?” or “Is she alive?” And the answer to number one is I have been all around!!! The next question, I’m feeling the most alive I have ever felt right now!!!! Lately, my mind has been all over the place. First, I will be attending university in the fall!!! I am so unbelievably excited. I feel like I am becoming a new person, a better person in fact. I feel as though I am truly growing up, and seeing the person I am destined to become. Haha! I was so excited, my friend was like “So, we goin’ out tonight?” she seemed as if she figured I’d say no, but instead I replied “Ohhhhh we’re GOING OUT!!!!” haha so I grabbed my girls and went around Hollywood/LA area spreading my joy and enlightenment. (picture for proof in my Personal Photos album) as well as my nice neon bandaid (proof that I tripped and fell in the middle of Beverly Hills, part of me embarrassed the other part simply laughed my ass off). Ok back to the original topic. Seeing as I will be a freshman student at University the actress in me is OFFICIALLY on hiatus (you may have seen that already if you have me added on my OFFICIAL twitter page) and I thought I would let my fans know that first. While, I love each and everyone of my fans and love acting, I have to join the real world sometime and that includes attending college, afterall, I will never know what life will throw my way and a degree will help me hence I hope you all fully understand my choices! Just lately, I have been thinking about everything. I can’t believe my birthday is LESS THAN a month away. It makes me wonder, where did the time go? I remember last year around this time, and how foolish I was. I was ridiculous, and wreckless and I know I’ll be thinking the same thing next year around this time, thinking “Wow, I was twenty-two years old, and still as foolish as a five year old.” But, this also makes me wonder, will it EVER stop…does an 85 year old talk about how foolish and childish they were when they were 70? Haha, I don’t know just a thought and I really want everyone’s in take on it. Thanks! Why might you ask if my topic “Benjamin Button Moment.” Well, that’s because as I was saying I feel BRAND NEW. I am so excited, and I feel as if I’m growing temporarily younger with this enthusiasm. Too bad it won’t last haha!! Well, I know this is rather short but, I fear I must be off!
This really doesn’t come as a big blow to the show since the older characters on Degrassi are being phased out, but it is sad to see her go…I mean Emma IS the reason The Next Generation was created.
