The most common question I receive is people asking how they can be on Degrassi. Sometimes I get extremely serious inquiries from people who think I work for the show (I do not work for Epitome, and am not affiliated with the show in any way).
In the video below, Abby Ho talked to the show’s Background Casting Director, Krista Fraser, about how you can be an extra on the show. And in case you decide to skip the video, here’s a reminder:
1) To be on Degrassi, you MUST be a Canadian Citizen. Dual citizenship is okay. Stephen Stohn also mentioned that people with work visas are also eligible.
2) You MUST have an agent. As Krista explains in the video, people used as extras are hired through agencies (lead actors also have agents). A primary source for finding an agent in Canada: http://actratoronto.com/
