Degrassi is without a doubt the most beloved Canadian teen drama, all starting with The Kids of Degrassi Street way back in 1979. Since then, the show has seen season after season including Degrassi Junior High, Degrassi High, Degrassi: The Next Generation and soon to be Degrassi: Next Class, which means there has been a revolving door of casts and characters filled with a majority of teen actors. Given its popularity, it is truly surprising not more of the young actors find success after their turn on the show, and only a select few out of the numerous stars have been able to make a name for themselves outside of the halls of Degrassi. Check out 8 Degrassi stars who managed to find success after appearing on the show.
8. Dylan Everett
Dylan Everett was a new addition to Degrassi: The Next Generation in Season 12 as Campbell Saunders, and instantly became a fan favorite, before his storyline took a tragic turn at the end of the season. While fans were sad to learn Cam definitely would not be back, Everett has made himself known to a wider audience since leaving the show. He has appeared on popular shows such as Rookie Blue, and Supernatural as a young Dean Winchester and most notably for portraying Mark-Paul Gosselaar in Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story. In addition, he also appeared in the popular TeenNick series Open Heart.
