Actress Shirley Douglas was on the set of Degrassi: The Next Generation for a guest appearance — although she admits she didn’t know until recently that the show was still in production.
Douglas said she was surprised when she got the invitation to appear on the wildly popular teen show.
“I used to watch Degrassi a long time ago, and I didn’t realize they’re still making it, because I don’t have any children at home and I don’t watch a lot of television for young people,” Douglas said in an interview. “So I was very excited when I heard they were still doing it.”
The 73-year-old Toronto-based actress has a role as head of the theatre department at a college that one of the Degrassi characters has applied to.
