  • Peter from Degrassi needs to cut that hair. Emma don’t need to be dating someone with the same hair as her. Seriously Jamie Johnston, cut it!

    Was Ishan one of those two quirky kids from RFR?

  • I’m not 100% sure! I must admit, I’ve never actually watched Renegade Press or Radio Free Roscoe (I’m assuming that’s what RFR stands for!)

  • I loved Radio Free Roscoe (RFR) and was sad when it went off the air.

  • WAIT, Ishan Dave is the jerkoff that plays LINUS, head of “Friendship Club” and King of Douchebags on Degrassi. That kids a tool. Look at that hair in those photos. Ugh.

  • Yeah, he was on Degrassi this season as well!

  • Wait, I just noticed Katie Todd who looks really odd with that blonde hair. Love her though! RIP Lily

  • Sarah

    Wow. I miss RFR. I didn’t realize how much until I saw a pic of Kate. That show… it was greatness.

  • concernedcitizen

    why must i hear about this from your BLOG?

  • Amy

    I love RFR and miss it so much. Degrassi one of my fave shows!!! MMM Jamie is so sexy!!! Can’t wait till season 6!
    P.S Love the podcast!

  • Thanks for the kind words. So glad you enjoy the Podcast. Thanks for listening!

  • Jenn

    mmm, i dunno, i like ishan’s hair 😀
    also on imdb it says he’s going to be in this movie with Robert Downey Jr. !!!
    im excited!!!

  • Jaz

    I think Jamie’s hair looks awesome and so does Kate’s

  • lol

    lol at who said ishan looks like a jerk.
    he goes to my former high school.
    and former elementary school.

  • dilldally

    omg which one is Nina Dobrev. She is playing Mia the new character on Degrassi for season 6. I just cant figure out which one is her.

  • Jamie Johnston has the exact same look on his face in both pictures and that is NOT what Kate Todd is supposed to look like. I miss the good ol’ days of RFR.

  • Daisha

    um yeah jamie johnston definately SHOULDNT cut his hair! he is soo hot!!

  • i like juilias hair!!

  • Todd Wiseman

    thanx for the GREAT MELANIE photo !!

    she is absolutely gorgeous wOw !!!

    those cheekbones & lips are heavenLy ——–

  • Ishan’s my brother and he thrives off of your pesimistic viewer remarks (only those who give it)and those who give stupid comments cause it makes him laugh at your “tool” remarks. His hair, make-up, wardrobe etc is done by the show, he doesn’t pick what he wears. Yes, he is a legend. “Charlie Bartlett” watch his movie in ’07!

  • Tygr

    I’ve heard about Renegade Press from a ‘friend’ who watches. Glad to see it get some real press. So Ishan is on Renegade Press and he was “Linus” on DTNG last season. He did a GREAT job at playing a jerk!

    Nina has gorgeous hair. I can see her with JT on DTNG. Who is ‘unknown’ girl in that first photo, with the shades, btw? The chin looks familiar.

    Jamie looks stoned. Perpetually. In all of his current pictures. I think he’s tryiing to see past the bangs. Word to whoever said his hair style is too similar to his on-screen gf, St. Emma of the Plastic Bracelets. They REALLY look like sibs now! Ick factor just went up a notch.

    Bregar still looks like a predator. I think it’s the shark-y smile.

    Oh and Kate, Kate, Kate…your brown hair suited you so much more than this blonde hair.

  • damien

    unknown is sarah black..yeah i recognize her from somwhere too…

  • Kate Todd looks like she got sun burn, but she still looks hot. lol.
    ANd Nina is the first girl on the left.

  • and Nina Reminds me of Gabriella of High School Musical!!!

  • I luv Nina and Jamie, Nina is in degrassi aswell, u know, mia, she’s an amazing actress

  • famousprofessional

    it’s funny reading all these comments….I know almost all of the ppl in these pics and it’s interesting what you say about them. I wonder what they would think if they saw this…probably laugh! All Im saying is these are all actors/actresses and they live normal lives aside from our favourite shows so we cant tell them how to look, and hair makeup and wardrobe decide that for alot of press stuff and shows. like DUH!!!

    Things to be cleared up:
    -unknown girl is a friend of these ppl and works with them as well….shes also my sister/bff so i would be nice to her lol
    -kate todd never had dark hair to start off with so we cant complain about the blonde trust me shes gorgeous in person (amazingly sweet too)
    -Nina, is from Degrassi and is awesome on the show! Check her out, you’d know if you paid attention to characters. She’s super sweet too!
    -As for everyone else, just be nice honestly they’re cool and they’re style is their business not ours…

    Ok thats all for now 🙂
