On her 'Degrassi' character, Terri McGreggor: "There are things I like and don't like about Terri. I like that she's so laid back and that she's nice. The only thing I don't like is that she's so self-conscious, but it's realistic, 'cause there are lots of people like that. I think lots of girls relate to Terri."
