Keith Powers is a leading man on the rise. He is in the series, “Sin City Saints”. You may have also seen him in “Fear The Walking Dead”, and “Straight Outta Compton”. You can catch him in MTV’s “Faking It”, which is back for the back half of season 2 tonight.

First things first Keith, can you tell us a bit about your life growing up in Sacramento?

Growing up in Sacramento was a blessing to me because it keeps me grounded. I come from humble beginnings. I also appreciate being from the capital of California. Only things is, it is easy to become close minded as well. Where I grew up in Sacramento, you were either playing sports, in the streets, or a scholar. Growing up I did not do the little things like go fishing, camping, ski trips, etc. My family was a very athletic type family so my childhood consisted of of sports and cartoons.

Talk a bit about your start in modeling and your transition to acting.

I started modeling when I was 9 actually, then I stopped to continue to play football. My mom wanted me to pick between the two, and at the time sports was more appealing. Then after highschool things did not work out with football, so I decided to get back into modeling. I got signed by JE Model SF in San Francisco then later signed to Wilhelmina LA. I then signed to my commercial agency HRI Talent.

So “Faking It”  is back. What can people expect from the second half of Season 2? Should we expect to see your character in season 3?

People can expect new characters, more drama and more fun. We will have to see!

You’re in the Yahoo series, “Sin City Saints”. Can you describe your role and the premise of the series for those who have not yet been introduced to it?

I play a NBA rookie superstar point guard on an expansion team in Las Vegas. It is based around an Las Vegas basketball team and the owner Jake Tullus, who is an internet billionaire that decided to purchase a Vegas NBA basketball team. He soon finds out it is harder than he expected.

What do you like about your character LaDarius?

I like the fact that he is this superstar but also in reality he is young, naive, a helpless romantic, bratty and sensitive. He is very opposite to me in real life and it is cool to play both those dynamics.

What was it like filming “Sin City Saints”? How long did it take to finish filming the entire season?

It was fun filming Sin City Saints, I loved shooting in Vegas! It took close to 8 weeks to finish the season.

As a boxing fan and one of Floyd Mayweather Jr. How did you feel about the mega fight this past May?

The fight ended up being just how I expected. I think people overhyped the fight because we thirst for it for so long and that is why a bunch of people were mad about the outcome.

Who do you listen music to get inspired whether it’s before a shoot, filming, ect?

I listen to all different type of music to get inspired before shoots, etc. But right now I have been listening to Future’s ’56 Nights’ mixtape.

You were in the movie “Straight Outta Compton.” This is a monumental and successful film and story told about the legendary group. How did it feel being a part of this moment?

It feels amazing and it’s an honor. I am so grateful and appreciative to be a part of something like this.

You also appeared in the first episode of “Fear The Walking Dead,” and helped usher in a new era. What can tell us about the experience, atmosphere of the series?

The atmosphere was one of the best I have ever witness since acting.

What are some roles that you hope to see yourself doing five years from now?

Biopics, different things you would not normally expect me to be in. And comedies!

Who are some of your favorite actors?

Leonardo Di Caprio, Brad Pitt, Will, Denzel, Michael B Jordan, Margot Robbie, Sandra Bullock, Natalie Portman, Anthony Mackie, Chadwick Boseman, the list goes on!

What is a fun fact that not many people know about you?

Fun fact is I love cereal and video games. LOVE.

What is your most embarrassing moment?

Most embarrassing moment is every time I fell while running in high school. That is the worst.

What is your personal style? Can you also talk a bit about SOAH?

I like the European look mixed with the urban California feel. Soah is a brand I created when I was 19.

Thank you for your time Keith, is there anything that you would like to say to your supporters and our readers?

Hard work is undefeated. Stay humble and stay unsatisfied, but grateful and appreciative. Also, Integrity is everything.


Interview w/ Roberto Aguire


Photo by Marc Cartwright

I am back again with another interview. This time with Roberto Aguire. He can been seen in the movie, Boulevard alongside Robin Williams in what would be Robin’s final on-screen role. Roberto made his onscreen debut in the Chris Colfer film Struck By Lighting. Written by Chris Colfer (Glee), the film received fantastic reviews since it’s premiere. In the film, Roberto plays Emillio, the school’s resident foreign exchange student from El Salvador and consequently, a die-hard womanizer. Check out my interview with him below!

Hey Roberto! So correct me if I’m wrong here. You were born in Los Angeles but spent time in your life being raised in Switzerland. If true, can you explain how long you spent living in Switzerland and the dynamic of living there as opposed to here in the United States?

That is correct! I was born in Los Angeles, lived for a couple of years in Mexico, and then moved to Geneva when I was 11 for about eight years. Living in Switzerland was very different to living in the United States. I would say one of the biggest differences is the multi-cultural prevalence that there is in Switzerland. My high school had 152 different nationalities, so you can imagine how exposed you are to different cultures, languages, religions, and ways of life. It is great because in a sense everyone is a minority, since no one ethnicity is big enough to feel like it looms over the others. Also traveling to different countries is extremely simple from Switzerland because it’s basically in the center of Europe. Getting to Germany, Italy, France, etc usually takes either as little as 10 mins or on the longer side 2 hours. The big thing that you really miss from the US in Switzerland is the availability of anything really. All stores in Geneva close at 6pm on the dot and are only open half days on Saturdays. Absolutely no stores and very few restaurants are open on Sundays. Merchandise runs out quickly, and ordering things takes forever. In the US, anything you need is available 24/7 and if it’s not, you can usually get it within a day or two. When you are trying to buy someone a birthday present, you have to plan weeks ahead to make sure you can get something good! Haha.

Talk a bit about “Boulevard”, your latest film that was released in a few major cities in July?

“Boulevard” is a story about a man coming to terms with the person that he has been pretending to be his whole life and the person that he actually is and wants to be. It also shows that it is never too late to change and start living the life you have always wanted to live. The character I play Leo is actually the catalyst for change in Nolan, the main character’s life. Both Nolan and Leo are broken in their own individual ways, but together they give each other a hand and start to move forward out of this stagnant monotony that they are stuck in.

Now you had the opportunity to work with the late great Robin Williams, what was that experience like?

Indescribable. I really lack adjectives to do him justice. He was the most generous and hard-working actor, both talented and dedicated. He was extremely humble despite his lustrous career, and the kindest human being you’d ever met. He had an incredible intelligence mixed in with a never ending ability to make people laugh. Watching him act was watching a genius breathe profound reality into fiction. I think getting to meet and work with him will have been the most memorable experience of my life.

What have you taken away from from your experiences working on both  “Boulevard” and “Struck By Lightning”?

I think both experiences have just fed my passion for acting even more. They were both so different but at the same time they were both incredible. There’s nothing else I would rather be doing in my life. As actors, we get to walk in different people’s shoes for a living, truly getting to inhabit a moment in their lives and live as they would be living. It is a phenomenal process and immensely enriching, as well as just plain fun. I think both movies have just solidified that this is what I am definitely doing for as long as I’m able to.

Do you consider yourself a more of a comedic actor, or one better suited for the dramatic role? Do you enjoy tackling more serious roles in nature?

I enjoy doing both! They are both so invigorating. When you are making a comedy, you feel like you are playing. When you are making a drama, you feel like you are working. So it is nice to have a balance between working and playing. But I think Robin showed the extent to which you can do both successfully. He was the perfect example of someone who could bounce between both comedy and drama with extreme ease. I would like to be the same way!

What would you like to do next in your acting career? What kind of roles would you like to play?

I am kind of a geek, so personally I would love to be part of a movie that deals with fantasy! Something with dragons, or magic! Another Hobbit or Lord of the Rings! Haha. But professionally I want to tackle roles that really scare me. I think if you keep doing roles that you’re afraid of, it will make you keep growing and you will continue to mature as an actor.

What TV series would you like to be a part of?

Along the lines of what I first said, Game of Thrones would be amazing to be part of! But Modern Family and House of Cards are two of my favorite shows so anything like those two would be great as well!

Thank you Roberto, welcome to the “Blended” family. Is there anything you would like for our readers to know?

Thank you so much! I think we covered it all! Hopefully we will get another chance to chat soon!

Interview w/ Sydney Maler

Sydney Maler is a gorgeous model worth checking out. Sydney took time out of her busy schedule to introduce herself to all of you. Let’s welcome Sydney Maler to the Blended family!

First things first for our readers, can you give five adjectives to describe yourself?






What is it that you enjoy about modeling?

The best part about modeling is that everyday is different. Modeling jobs have gotten me into some pretty random adventures and cool experiences. A photo is a memory to me and a beautiful photo of me on a beach might have a huge story behind it. Most things don’t go as planned and I love being the type of person that sees an “ordeal” as an adventure or an interesting experience.

Have you seen any difference between the way that women and men are treated in the modeling industry?

I don’t believe that, in this day and age, there is too much of a difference between the way men and women are treated in the modeling industry, except that there are, and most likely will always be, more women models than men, but that is just because of the nature of the beast.  I think women are used to being judged by society and can take the abuse better than men :-). I also feel that women have, more often than not, been the advertising world’s target market because they are, by far, greater “consumers” than men, women even buy most of their man’s wardrobe or attire – although that trend seems to be shifting a bit. One thing I’ve found that has changed even in the short time that I have been modeling, is that when I first began, there was a difference in how women treated me compared to men. But recently, I feel like my female audience has grown tremendously and has come to appreciate and embrace the fun, healthy, confident lifestyle I try to live and portray.

You look to be in amazing shape. Are there any specific types of exercises or workouts that you do?

I recently have been trying my hand at boxing. I am not very good at it, but It’s always fun to try new types of workouts. Thankfully, I am extremely good at laughing at myself through all of my fumbles.

What is your ideal vacation?

My ideal vacation is one with friends and family goofing around and just having a good time. I can entertain myself almost anywhere so as long as I have friends and family to laugh and experience new places/people with I’m a happy camper.  I also love the water so my vacation would most likely be water based with plenty of swimming and water sports. Hanging out with or seeing an exotic animals wouldn’t be terrible either. I’m really into swimming with sharks right now, maybe petting a baby lion or holding a baby alligator. I guess I have a pretty random list of very specific things I would like the opportunity to experience involving exotic animals but they are just bucket list items.

What is the best place place you’ve visited?

I have been to a number of pretty cool and exotic places but I recently got back from Florida where I experienced a few perfect days in Miami. I was taken to this beach that had a sand bar on the shore with the most beautifully clear, blue water ever, while sunbathing with friends. It was so relaxing and terribly beautiful.

What’s the weirdest or craziest thing a guy has ever said to you?

This is a tough one. I don’t know what it is about my personality that attracts a large amount of crazy/weird comments from men. On my Instagram, I get a lot of weird comments about breathing my farts and I think that’s particularly odd.

Favorite junk food/guilty pleasure?

My absolute favorite guilty pleasure is rolled tacos drenched in hot sauce from Albertacos by my parents’ house in SD.  I also have an extreme sugar addiction, so If you want to get to my heart, its definitely through any sugary treat.

If you weren’t modeling, what would you be doing?

If I wasn’t modeling I would love to work in advertising and marketing. Which goes semi hand in hand with modeling. I went to school for Marketing and am absolutely intrigued with the psychology behind advertising from large details to the very small ones.

If you could choose one place to shop for the rest of your life, what place would it be?

I’m going to totally cheat on this question and say Nordstrom. I love to jump between styles and they have a large array of styles as well as a great men’s section I sometimes steal from. Not to mention the shoes, purses and jewelry.

What is your dream modeling project? Something you have never done before but would want to do?

I would love to be apart of a surf magazine or Sports Illustrated type team that gets to travel around to some of the most beautiful parts of the world and take beautiful photos. I kind of get to do this now, but I would love to travel more and have that part of my job be more of my constant life.

What is the most embarrassing moment of your life?

I don’t get embarrassed very easily so its always hard to think of particular times when I was truly embarrassed.

What are your top five favorite songs?

Hotel California- Eagles

Suicidal Thoughts- Biggie Smalls

What I got- Sublime

You know you like it- DJ Snake & AlunaGeorge

She is love- Parachute

What was your dream growing up?

Truthfully, I didn’t think modeling was really an option for me because I thought being a “model” meant you had to be 9 ft tall and 80 pounds, soaking wet. I wanted to pursue advertising and marketing, the behind-the-scenes of creating ads and commercials. I never even considered actually being in the ads or commercials myself, so this has been an amazing experience I have been able to experience at this early juncture of my life.

Do you believe in love?

Yes, I believe in love. I think that it’s extremely hard to find, but extremely amazing when it hits you.  I also think that you can be “in love” with more than just your significant other. Being in love with your friends and family is way underrated and overlooked.

Do you have any plans for the Fourth of July this year?

I do not have plans for the Fourth yet. Want to hangout?

Sounds like a plan! Thank you for your time Sydney. Is there anything you would like to say to your supporters and those being introduced to you for the first time? Welcome to the Blended family!

I dearly appreciate my fans/followers support, thank you so much! I absolutely love meeting my fans and getting to know them. If you’re a fan, please, come up and say “Hi” if you see me at an event or boppin’ around town, I swear, I don’t bite (too hard, lol). If this is the first time you’re hearing of me, come check me out! I have a wide variety of fans for a reason; girls wanting work-out tips or looking to find the next “it” bikini, all the way to my all-time favorite “creepers,” young and old, and everything in between!

Interview w/ Melissa Flentzeris

Melissa Flentzeris is a Youtube prankster on the rise. The Sydney, Australia native took some time out of her schedule to chat with us.


First things first Melissa, welcome to the Blended Entertainment family. A lot of people(guys) really want to know your age.

Thanks! I’m 25 years old

How is the culture in Sydney, Australia different from the United States?

I think overall we are a little more laid back.

What was the first prank you ever pulled in your life?

My first prank I ever pulled was when I was around 7 years old and I pretended to cut my friends hair with scissors but had a piece of fake hair in my hands already and she thought it was her hair, it was hilarious!

You’ve done some music videos before, would you hope to do some more?

I’m always open to doing music videos.

What separates you as a prankster from other female pranksters?

My willingness to try new things and not play safe.

For anyone like myself who wants to or will be traveling to Australia in the future, is there any advice you can give them? Where to go for the best time? Where to eat? Where to shop?

There are plenty of beautiful places to see and eat in Sydney! I would recommend going to Marquee or ivy or “The Club” night club for a good night out. There are many good places to eat in an area called Surry Hills, and to shop definitely in the city and Paddington.

Do you currently have any favorite pranksters other than yourself of course?

I have many favorite pranksters!

If you could collaborate with someone, whether they’re a prankster or not to create an ultimate prank, who would it be?

It would probably have to be Betty White! Her show is hilarious and I’m sure she could pull of a great prank with me.

As a female prankster, do you feel as if you represent females everywhere?

When you decide to go into the Entertainment world you are choosing to show your self publicly so in a way I try to be a good role model but by being myself.

Where do you hope to be 5 years from now as an entertainer?

I hope to get into film/television.

Thank you for your time Melissa. Any last words for the readers, fans, followers, and those who will be interested in seeing more of you?

I’d like to say to everyone thanks so much for the support and I’ve got many more pranks on the way and keep on supporting me and showing me love!

Interview w/ Mindy Robinson

Mindy Robinson

One look at her IMDB profile and you can see that Mindy Robinson is one of the busiest actresses you’ve probably ever have seen. If you ever think about messing with her, she’ll kick your butt. If she doesn’t want to do the honors, then Expendables 3 and Gym Rescue star, Randy Couture may like to. So fortunately for me, I’m a respectful guy. So hope you enjoy this interview with the indie star.

You grew up in Fall River, I’m from Boston. Do you hate when you tell people you’re from Mass, and they automatically assume Boston? What was life like growing up for you?

I’ve learned to just say “Rhode Island” since my hometown is on the border and that’s closer to my natural accent. If I say “New England” they usually will just ask if I’m a Patriots fan, or just not generally know where it is. I’m proud to be from a blue collar working town though, I’ve carried that work ethic all my life.

How did you get involved in acting?

I was visiting a set for the first time and they asked me to replace an actress they had to fire. I kind of ran with it after that.

What is your favorite type of movie to have a role in? What do you like most about working in that type of genre?

I love comedies. Horror movies are cool because of all the effects…but there’s something super cool about hearing the whole audience laugh at your performance.

Who inspires you as an actress?

Goldie Hawn. She never thought she had to play down her looks to be a comedic actor…she just pulls it off.

You’ve done some topless scenes and have done a lot of roles as the “hot chick”. Was there a point where you ever were uncomfortable with these scenes?

I’m a fairly liberal actress, but I have turned down roles where I didn’t like the context of the nudity. It should be funny or sexy, never demeaning or uncomfortable. It got my foot in a lot of doors, but it’s really only a fraction of what I do.

You’ve been in a ton of projects and seem to have many more that have been filmed or are currently in production. Do you take pride in the fact you have a lot of projects?

The biggest compliment is to be asked back to a production and/or to come recommended by your peers. Anyone can luck out here and there, but you have to legitimately be talented and easy to work with to stay a full time working actor.

What is your take on deciding the types of projects that you will take?

I’m always analyzing the pros and cons of projects on my table. It’s something an actor should always decide on for themselves.

You were bullied growing up. Can you talk about bullying and how it has impacted you? What advice would you give to anyone out there who is experiencing this?

I was heavily bullied for being buck toothed and ugly as a kid. I can’t even complain about it though because it taught me to just not give a f**k what haters had to say about me…they really just hate themselves and you can’t let them drag you down with them.

What was the best experience you’ve had on set? What was the worst?

I’ve done over 100 projects and it’s almost always a blast. Sh*t’s always going to happen. You’ve got to learn to make the best of it or make fun of it, or something lol.

You have a lot of reality tv credits. What do you like about doing reality tv?

Whether it’s real or set up, it’s all improv which I love. Actors are told to stay away from reality TV, but it was a fun way for me to get exposure and to build a fan base. I already had several acting credits before any of the reality shows aired. Being an actor on a reality show is different than a reality star trying to be an actor.

What advice would you give to a young aspiring actor/actress?

Don’t ever listen to advice, not even mine. ;)

Thank you Mindy for your time. Would like to say anything to your fans, to the readers out there that we didn’t touch upon?

As an indie actress, I owe a ton of my success to all the support I’ve gotten through my fans and all the social media outlets. Thank you for all the tweets, and love you guys have shown to this nerdy little actress.

As for Mindy, she is currently filming season 3 of TBS’s King of the Nerds. Casting Couch, Alpha House, The Coed and the Zombie Stoner are available on Netflix now. Live Nude Girls, is the new comedy feature coming out and will be available to watch through Xbox on August 17th. If you want to get in contact with her or just learn more about her, just peep below for her contact.

Interview w/ Kimiko Glenn

If you hadn’t binge-watched Orange Is The New Black yet, then what are you waiting for? Season 2 of the Netflix hit series saw Kimiko Glenn come in as the character, Brook Soso. Blended Entertainment had the privilege of interviewing Kimiko. Enjoy this interview and don’t forget to follow me on Twitter @BlendedEnt. You can always suggest who you’d like to see me interview next.


You talked about portraying these sort of asexual characters. So having to now simulate a scene in which sexual pleasure is being displayed must have been shocking. How did you mentally prep for your scene of simulating sex on screen?

There’s no real way to prepare yourself for something like a sex scene! I went into it very much like, “Oh God. What is this going to be like? Will I be so concerned with the logistics of the “sex” that I will forget to act? Will they make me do it a million times?? Oh God!!” But on the day of shooting it was very much a safe environment — it was a closed set — and Lisa Vinnecour, our executive producer, made it clear that I wasn’t about to do anything I wasn’t comfortable with. It wasn’t so bad!

In terms of preparing for that nude scene in which you are with Natasha Lyonne, how long did the filming process take?

It was very quick. I think no one wanted me to feel uncomfortable, they knew I was a newbie, so it was just a few takes, maybe a few shots and we were done!

What was it like on set filming for season 2? Were things going on in the background as filming was taking place? If you weren’t in a scene for a day, were you still on set?

It was a blast!! We have a great time together, but it is typically pretty focused. I am only called to set if I have a scene to shoot. I’ve never really popped in just for the heck of it. Maybe I will, if I’m ever in the neighborhood.

As far as season 3 is concerned, how far along are you all into the creative process? How is the atmosphere different from when you first came on for season 2?

We are working our butts off to make season 3 amazing! When I got cast in the show, season 1 had just come out and people were really digging it. I knew I was doing a hit series, but after season 2 aired, it is clear that we are part of a phenomenon. I think that is definitely felt on set and we are all so grateful and incredibly HAPPY to be working on such a groundbreaking, exciting, well-written show.

For OITNB, how did you go about getting the role? Did this involve any auditioning? Was the casting call specifically looking for an Asian actress?

I received an appointment for an audition through my agents. It was a relatively quick turnaround. I got the audition late in the day, read a few scenes with Jen Euston the next morning, got the call the following afternoon, and was on set at 6 a.m. the next day! I had never experienced anything quite like it. The breakdown for the role was pretty open at that point. I knew friends of all different ethnicities who went in for it as well.

Knowing that you did spend a little bit of time in my home city of Boston excites me. Did you get any time to enjoy the city? Did you notice any differences between Boston and Phoenix?

I love Boston! I did explore while I was there, but I was mainly preoccupied with school. Boston and Phoenix (my hometown) are wildly different; namely, the weather! Also, I never had to drive in Boston… I always walked or took the T. That is something you could never do in Phoenix. You need a car.

Seeing that you attended The Boston Conservatory, it is safe to say that you sort of always wanted to act. Was there a moment that made you say that you wanted to try out theater? Was acting a way of your parents just wanting to keep you busy?

I always loved performing from when I was a kid. I feel like I was never not performing. It was just something I naturally did and my parents just guided me there. They were always extremely supportive!

People have asked you plenty of times if you talked as much as Brook. With that being said, how would you describe yourself in terms of your personality and character?

I definitely don’t talk as much as Brook!! I am pretty shy at heart and it takes me a while to get to know someone to where I can talk a lot. That being said, I understand Brook in a lot of ways. I am very into natural health and wellness, and some would say I have hippie qualities. But I would not be as extreme as to live in a tree for extended periods of time.

We know that Brook is in prison because of some form of political protest. Do you ever come up with ideas in your head with what she was protesting and how she went about it? She was willing to starve herself so it seems she could definitely go to an extreme.

I used to make up ideas in my head about what she might have done or what happened with Meadow, but as I got the scripts every other week, I realized it was completely futile. The beauty of television is that information is revealed episode to episode, and the actor learns kind of with the audience in a way. The writers are incredible, they have a grand plan, and I grew to trust that.

Has your goals as an actress changed since joining the cast of OITNB, especially after seeing how highly regarded your character and this series is?

Well, thank you!! Nothing really has changed in regard to my goals. I’ve always, always, always wanted to be on Broadway. That is an absolute dream of mine. I started out on stage as a singer, and it has transitioned over the years to be more concentrated in acting. I never thought I would be in movies or television. It never really crossed my mind until I moved to NYC about 4 years ago! So I guess, if anything, I now see myself doing more on-camera work.

Is there a particular character(s) who you would want Brook to develop a strong bond with? Share more scenes with? Brook needs a partner in crime.

I think Brook needs to have more scenes with Yoga Jones! I am close with Connie off-set and I think it would only make sense for Brook to be bestie’s with a yogi!

Thank you Kimiko for this interview. Is there anything you would like to say to your fans and our readers? How can fans and readers find and interact with you?

Thank you so so so much for all your support and love!! It is because of YOU that we are able to do what we love and I can’t be more thankful! Please follow me on twitter @KimikoGlenn and instagram @ohlittleasianone! I love you all!!!

Degrassi 13C Finale Interview #4

Just when you thought it was over. I have one more Degrassi interview left for all of you. I couldn’t let you all celebrate this spring finale tonight without interviewing another individual who seems to be at a crossroads between two guys. Olivia Scriven is Maya Matlin, one of the handful of Sophomores who will play a huge role tonight’s episode.


Jr: Wow where do I begin with Maya. She has been through so much and is only a sophomore. What have you seen in her that has changed from when we first met her back in season 11?

Olivia: Maya has not only gone through the necessary rites of passage that a 13 or 14 year old usually goes through, but she also dealt with issues (such as Cam’s death) that are really going to take a toll on the rest of her life. I think that since freshman year, she has looked at everything way more seriously, and values all her relationships with others. She is much stronger now and I think has way more self-esteem, but she thinks about everything too much, and over analyzes situations. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but I don’t think she will ever completely return to that innocent little girl we saw at the beginning.

Jr: Who do you ship Maya with?

Olivia: I don’t know if this is allowed… but I ship Maya with Maya! I think that since the beginning of high school, her decisions have been largely impacted on by the boys surrounding her life, and those decisions haven’t always turned out so well. I think right now, Maya should focus on her individuality before jumping into another relationship.

Jr: What is a story-line you want to see Maya go through?

Olivia: I’d love to see Maya and Grace try to run away or something, and end up like, living in a tent somewhere. That’d be really awesome and weird. It would be a really fun acting duet too, with only two people in a really secluded area.

Sparks Will Fly pt 2 (Premiers Tonight, at 9:00pm ET)

Fireworks begin at Wild Wild West Night when Clare makes her decision known with regards to Drew and Eli. Zoë struggles to stand up for herself. Miles and Zig face off in a showdown for Maya’s heart.

New episodes of Degrassi continue this summer with the remainder of season13.
