Soma Bhatia portrays Goldi Nahir on Degrassi. Check out our chat with her as we continue to celebrate Degrassi.
You recently just turned 18 so hope you had an amazing 18th birthday! How did you celebrate your birthday?
I did have an amazing birthday! My friend from acting class and I have close birthdays so we celebrated together. We invited all the Degrassi cast and all our acting class friends for sushi.
What similarities if any do you have with Goldi?
We both are very passionate people. Goldi sets a goal in her mind and often achieves it. I’m very much a go-getter like her.
What’s it like being a part of such a legendary franchise?
It’s a dream come true for me because I grew up watching this show, and so did my mom! Degrassi was a part of my childhood and its special knowing that can help carry this legacy.
If you could have a super power what would it be?
To be able to eat without getting full or being unhealthy and to make junk food healthy. I just love food!
What’s your biggest fear?
My biggest fear is losing people I love.
What would be a good theme song for your life?
The song “Ride” by Lana Del Rey. Well, any Lana song, I’m a huge fan.
What can we expect from the upcoming new episodes?
A lot more on self discovery. That’s what high school is all about. Finding your true self and being happy with it.
