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.

Celebrating Degrassi: Chelsea Clark

Season 2 of Degrassi: Next Class premiered on Netflix just a few weeks ago. In honor of my love for the iconic hit Canadian series, I decided to reach out to some of the cast. The first cast member is Chelsea Clark. She plays the lovely and confident yet manipulative Esme Song. Check out our little chat.

So you just finished up high school this year and that included the big prom. How was prom? 

Prom was super great! It was a nice intimate venue and everyone really got together and looked great as our one last hurrah.

Esme was such a negative influence on Miles but a really interesting character. What should we expect from Esme moving forward?

We can expect to see sides of her that are really different than the first two seasons. Her interactions with the other characters will be most interesting.

Question from Twitter user @DegrassiFeels: If you could write an episode about your character, what would you make your character do?

I would want to write a scene of her interacting with her family or no family we don’t know! Also crazy stunts would be AWESOME (Scuba diving, bungee jumping, the whole shebang.

If you could swap places with any of the characters that attend Degrassi, who would you swap with?

I’d swap with any of the Hollingsworth family members. They’re great characters AND get a pool!

If you could have a super power what would it be?

Breathe underwater

What’s one of your biggest/weirdest fears?

I’m terrified of rodents

What would be a good theme song for your life?

I don’t care if it doesn’t fit but I’d love for it to be the 6teen theme song
