Cassie: (On her Degrassi character, Manny Santos) I would be great friends with her in real life. Yeah, she does look like a boyfriend thief, but in the end, she's just Manny, and she's always treated her friends with respect. The boyfriend thief thing is understandable -- just as long as it's not my boyfriend!
Cassie: I definitely want to act and I want to sing. If those two fall through, I want to become a writer, probably, like a songwriter for other people, or a novel writer. I write a lot, and I read a lot. I like reading fiction. Right now, my favorite author is probably Anne Rice. I'm just in the middle of one of her vampire books. I like mythology, anything historical.
Cassie: It doesn't matter where this gets, just so long as I can keep writing and singing.
Cassie: Everyday is embarrassing for me.
