Trivia and Quotes

  • The queen bee.

    I love Paige because she brings so much to the show. She started out as this rude and popular girl that always seemed to not mind hurting people to get what she wanted. As her character went through issues (getting raped, falling in love, experimenting with Alex) she became a much mroe real person and a tad bit more sympathetic towards others. She still held her alpha girl status, but she was a lot less rude and much more understanding than she used to be. Paige is sassy, smart, and sure to bring dramam to whatever episode she's in, and thats what makes her such a classic.moreless
  • One of the best actresses IMO and she deserves more publicity and some lead roles.

    I absolutely love Lauren. I fell in love with her character on Degrassi and absolutely loved her as Alicia on The Best Years as well. She just has such a way of owning each character she plays. She does a great job of tackling tough storylines and always seems to show the inner-growth of her character. I hope to see more roles for her in the future. I'd love to see her in a horror or action movie. Personally I'm tired of the same old "it girls" in Hollywood. I also agree that Ashley and Brenda are good comedic actresses, but so far I have not seen them expand their talents to other types of roles. IMO Lauren has proven that she can do it all.moreless
