On the reboot at HBO: “I haven’t heard a ton about it. I saw it on Instagram. I mean, I’m always looking for Degrassi to be more risky, more like Euphoria, I guess. But Degrassi has its spot and it plays to that crowd. So I think Euphoria will be Euphoria, but in my mind I’m like, ‘I want the competition. Come on. Come on, Linda Schuyler, Degrassi, let’s take them down. Let’s show them some t-tties.”

On if she’s approached to play Manny again: “I will always think about anything if there’s a lot of money to be made, I can be bought. So there’s a price, but I just don’t know. I feel like, what… was she going to come back as a drama teacher? Maybe. She had to come back, be a drunk drama teacher. I feel like it would be more fun to make a series about the actual lives of the real cast.”

On the reception to the show: “It does feel like a different lifetime, but I feel like it’s still such a huge part of my life. There’s always a reboot. I know that there is this now, but not too long ago, there was another wave when it got debuted on Netflix. I’m excited to see what the new show’s going to be like. I really, really want to challenge Euphoria.”

She also opened up about being bullied along with another co-star.
