100 Photos of Shenae Grimes

Shenae Grimes played Darcy Edwards on Degrassi from from 2004 to 2008. Darcy was a Christian cheerleader with hair extensions that doubled her body weight. Darcy first appeared at the cheerleaders’ carwash. Highlights of her tenure  include breaking Paige’s leg,  posting sexy photos on the web, a cat fight with Manny, getting raped and then going crazy for Mr. Simpson.  She was even bestowed the honor of being Spinner’s girlfriend for awhile.

In season 8, Darcy suddenly left for Africa, never to return. The reason was that Grimes was scooped up by the CW for their 90210 spinoff, where she currently plays the character Annie Wilson.  It didn’t surprise me when she left Degrassi for bigger things (the CW would only be a big thing in comparison to TeenNick) because was the stand out actress among the very large cast. What did surprise me is that since Aaron Spelling made the original Beverly Hills, 90210 after he couldn’t get the rights to Degrassi Junior High, it means Grimes jumped from a spin-off of Degrassi to a spin-off a show that was inspired by Degrassi and somehow that didn’t rip a hole in the time-space continuum.

Fun facts:

1.) Her first on screen role was a teenage Shania Twain in an unauthorized CBC biopic. According to the Wikipedia entry:

The film was not authorized by Twain and made without her participation. The film ends with a disclaimer stating so. Because of Twain’s lack of participation, the producers were not allowed to use any of her songs, and thus relied on early bootlegs of Twain singing public domain songs.

I get the CBC in Michigan, so this does not surprise me. If the CBC were a country, it would be Guatemala.

2.) She was briefly kidnapped when she was 4-years-old. So she was probably even pretty hot back then if she was kidnap worthy.

3.) This be her Twitter account.

Here are 100 pictures of her.
