Degrassi Character Of The Day #5

Welcome to the fifth installment of  Degrassi character of the day ( DCOTD) where a different character will be the main focus daily. When a character is focused on, it is most appreciated that everyone who likes and even dislikes this character should engage in discussion. Remember that there could but not always be guaranteed an assortment of trivia, games, quotes, polls, scenarios, and or other things in relation to the Degrassi character as apart of this segment. We love these characters so much over time but are they really getting the stories we would want them to have? Our next character of focus is Adam whom is portrayed by actress Jordan Todosey.

Adam Torres not only has fame because of the fact that he is the step-brother of Degrassi’s little playboy Drew Torres. Adam not only has fame because he is funny, interesting, caring, engaging, and just a pleasure to view on screen. Adam Torres is most likely known for being the first Transgendered student in Degrassi history. Adam is who he really is but Gracie is the female that his mom had wished she had been. Currently that idea of Gracie has been shot down by not just Adam, but the rest of the family as well. Adam went through some suffering at the hands of Bianca, Fitz, and others because he was known as being “different”. I will admit that as his eps were realy good, I am a little disappointed if  he doesnt have to struggle more throughout the show because of it. I want to really see the conenction between Adam and Transgenderism in terms of seeing his grandmother more, and also just seeing how it affects his life. I love Adam and how the wonderful actress portrays him but I want to see more of the topic covered. I want Degrassi to go there to the fullest extent. I want to see the boldness in Adam and his stories like we saw with Fitz that one time ( also check pic above for boldness). How do you guys feel?

  1. yes, they definitely need to cover more on trans issues.
    basically all they’ve done so far is say ‘transsexuals exist’ and that’s a great thing to acknowledge and to finally introduce a trans character to the tv world and to many young fans, but there is A LOT that they can cover with Adam and it would be a shame and wasted potential if they don’t.
