Life imitates art for Degrassi actor

Degrassi: Next Generation actor Adamo Ruggiero, who plays gay teen Marco, has publicly commented on his own sexuality, coming out as gay.

“It was interesting, I was growing up at the exact same time as my character was growing up, and he was questioning things that I was questioning, and I was just a kid,” says Ruggiero.

“It was a little overwhelming in the sense that the things I was feeling were being broadcast to the world, and in a way kind of made me revert back almost because I didn’t know how to confront it myself.”

“Maybe it’s life imitating art, or maybe that’s what Degrassi intended to do. I feel like I’m living proof of what the show wanted to accomplish.”
