How To Be Indie

Okay, I know the title of this post sounds racist, but don't take me to court yet.  That's the name of Melinda Shankar's new television show.  Don't freak out, she's not abandoning Degrassi, but she is starring as Indie in the new show "How to Be Indie."  Along side costars Sarena Parmar, Dylan Everett, and Marline Yan (never heard of them, but maybe you have, so I mentioned it), she stars as a young Indian-Canadian girl trying to balance her Indian heritage with her new Canadian customs in Heroic Film Company's latest tween comedy.  Supposedly 13, Indie is dealing with the pressures of growing up carrying out Indian customs while trying to maintain a regular Canadian childhood.  Although Melinda Shankar is most definitely NOT 13, she actually does an adequate job of appearing like one (see below).

The first season was filmed in 2008 and it was supposed to air in the summer of 2009, but it seems to have been delayed.  Tune in to YTV (if you have it) and check out Melinda!

Chao for now!
