Spotlight On: DECLAN

Hope all of you lovely readers have noticed one of the newer additions to our fine blog, the poll!  Every week, JJ & I start a new one, and this one was my idea.  Someone chose choice D (choice 4?), "Who the fish is Declan Coyne??"  One, if you don't know, then why are you reading a Degrassi blog?  Ha ha.  Just kidding.  You all know verrrrrrrry well that we appreciate and heart all our readers/followers/random-ers who stumble upon our site by accident.

Anyway, since someone asked, I figured it might be a Frosted Flakes greaaat idea to do a 'Spotlight On:' (especially since we haven't done one in a while).

Declan Coyne is one of the newer students at DCS.  He joined during the second semester.  Fiona (who is 'dating' Riley) is his sister, and they are apparently insanely close.  I'm so jealous.

Declan is basically a notorious jerk thus far.  He's good at destroying lives, breaking hearts, and taking names.  He's destroyed Peter's life, or at least deprived him of his band and the accompanying rock star fantasies (can you say karma?).  He's also basically begging Jane to cheat with him and she obliged (a bit too easily, but whatever, I love Jane so I'm blaming him).

He is played by Landon Liboiron, whose last name I am not even going to try to sound out.  Li-boy-ron?  Comment on this post if you know.  I was re-reading the second book in the Clique series (fantabulous books, I highly recommend them), and the party planner was named Landon.  But then again, maybe 'Landon' is on the list of boy & girl names, like Ryan or Jordan.

Landon Liboiron... Wait.  I just searched him on Google (great site, I also highly recommend it), and his YouTube came up.  I'm going to subscribe and attempt at friending him (though I sincerely doubt he will oblige, but maybe he's heard of our blog!). 

"I have always said, it's one thing to act and tell a story, but it's another thing to perform someone's actual life story." ~Landon Liboiron

Wow... that was deep.  Landon is from Jenner, Alberta (which is in Canada).  His parents are Lorraine Mack Liboiron and Marcel Liboiron, and he has two older brothers, Lance and Blake.  His brothers appear as extras in the Hallmark Film "Crossroads: A Story of Forgiveness", which was a 2007 film that starred Dean Cain, Peri Gilpin, Shiloh Fernandez, Julie Warner, Chelah Horsdal, Ryan Kennedy, and of course, Landon Liboiron.  Aww, and if you go to IMDb, their names aren't even listed (but Landon's is!).

His middle name is Ryan (boy & girl list! [see above]).  Apparently he is 5' 9½", which means he is like, four inches taller than me.  And he's a senior in high school (that means 12th grade) at St. Joseph's Collegiate in Brooks, Alberta. 

Landon has won two AMPIA (Alberta Motion Picture Industries Association) Awards, one for "Best Performance By An Alberta Actor" for Wild Roses (a Canadian television drama series on CBC Television) and the other for "Best Performance by an Alberta Actor" for Mayerthorpe (another Canadian TV drama).

So... yeah.  There you go, anonymous poll-taker.  Do something crazy :) Ccciiiaaaooo for now!
