ORANGE COUNTY, CA—For many viewers both here in the U.S. and our hockey-loving neighbor to the north (Canada), actor Jake Epstein—currently starring in the musical SPRING AWAKENING—literally grew up in front of our eyes. In the hit teen Canadian-set drama Degrassi: The Next Generation (which airs in the U.S. on TeenNick), Epstein played Craig Manning, a sweet, affable young man that audiences first meet under strange and ultimately sad circumstances during the start of the show's second season. The meaty role gave Epstein the opportunity for some heavy, very intense acting work, thanks to his character's many interesting storylines (which include fronting a garage band, getting physically abused by a parent, impregnating a girlfriend, being diagnosed as Bipolar, and later even developing a cocaine habit). He went on to play Craig consistently for at least four seasons, returning occasionally in the past few years for guest appearances to reprise the role.
