Happy Birthday to Shenae Grimes who turns 23 today!
The actress Tweeted: “Thanks for all the birthday wishes guys! It’s not even here yet in LA and already so much love! Big love back atcha!!! Xx”
Grimes rose to fame after playing Darcy Edwards in the Canadian TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Now she’s playing Annie in CW’s 90210.
In an interview with The Insider – Grimes shares that she’s partnered with Project Runway alum Chris March and Mattel’s Monster High to create the most ghoulish get-up imaginable.
She explains, “I think Monster High is such a cool line of dolls and stories. It’s a departure from that pretty in pink world I was surrounded with growing up. I am definitely more of a tomboy, but also a witchy little goth on the inside and this is so much more my speed than any of that girly-girl stuff.
“It’s very fashion forward, incredibly glamorous and quirkier than what we’re used to seeing in the younger market. All these characters, and the stories they tell, really accentuate embracing your flaws and I think that’s such an important message to give to young girls in high school. You don’t have to fit in! Embrace your individuality! I think a lot of the imagery projected out to girls from a young age is about being this perfect ideal and Monster High washes that away and says be your own glamorous self.”
