You’re going to see a lot more of Dalmar Abuzeid on television this fall. And that’s not a bad thing.

The 27-year-old Toronto actor is known for playing the precocious Danny Van Zandt on six seasons of the Canadian series Degrassi: The Next Generation.

But this season he has roles in three major Toronto-shot series, including Anne With an E from CBC and Netflix, CBC’s comedy Crawford and Audience Network’s thriller Condor. And don’t forget a cameo in Drake’s Degrassi blockbuster reunion music video for “I’m Upset.”

Abuzeid is not a household name, but he is having something of a breakout moment, fuelled by the fact that according to the CBC he is the first Black character to appear on the critically acclaimed series, based on the 1908 classic Anne of Green Gables books by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
