Drake has “Degrassi” fans smiling with the big cast reunion he did for his new “I’m Upset” music video. But one actor is actually upset he wasn’t invited to the special occasion.
Daniel Clark, who played Sean Cameron on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” from 2001-2008, says he was surprised that he wasn’t part of Drake‘s Degrassi high school reunion music video for his new single.
“No one ever reached out to me about this,” Clark told Page Six on Thursday morning. “I have no idea even when it was filmed. I woke up this morning and watched the music video and was like, ‘What the hell is going on?’”
Clark says the last time he saw Drake was a couple years ago and he sees some of the other cast members every now and then, but it would have been nice to reunite with everyone at the shoot.
“It sucks because it would have been great to see everybody,” he said. “The best part is the fans are getting what they want and that’s most important and everyone looks so happy, so that’s kind of the silver lining there. It looked like everyone was having a great time, but for me, it was kind of sad too, because we were all really like family.”
Clark wasn’t the only former Degrassi Community School student who didn’t make it to the reunion. Ryan Cooley and Mike Lobel were also nowhere to be seen. Cooley played J.T. Yorke for the first six seasons of “Degrassi: The Next Generation.” His character was stabbed to death outside his ex-girlfriend’s birthday party.
Drake acknowledged his absence on Wednesday night after being asked why J.T. was missing, the rapper responded, “He thought it was a scam.” Mike Lobel, who played Sean’s friend Jay Hogart for seven seasons tweeted on Wednesday, “I’m a little upset.”
When asked for a comment, he says it was a production oversight.
“Yeah I honestly don’t have much to say on it, I wasn’t invited to the shoot. I love Aubrey and think he’s a great guy, everyone looked great in the video and I wish I could have been there to hang out with the crew.”
