'Degrassi: Next Class' Actress Ana Golja Bids Farewell to the Show on Instagram

Season 4 of Degrassi: Next Class saw a number of the lead characters graduating, and one of the hardest to say goodbye to will be Zoe Rivas (played by Ana Golja), the ambitious, bold student who struggled with her sexuality for much of the series.

Actress Ana, 21, took to Instagram yesterday to say goodbye to the character she has become so attached to, and to thank fans for believing in her.

“What an honor and whirlwind it was to play Zoe Rivas in Degrassi and Degrassi Next Class,” she writes, “I’m so deeply saddened to be saying goodbye to one of my favourite characters and my 2nd family. However, what will live on in my heart forever, is the impact Zoe (and the show) made on the lives of many people around the world (including my own).”

She goes on to thank both the cast members, the crew, and her fans.

“I’m so incredibly grateful to the entire creative and executive team for allowing me to portray Zoe,” she continues, “You truly challenged me as an actress and I am eternally thankful. I also want to thank my wonderful cast mates for making my job so ridiculously easy and fun. Can’t wait to see what you all do next! Lastly, I would like to thank our INCREDIBLE fans for watching and supporting us, every step of the way. Without you, there would be no Degrassi. As a tribute to Zoe, ‘Au Revoir, B!****s!’ ;)”

In her Instagram caption she continues: “Thank you to the whole @degrassi nation. It’s been an incredible 6 seasons. ?? Excited for what this new chapter of my career has in store…”

*sniffs* We’re not crying. If you haven’t seen the new season yet, watch the trailer here.
