JustJaredJr.com: Tell us about your character! She sounds very different than Imogen.

Cristine Prosperi: She is very different from Imogen. Mikayla is a fun, loving, girlie girl who becomes great friends with Dylan. They are partners in crime and go through tons of adventures throughout the season. Appearance wise, Imogen is quirky and zany while Mikayla is more fashionable and girlie. Another difference – Mikayla likes boys while Imogen was into the ladies.

Degrassi's Justin Kelly & Cristine Prosperi Lead Cast of TeenNick's New Show, 'Open Heart'

Degrassi's Justin Kelly & Cristine Prosperi Lead Cast of TeenNick's New Show, 'Open Heart'

Meet the cast of TeenNick’s new series, Open Heart!

The new show centers on 16-year-old Dylan Blake (Karis Cameron), who falls in with the wrong crowd, gets arrested, and earns court-ordered community service volunteering at Open Heart Memorial, the hospital where her mother and sister are doctors and where her grandparents are board members and benefactors. 

All Dylan has to do is follow the rules. The hospital is the last place her father was seen alive and while most people think it’s a straightforward case of abandonment, Dylan doesn’t believe that and sets out to prove something bad happened to her father. Putting her old delinquent skills back into service, Dylan and her new friends–the bright and gossipy Mikayla (Cristine Prosperi) and the handsome charmer Wes (Justin Kelly)—start looking into her dad’s disappearance, unearthing a trail of clues that lead them to some very unexpected places.
