Jamie Johnston Degrassi METH Addiction


Jamie Johnston‘s character Peter Stone will battle Meth addiction on the two-episode Degrassi season premiere called ‘Just Can’t Get Enough‘ on Sunday, Oct. 4 at 7 PM ET, according to CTV.ca.

In ‘Degrassi Goes Hollywood,‘ Peter’s life was looking good: His band Stüdz was destined for fame, dating the hottest girl in school and leaving his problems behind. But as Peter realizes he can’t seem to fit into the high-fashion world Mia (Nina Dobrev) inhabits, an unlikely guest offers him a chance to escape.

Jamie said he studied drug addiction to prepare for the part: ‘Thankfully there are shows like ‘Intervention’ and ‘Dr. Phil,’ where you can see what people are thinking when they go through experiences like that. I even traveled downtown to the more sketchy areas of Toronto to see how people move and how they act when they are on drugs. I just took every piece of information I could get, mixed it all together, put it in the oven, took it out, and now I have Peter on meth.’

Jamie hopes fan can learn from his portrayal: ‘I hope that when people see how bad even just a little bit of meth can mess up your life, that people will know to just not do it. There’s been a lot of stuff going around recently about the horrors of meth, the before and after pictures of their faces.. its one of the worst things you can put in your body.’

    I hate meth Its the worst drug you can possibley get on. But I hope they don’t over do it. Ive seen people on it and have seen people addited vary close to me. I JUST HOPE they show the relity of it. It messes with your personality more then it dose your body.
