Shenae Grimes Bio

Birthdate: October 24, 1989
Birthplace: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

You know her best as Annie Wilson in 90210, but there’s a lot more to learn about this rising star. Check out Shenae Grimes on Kidzworld!


Shenae got her start acting in commercials but quickly scored a recurring role as Arden Allcott on the Disney Channel series, Naturally, Sadie. Shenae’s big break came in 2006 with a small role on the Canadian hit show, Degrassi: The Next Generation. Shenae impressed the crew and her role was soon expanded so that her character, Darcy Edwards, became a lead in the series.


Beverly Hills Babe

Since Degrassi, Shenae’s landed a career-defining role as Annie Wilson in the CW remake of 90210. Shenae says Annie is “the most centered person at West Beverly. Everyone gives her grief, but she ends up bringing them all down to earth.” As for the show itself, Shaenae says she signed on for the remake because it’s “not as amazingly cheesy as the old one.” She says the new 90210 is “so real” with issues that “hit harder and closer to home.”


Shenae’s character, Annie, is based on Brenda Walsh from the original 90210. Shenae sees a lot of similaries between the two. Both are the “new girl in school trying to fit in with the high-rollers” and both have “an interest in musical theater.” “She seems to have a pretty sophisticated sense of right from wrong,” Shenae says.


Did You Know?

  • Shenae only got the role as Annie Wilson on 90210 because Hilary Duff turned it down!"
  • She won a Canadian Gemini Award for “Best Performance in a Youth Series” in 2007 for her role as Darcy in Degrassi: The Next Generation.
  • Shenae has a tattoo that says “Myself and I” on her right rib.
  • She never thought she’d be an actor until an agent approached her after a dance recital. Shenae always thought she’d be a dancer, singer or fashion designer.

    Hi there! I am Rose, (If you have somehow not seen me around so far) an avid writer and roleplayer here on KW. I've recently realized that I love critique. It's one of my favorite things to do and receive. And not so recently, I realized there's a lot of OCs that need improvement out there.  Like a lot. It's kind of scary. So I've decided to start reviewing these OCs, both the good and the bad. But as always, I have some standards.  I will review OCS from these fandoms: Dr. Who Undertale Danganronpa RWBY  Soul Eater Warrior Cats Hunger Games Divergent Harry Potter Vocaloid Black Butler MLP (Yes I am a bit of a closet brony shh don't tell anyone) Ava's Demon (Although I doubt anyone knows what this is) Percy Jackson Adventure Time Steven Universe Gravity Falls 99% of Disney Attack On Titan Touhou Avatar (The four elements and stuff not the weird blue people.) Pokemans Original Works Ask me if I review anything that isnt on this list. But before people start freaking out, I do not review LOTR, Supernatural, Narnia, or Sherlock.  Please put your character in an RP style form including name, personality, backstory, and any fandom specific info. If your character is in one of the fandoms listed go ahead and post right away. I will respond ASAP with how you can improve your OC and a general rating. Be prepared for criticism. Well, go ahead and start posting your OCs!
