Sindy: I just wanted to congratulate you on the new album coming out!
Cassie: Thank you very much.

Sindy: How was the recording process - was it what you expected?
Cassie: Yeah, it was actually a lot more fun than I expected. The first time around when I was doing a demo, I didn't have the same producer that I have now and I didn't have a very good connection with him, and he was also a co-writer. But the co-writer and producer I'm with now were really creatively in tune so it's a lot easier than it was.

Sindy: Are you going to be touring once the CD comes out?
Cassie: I think so. But probably during the summer cuz we have to get sponsors and stuff and it's really short notice.

Sindy: So will you be touring in North America?
Cassie: North America I think first. Cuz my CD is only sold in North America. But you can buy it online in the US or wherever you are.

Sindy: What do you enjoy more - acting or singing?
Cassie: Uhhh, actually I enjoy both equally. I don't think I could choose.

Sindy: Who are your musical influences? What kind of music are you listening to now?
Cassie: A lot of punk rock. I listen to various stuff just cuz my friends now listen to a lot of different bands. I listen to a lot of underground stuff like jungle music.

Sindy: If you had the opportunity to collaborate with someone musically, who would that be?
Cassie: Brodie Dalle from The Distillers. He's so hot!

Sindy: You've been working on Degrassi for a while now and you guys deal with some pretty intense situations on the show sometimes. Are you ever uncomfortable with any of the material you cover?
Cassie: No. There's always that feeling, like when I did the slutty episode when Manny turned bad, I was kind of like, 'Oh, what are my friends going to say about this?' Cuz when I'm in the mall or walking down the street, there are the occassional times when I get recognized. And you kind of worry about what people are saying about you. But, other than that, it's good.

    Why should they split up? They're an awesome couple. They even have a kid together. I think people should let them be... If they love each other they should be together. It's none of our business. We wouldn't want someone in our personal life, deciding things for us.
