Dalmar Abuzeid: The Anne with an E actor on being Avonlea's first blac

If you grew up reading the Anne of Green Gables books, you probably remember characters such as Gilbert Blythe, Anne's great love, or Diana Barry, her beloved best friend. But there's one character you've definitely never heard of: Sebastian "Bash" Lecroix. He's played by actor Dalmar Abuzeid, and was created specifically for the new season of Anne with an E. He's also the first black character to appear on the show. Abuzeid talks to us about making TV history, as well as how he got his big break on Degrassi alongside Drake.
