Goldi Nahir/Soma Bhatia #1: With or without your vote, she's ready to change the world.

Goldi Nahir/Soma Bhatia Appreciation #1



I can…: Change the world

I can’t…: Sit back and do nothing

QOTD: “Live as if you were to die tomorrow; learn as if you were to live forever.”
#Dailythought: #feminist



Goldi Nahir is an activist and feminist who, while putting her hijab on every morning, considers ways in which she can improve Degrassi.
Goldi is high achieving and out to win the student council presidency.
She’s passionate yet somewhat reserved, leading others to believe that she’s standoffish, when in reality she’s just being respectful of others and her own beliefs.

Add me. I'm not quite sure what to expect with her and I'm afraid to have high hopes knowing this show, but the sneak peek got me excited. Goldi certainly sounds unique.

Thanks for starting the thread. It looks great! And you can add me.

In the CP24Breakfast interview with the cast they mentioned feminism being a major theme this season. I'm guessing Goldi kicks that off. Hopefully she enters a strong character and we see plenty of her.

See...if I actually spent the five minutes to watch that thing I'd know that.

I agree about her starting out as a strong character. I hope that happens. She's part of the newest Degrassi siblings, just one of the many interesting dynamics with her that I'm looking forward to see playing out.

She seems really well spoken. Kinda an inspirational tweet/video.

For those who've seen the episodes, what type of impression is Goldi making so far?




Soma and Ana did a radio interview with the CBC. Follow the link to listen.

As I wait for Netflix I took a little trip through Soma's Instagram and reaffirmed something that at the risk of sounding like a perv, you can't help but notice- she's stunningly beautiful, isn't she?

You don't have to try to convince me. Smart and beautiful...TPTB did some great casting with her.

Well, there's other stuff, of course, besides beauty to consider in casting a role. But, her looks didn't hurt, that is for sure.

I wonder if Goldi made a connection with (platonic or otherwise) with any of the other characters during these ten episodes. I guess we're found out soon. Very soon.

what is your favorite Degrassi ship EVER?
@khendlejade ouuu, I absolutely ADORED Zane and Riley

what character would you have loved to play beside yours? #askdegrassi
@LEXATRIAS I would have loved to play a female Eli

what do you like & dislike about Goldi? #AskDegrassi
@ohhayjenn I like how she's really passionate about everything she does, but I also think that can be her downfall #AskDegrassi

who is your best friend on set? #AskDegrassi
@ohhayjenn well I spent a lot of time filming with Olivia. We would play guitar and sing Lana Del Rey at lunch #AskDegrassi

What was your first day of set like? #askdegrassi
@TommosHollings I was so nervous because I had wanted to be on the show for 2 years. It was hard to believe my dream came true #AskDegrassi

Who is your favorite character over the years? #AskDegrassi
@brainbospsp Eli, Zane and Anya

how much do you relate to goldi?? #askdegrassi
@icehcund a lot tbh. I was always the kid who would stand up for what's right even when people thought I went overboard #AskDegrassi

are you a feminist like Goldi? #askdegrassi
@EclareDrianca I never thought I was one until I played the role of Goldi and understood what feminism really is #AskDegrassi

She answered a lot of questions. Great to get to know you Soma! Her Q&A was on the 13th if you want to go into her replies and skim to see if one catches your eye.

Well, in the first episode I thought she was the only good choice for school president but later I was reliefed that she didn´t get the post (not that Tristan and Miles really were a good choice for that post either).
But I´m interested in where she´s coming from with her over the top feminism. I already shook my head at the bathrooms, but taking on the gamer club with the arguments she had, was ridiculous. But not unrealistic because I already experienced feminism as over the top.
So I hope we get to see her story behind it. And maybe a journey (with the help of Maya?) to the realization that she should take on the really important matters and not unnecessary campaigns that IMO are not even about equality anymore but using feminism as a tool to get the girls what they want.

I like seeing an activist, but I do agree that for the development of her character it will be important for her to take on causes that don't (and shouldn't) go her way.

Oh and I would like to know why Hunter and his Newbies went after Maya so vehemently as opposed to really doing nothing to Goldi? Well, other than Maya's status as a character on the show compared to the status of Goldi which may have been the only determining factor in the writers and producers minds.
