Little Miss Sunshine (Becky Baker/Sarah Fisher) #1: She will save our soul- and damn it, we're going to like it!

Yep, this is preemptive strike for a character that I suspect will not get the best reaction from many in the Degrassi fan base. She'll get some support here.

Discuss all things Becky and Sarah here, and in the mean time, a few things of note....




Becky is bright, bubbly and enthusiastic. Raised a conservative Christian, Becky always puts family first. She loves musical theatre, and singing in the church choir. She knows not everyone will agree with her traditional values, but that doesn't mean she's afraid to stand up for her beliefs.

Sarah Fisher joins Degrassi in its twelfth season as the religious good-girl, Becky Baker. As an Actress, Dancer, and Singer, Sarah has performed in musical productions of Wicked, Mamma Mia and Grease. When she isn't acting, Sarah also models with Elite International Models.

Sarah sings...




And she has a website with a section on Degrassi, in which she posted:

We’ve had a blast filming and we’re so excited for all of you to see season twelve!! The scripts are crazy, just when you think you’ve got it figured out things change and you can’t believe what just happened. It is going to be a crazy time at Degrassi! Becky is a handful!

The people at Degrassi are the best!! The staff is wonderful and the cast members are just the greatest. I love getting up for work every day. Even the 6:30 am calls are fine. This is so much fun, what a great place to work!!

This August a bunch of us are going to the Busua region of Ghana as volunteers to build a school house. It is a great opportunity to give something back. When you see what the kids in that region call a school you would not believe it. I’ll post some pictures when I get back. Hoping to meet lots of people and make new friends.

Get ready, season twelve starts July 16th!!

You know how we were talking in PM about fears of the fan reaction and I mentioned that I wonder if the writers intend for her to be a representation of that Florida Family Association? And where is Becky from? Florida. I don't know if there is anything to read into that or not. I get this feeling that Becky is going to learn to be more tolerant towards those with different beliefs. Is this a lesson for the FFAIL group?

You don't even know how close I am to making an icon out of the screencap below and defending Becky's every action for the rest of the season no matter what she does. I am that determined not to let Degrassi manipulate me into hating her.



Due to my extreme laziness I am going to c&p what I wrote in the episode discussion post.

Based on our first impression of her (above) and the character description, it seems that Degrassi's goal is to create a caricature, not a character. My understanding is that she's supposed to be an ultra-conservative close-minded Christian and therefore (I assume) pisses everyone off. She enters the Degrassi universe with a high-pitched squeal of a greeting and is such a ditz that she needs someone to show her to class. I am very wary of whether or not she'll be humanized or if she's just a device to cause drama. She seemed like a very caring person at the party, yet I was baffled by the reaction of Adam and the others when she wanted to -- GASP!!! -- donate the uniforms to charity. Oh my god, Becky, you are such a bitch, wanting to donate clothes to the less fortunate. Or at least Adam et al seem to think so. What exactly is the message here? I'm still assuming Becky will turn out to be a stereotypical crazy Christian, which is really frustrating, because Degrassi used to avoid stereotypes. Plus, they already did the "closeminded Christian redeems herself eventually" storyline with Darcy (is this episode meant to be an homage to Darcy's great moments?!) and probably should have gone this route with Clare, too, but it wasn't convenient to her love life, so that fell by the wayside. Nonetheless, I'm determined to like Becky because I feel like the show wants me to hate her. I refuse to believe that anyone is that one-dimensional.

Since Degrassi wants me to hate her so much I'm probably going to end up liking Becky, or at least try to understand whatever she does from her point of view. I don't mindlessly hate most characters.

I am completely on board with let's love Becky because Degrassi wants us to hate her so much. This whole stereotype is silly.

Also team donate clothes, not burn them!

I already love Becky. She's so over the top it's perfect.

And Sarah is just wow. I mean I can't even explain how beautiful she is.

SHE IS SO CUTE IT'S A LITTLE UNBEARABLE. I'm seriously pissed at the lack of Becky in part two.

I made these originally for Tumblr but decided I hated the coloring so I'll just post them here instead~


I love how she sneakily places her hand on Clare's shoulder. I predict a Blare shippers thread in the near future.


She is so precious, omg I can't deal.

Oh and I found this on Tumblr and I am like crying over her beauty.



SHE LOOKS LIKE LANA DEL REY. I think Degrassi tried to make her "ugly" for the character and they are failing miserably~

lol I know Sarah has such a perfect face. I don't think they tried to make her ugly though. I think they were going for simple maybe to counteract her loud personality?

And Becky's "real" intro is tonight. I can't wait to see how she clashes with Eli.

Congrats Becky, you might just be the first person to win against Eli in a battle of wit. I like that Becky is standing her ground. She's not stupid, she knows when to hold your hand and when to show your cards.

I'm also hoping that Imogen's excitement about the musical eventually leads to a Becky/Imogen friendship. I'm all for that kind of sunshine and rainbows.

I want Becky to be friends with EVERYBODY. I also have a feeling that Becky would, at the very least, pretend to be friends with everybody. I love how she got that little glint in her eye as she was circling Eli, like she got a rush out of taking control.

Also I can't even explain how delighted I feel every time Becky opens her mouth.

Eli inadvertently came up with the most perfect nickname... Little Miss Sunshine! I love it. Can that be added to the thread title?

That was great! She's clever and she knows it. I do think that Becky sincerely wants to make an effort to befriend everyone but if you cross her...

I second that!

And can we have a list? And can I be on said list?



Tomorrow's episode is going to be a big test though. I've been okay with the idea of her being homophobic because honestly people are but it can also be quite the trigger so I'm curious how far this is going to go.
Spoiler:



I'm also curious if we'll see her interact with Clare. Seemed like Clarebear was sticking up for her a bit tonight...

I guess I'm not too concerned because Degrassi characters have been redeemed from much worse. As far as homophobia goes, look at Drew, and Owen, and Spinner (repeatedly), and Alex, and Bianca... the list goes on and on. All of those characters made hateful and ignorant comments. Alex outed Marco at a school assembly and said it was better to be a freak than a "queer." A season later, she was an out and proud lesbian.

I'm telling you, Blare is happening!

Regarding a change of heart storyline with Becky...
Spoiler:


Added Little Miss Sunshine to the title (it is a great name for her) and added a supporters list as well- which has room for plenty more members.
