In it, a young Canadian actor by the name of Aubrey Drake Graham played Jimmy Brooks, a basketball star at Degrassi High until a school shooting left his character paralyzed from the waist down. It was a hit television series but at the time, I never imagined Aubrey Drake Graham would one day become one of the most famous and successful entertainers in the world!
