Toronto's hometown hero is a man of many talents. Formerly known as Aubrey Graham, Drake's debut album blew up the charts, catapulting him into Hollywood's A-List. Before hitting it big in the music scene, Drake, or Aubrey as he was known then, was a television star.

Drake gained a fan following on Degrassi: The Next Generation. Playing Jimmy Brooks, the local high school basketball star who was forced into a wheelchair after being injured in a school shooting, Drake became one of Canada's most beloved teen stars.

Before leaving the halls of Degrassi for Hollywood, Drake filmed the pilot episode for a new series, Us & Them. The tongue-in-cheek satire of the entertainment industry costars Maxin Elsadig (Degrassi: The Next Generation) and has received an enthusiastic response online. Production was halted thanks to Drake's intensive touring schedule, but at least he has something to look forward to working on when he returns home.
