Sean Wasn’t In Drake’s ‘Degrassi’ Reunion Video, But The Actor’s Explanation Was Very Sweet

If you would like to know why Sean isn’t in Drake’s Degrassi reunion video, aka the "I’m Upset" music video, actor Daniel Clark is in the same boat. No, Clark doesn’t know why he wasn’t asked to be in his former co-star’s new music video, and yeah, he is bummed he wasn’t asked to be in his former co-star’s music video. But as disappointed as he may be, Clark only has the nicest things to say about Aubrey Drake Graham and the vid. Unlike an episode of Degrassi: The Next Generation, there really isn’t any drama here. Whatever it takes, you know a Degrassi Community School alum will make it through.

Before Drake became one of the biggest musicians on the planet, he played Jimmy Brooks on the long-running Canadian teen soap opera Degrassi: The Next Generation. On Wednesday, June 13, Drake released a music video for “I’m Upset” that pays homage to his time on the TV series. The premise: Drake/Jimmy/Aubrey goes to his high school reunion at Degrassi Community School, and almost everyone from his era of Degrassi: TNG shows up. Spinner (Shane Kippel), Paige (Lauren Collins), Marco (Adamo Ruggiero), Hazel (Andrea Lewis), Ashley (Melissa McIntyre), Archibald “Snake” Simpson (Stefan Brogen), Emma (Miriam McDonald) — name a character who appeared on Degrassi in the ’00s, and they’re probably in the video. Even Rick (Ephraim Ellis), the character who shot and paralyzed Jimmy, was brought back to life… only to be rightfully chased out of the event.

But Sean Cameron, a character who was on several seasons of TNG, is no where to be found. What gives? Alas, the actor who played Sean has no clue. Some hours after the video dropped, Clark told Page Six,

He continued,

Aww. Sean wasn’t the only Degrassi: TNG character to miss out on the epic reunion. As many fans noticed, J.T Yorke (Ryan Cooley) and Jay Hogart (Mike Lobel) were no where to be found in the "I’m Upset" clip. Shortly after the video hit the internet, Lobel tweeted, “I’m a little upset." Several hours later, Lobel added,

And when a fan mentioned J.T.’s absence to Drake on Instagram, the “Nice For What” rapper said Cooley “thought it was a scam.” (Bustle has reached out to Cooley for comment, but did not receive an immediate response.)

While Clark is not happy about being left out (understandable), he did go on Instagram Live on Thursday and say it made him “feel great” to see his co-stars together again on screen (also understandable). And again, while he wishes he was included, he told his Instagram Live on June 14 audience he’s thankful that Drake made the whole thing happen. He said,

Clark added,

Well, jeez. That sure is a nice and mature and sincere response. No, you’re crying Degrassi nostalgia-loaded tears.

Some may say his response is about as edgy as a butterknife. And hey, that isn’t a bad thing.
