Suave, handsome and charming, this player knows what he wants and always gets it. When his killer smile doesn't deliver (and it rarely doesn't), his skills of subtle manipulation will. Not that Drew means harm- this fun-loving guy's guy just wants a good time. Not a particularly committed student, Drew's content to sail through school pulling down a C average because he'd rather bro-down with the Grade 12 power players and assert himself as one of the princes of Degrassi's halls. Drew's got mission: secure his rep as Degrassi's most eligible bachelor, and watch the ladies flock to him. Not that he's interested in settling down, a guy's gotta have options.
