Munro Chambers as Eli Goldsworthy
Munro Chambers joined the cast of Degrassi in its tenth season as Eli. Munro's previous credits include The Latest Buzz, Murder in the Hamptons (Poppy Montgomery), Little Men, Prince Returns (Jack Polance, John Corbett),Godsend (Robert DeNiro, Greg Kinnear and Rebecca Romaign), A Wrinkle in Time, Bailey's Billion$ (Tim Curry, Jennifer Tilley, Dean Cain and John Lovitz) and Good Fences.
In 2010, Munro traveled to India to build a school with the organization "Free The Children". A documentary of the trip was made for MuchMusic in Canada. Munro, who was also a nationally ranked trampolinist, enjoys sports of all kinds and hanging out with his friends when he is not working.
From the moment he parks his vintage hearse in the Degrassi parking lot, it's clear Eli's different-cute, but different. An outsider's outsider, Eli's mysterious, opinionated and eloquent, always at the ready with a deflating sardonic quip that often invokes the wrath of the Grade 11 bullies. But rather than give in, Eli chooses to build his reputation as a threat instead of fading into the background. While his behaviour has weirded-out classmates, others have written off him off as just plain creepy. The truth is Eli wants what every teenager wants: to belong.
