Brassy actress Lauren Collins entered the limelight in her teens, with numerous series roles and telemovie appearances in her native Canada, but achieved broadest recognition as manipulative, scheming high schooler Paige Michalchuk on the popular series Degrassi: The Next Generation. Collins remained with the program through the end of its fourth season, a stint that witnessed her character undergoing numerous personal trials and tribulations and attaining a much-needed dimensionality that she initially (according to Collins' own admission) lacked. Around 2005 (coincident with the end of Degrassi's series run) the actress moved into feature work, with supporting roles in outings including the Antonio Banderas inspirational drama Take the Lead (2006) and the teen comedies Charlie Bartlett (2007) and Picture This (2008).
