Devyn Nekoda stars in "Degrassi: The Next Generation" on TeenNick as Arlene Takahashi, a quintessential nerd who is sometimes tucked away at Degrassi wearing elf ears and reading comics. Nekoda joined the series in Season 14.

A rising young star on the entertainment scene, Devyn Nekoda started dancing at the age of two with the Lisa Naves Dance Company in Simcoe, Ontario, Canada, where she studied Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Tap, Acrobatics and Hip Hop. She also enjoys attending dance conventions where she gains experience from top choreographers from across the nation. She has been a scholarship winner every year since the age of six with the Triple Threat Convention and hopes one day to follow in their director's footsteps. Nekoda is a natural on stage and has won numerous titles at regional and national events across Canada and the United States. On stage, she has performed with Edyta Sliwinska in the production of "Dance Star" at the Avalon Theater and toured southern Ontario with Tree House's "Roll Play Live.

Nekoda has also proved to be a natural on camera. Her very first audition for film scored her a leading role in the most recent American Girl movie "Isabelle Dances into the Spotlight." More success quickly followed with recurring roles on "The Next Step," Season 2, and a lead role in the YTV digital pilot "Acting Up."

Nekoda is an honor roll student at École Dufferin and is fluent in English and French.
