Dayo Ade’s family moved to Toronto when he was very young. Showing an interest in acting at just 11 years old, he landed his first role at CBC in two years later, playing Bryant Lister ‘BLT’ Thomas on Degrassi Junior High. The second in the boundry-breaking Degrassi series, Dayo Ade played the part of the shows’ first-ever mixed-race couple.
