During summer break, Adam was involved in a car accident after texting Becky while driving and later passed away during surgery.When Torres was killed off from the series in 2013, controversy ensued, When Degrassi introduced its large and loyal audience to Adam Torres, an authentic, multi-dimensional transgender character, the show not only made television history, but set a new standard industry standard for LGBT inclusion.As saddened as we are to say goodbye to Adam, we feel this storyline will affect even more lives in an authentic way...Alex was originally a poor, violent outcast whose awful home life involved protecting her mother from her abusive boyfriends.They took a break while she attended science summer camp; on her return Dave tells her he slept with someone else.Alli breaks up with him and goes to Jake's cabin where they share a kiss due to her being upset over Dave. She begins dating Leo after a school trip to Paris, and almost gets married.Later she broke up with Paige as they headed down different paths.
And I’ve enjoyed that wild side of his personality as well.
With so few transgender characters on television, we are disappointed that Adam’s story had to end this way, and we hope other shows will follow Degrassi’s lead in bringing stories like his to viewers...
The combination of Adam being a favorite character, and Jordan being at the end of her contract, presented a unique opportunity to tell this story through such a beloved character.
