Talks fashion, music & future.
“I’m capable of any and everything I put my mind to. I’m just as excited to see where I’ll be, as everyone else is.”
Starting early with a role as Connor Deslauriers in Degrassi, AJ Saudin is no stranger to the industry. Having tapped into the creative worlds of music, television, production and fashion – walking the runways of London and Milan – we sat down with the burgeoning talent to talk style, inspiration and what’s next.

Ok AJ, let’s talk. Introduce yourself.
Hey what’s up? My name is AJ Saudin. Some people know me for acting on Degrassi, where I played the role of Connor Deslauriers for 6 years of my life. Some people know me for my music that I put out under my last name. The rest know me as the guy with the “greatest glow up of all time”. Lol

In 5 years, where can we expect to find you, and what will you be doing?
That’s a tough one. I don’t want to limit myself. I’m capable of any and everything I put my mind to. I’m just as excited to see where I’ll be, as everyone else is. Time will tell though.
All of your passions are quite demanding in terms of time. How do you balance Acting, a Music Career, and now Modelling?
I try to prioritize my passions by the ones that make me the happiest in that time. When it comes to my passions, I’m not thinking about the money, that will eventually come, I’m more so thinking about my happiness and my mental health.

Also, how do you find time to unwind & catch up with loved ones?
I have a very tight knit family and I understand that we’re all getting older and I’m only getting busier so I try to make sure to spend as much time with them as I can right now.
Is balance ever achievable for creatives with a passion?
It all depends on how much you’re willing to sacrifice.
