Career of Devyn Nekoda

Before ever stepping in front of a camera, Deviyn Nekoda made a name for herself as a stage dancer. She participated in a “Dancing Star” production at the Avalon Theater with former “Dancing with the Stars” contestant Edyta Sliwinska. She also performed with Tree House’s Roll Play Live on a trip to southern Ontario. She made an appearance in the music video for the 2013 song “Speeches” by Walk off the Earth.

2014 saw Nekoda make her stage debut in “An American Girl: Isabelle Dances Into the Spotlight,” where she played the role of Luisa. The seventh movie in the American Girl series follows nine-year-old skilled dancer Isabelle Palmer (Erin Pitt), who dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Isabelle and her best friend are roughly the same age as Nekoda’s Luisa. She is fiercely protective of Isabelle and does modern dance.

She debuted on the small screen as Wendy Chong in a cameo role during the first season of “Max and Shred.” The Next Step, a hugely popular Canadian mockumentary TV series, was her next part. She made her television debut as a J-Troupe dancer in a season two episode, and she later returned to the role in a season three episode.

In the teen drama “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” which is set in the Degrassi world, Nekoda was chosen to play the recurring role of Arlene Takahashi, a shy, geeky sophomore at the Degrassi Community School. She made seven appearances in the CGI/live-action children’s television series “Annedroids” on Amazon between 2015 and 2016. She also appeared as a guest star in the sitcom “Raising Expectations” on Family Channel and in the television film “The Swap” in 2016. This is her first Disney project, “The Swap.” Megan Shull’s young adult novel of the same name served as the inspiration for the screenplay. She collaborated with Luke Bilyk, Molly Ringwald, and Jason Priestley on “Raising Expectations.”

After that, she was picked to star in the television series “Backstage.”
The television show “Backstage,” which was created by Jennifer Pertsch and Lara Azzopardi, has so far aired two seasons. The focus of the program is on the struggles that each of the students at the made-up Keaton School of the Arts are facing. The characters in the show regularly break the fourth wall to interact with the audience; these moments are known as “confessionals” and are one of its distinctive features. Vanessa Morita is portrayed by Nekoda as a kind, gifted, upbeat, diligent, and determined ballet dancer. Nekoda has never been in a show as the star before. ‘Backstage’, like several other features in her reel, has provided her the chance to merge her two loves, acting and dance.
She also starred in the short film “Mishka” in 2017. She portrayed Allison, a recurring role in Netflix’s drama series “Northern Rescue,” in 2018.
