During the mid-2000s, Farber played Ellie Nash in Degrassi, while Levy made his mark in the entertainment industry as an MTV VJ.
A few years later, as their career progressed individually, the duo came together for a 2009 TV film, Degrassi Goes Hollywood. While Farber reprised her role as Ellie Nash, the actor portrayed Robbie in the movie.
It is uncertain whether they had already met before having the chance to collaborate on a project. But it is apparent their friendship has strengthened throughout these years.

"Hooray for awards shows that honor the imagination, determination, commitment, courage, and wholeheartedness of artists. @instadanjlevy works so damn," she continued.
