Alicia Dea Josipovic

Josipovic is a Canadian actress who rose to fame after playing the role of Bianca on the Canadian hit tv series- 'Degrassi'.

Born in 1991, Josipovic's middle name "Dea" is a homage to her grandmother, who was a well-known fashion designer and opera singer. 

Josipovic took to stage from a very early age. At the tender age of five, she began performing as a dancer, and even danced competitively for eight years, winning several accolades. Alongside dancing, she also dabbled in singing and acting by performing in plays and participating in choirs, while growing up.

With a burning desire to further hone her craft, Josipovic enrolled herself in Etobicoke School of the Arts. She graduated at the age of 18 and went on to audition for her first movie 'Camp Rock 2'. She landed the role of a dancer in the movie. 

At 19, she signed her first record deal and is currently working on her debut album with a team of talented song writers/producers.
