Bryant Lester Thomas, better known to his schoolmates as B.L.T., was a student on the Degrassi Junior High and Degrassi High series (starting at Grade 8 in the first two seasons, Grade 9 in the third, and Grades 10 and 11 Degrassi High). He briefly dated Alexa Pappadopolos. He later became Michelle Accette's boyfriend, staying for a time even as her parents seem to disapprove of her relationship with a boy of his heritage and skin color. He was best friends with Simon Dexter. He was portrayed by Dayo Ade.

Degrassi Season 1-5[]

B.L.T. was more of a supporting friend when other students had problems. He would ask if Shane was okay when Spike would reject him, or he would be seen playing catch with Joey, Snake, and Wheels.

In his grade 9 year, B.L.T. started going out with Michelle Accette even though her father did not approve of her going out with an African-Canadian student. B.L.T. helped her move out of her father's house and find an apartment. Later in high school, B.L.T. joined the Degrassi Football Team along with Simon Dexter. In his grade 10 year, he broke up with Michelle to be with Cindy, after cheating on Michelle over the summer. When Michelle finds out, she pours milk all over him in the cafeteria.

In the DJH Season 3 episode He Ain't Heavy..., B.L.T. gets into a small fight with Snake. They are doing an experiment in class about AIDS, and B.L.T. and Luke start making fun of homosexuals. This enrages Snake as his brother has just revealed his homosexuality to him.



In the Season 3 episode Black & White, B.L.T. gets in a fight with another student for calling him a racial slur. This is also the episode where he and Michelle start showing interest in each other and he asks her to the school dance. Her parents say she cannot go to the dance with him after meeting him and seeing he was black. It turns out they are a little bit racist. She decides to go with him anyway.

B.L.T.'s character became much more expanded after Black & White in the last season of Degrassi Junior High. Through most of the first three seasons, he was just a background character. He received more screen time in Degrassi High where he and Michelle are together in the first season and broken up for most of the second.
