10 Of The Hottest Canadian Actresses
Canada is famous for many things. Lots of snow and ice, an alarming number of accidents caused by moose, and really beautiful actresses. We found that snow and moose accidents didn’t make for particularly interesting reading, but beautiful actresses did.
Join us as we learn more about the top 10 hottest Canadian actresses, and find out why this country has hit the equivalent of an online casino jackpot in the looks and acting department!
Widely considered as one of the most gorgeous women in television, Elisha Cuthbert grew up in Alberta. Her acting skills were honed in Montreal in Toronto, after which the blonde beauty made her way to Los Angeles. It was a smart move on her part, because it wasn’t long before she landed a leading role in the acclaimed series 24, playing Kim Bauer. Not much has been seen of her since then, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t still a Canadian actress that turns heads.
Born in Sweden and relocating to Ontario at a young age, most will no need no introduction to this blonde bombshell. Her long list of high profile movies includes The Comeback, The Heartbreak Kid, and Watchmen. Her role as Silk Spectre II in Watchmen earned her a Saturn Award nomination as best supporting actress.
Shay Mitchell embodies the term “exotic beauty.” Her smouldering looks are a combination of Irish, Scottish and Filipino heritage, which is just about as much exotic as can be jammed into one lovely lady. Shay had a passion for entertainment from a young age, and soon got into modelling and acting in Ontario, her hometown. A local fan base was amassed across Canada, and her most passionate followers gave her the nickname Shay-Lo due to them considering her the local Jennifer Lopez. After modelling around the world, she headed back to Canada and landed a role in Pretty Little Liars, playing Emily Fields. This is, no doubt, just the start of a long career for beautiful Shay Mitchell.
Vancouver born Kristen Kreuk is another lady that gets her beauty from a pleasantly mixed bloodline. A father and mother made her the ultimate beauty, propelling her into the spotlight from an early age. She got her break in Canadian televisions series Edgemont, after which a starring role as Lana Lang in Smallville made her a household name. She still lives in Toronto, and although has been seen less of late, has a long career ahead of her.
Toronto born Rachel McAdams has a truly impressive filmography stretching from 2002 until the present day. She has appeared in more television shows and films than can be listed here, but she is most well known for break out roles in Mean Girls and The Notebook, and most recently as Christine Palmer in Doctor Strange. Dozens of other memorable performances make her not just a great Canadian born actress, but also one of the most active and respected in the world.
33-year-old Emily VanCamp was born in Ontario, and has recently shot to fame with her role as Emily in Revenge and Agent 13/Sharon Carter, in the Captain America franchise. She also stars in television show The Resident, and is an excellent addition to the list.
Although not born in Canada, Bulgarian Nina Dobrev moved there at the age of two. She has since become one of the most respected television and film actresses in the world, although is now permanently living in Los Angeles. So, technically speaking, this talented lady is a Bulgarian born, Canadian raised, current resident of Los Angeles. You’ll have seen her in The Vampire Diaries, Fam, among many other films and shows.
This lovely lady grew up in Quebec, and landed up acting in local commercials thanks to acting lessons paid for by her brother. She headed over to Vancouver to take acting more seriously, and has since appeared in multiple productions. Although traveling the world as work demands it, Emmanuelle still lives permanently in Ontario.
Vancouver born Jessica Lowndes is best known as Adrianna Tate-Duncan in 90210. But this stunning lady has been in a long list of other shows and HBO films, and is also a talented singer and songwriter. Her musical talents were often showcased in 90210, proving that this multi-talented beauty has many future opportunities.
Legendary actress Cobie Smulders hardly needs any introduction. This Vancouver born stunner was a leading lady in How I Met Your Mother for nine years. She originally found fame as a model, but disliked the industry so much it nearly put her off pursuing further employment as an entertainer. Today she is widely recognised as one of the most famous faces in television, and a long career as an agent in Marvel movies surely still awaits her.
