Betty Compson, Heidi Somers, Curt Schilling, Bristol Palin & Levi Johnston are some of the celebrities who hail from Alaska.

Situated in the northern most tip of North America, Alaska is one of the coldest regions in the whole continent. This state shares its border with the British Columbia region of Canada. Many sources on the internet state that the population of Alaska is scarce, perhaps the least when compared to the other 49 states. It is believed that in 1867, the United States acquired this state from Russia, which governed Alaska back then. Not many know that this American state is also a place where several celebrities were born and raised. Singer/Songwriter Jewel, model Holly Madison, writer Margaret Elizabeth Bell, Basketball star Carlos Boozer, painter Sydney Lawrence and Baseball star Curt Schilling are a few famous people from Alaska. Carlos Boozer is one of the contemporary icons of Basketball who has represented several renowned teams like ‘Chicago Bulls’, ‘Cleveland Cavaliers’ as well as ‘Los Angeles Lakers’. Jewel has created several chartbuster singles and has also been nominated for the Grammy Awards four times. Here are the names of several other famous people from Alaska whom you probably didn’t know.
