Imagine watching Hollywood movies without the likes of Keanu Reeves, Jim Carrey, Michael J. Fox, Leslie Nielsen, Ryan Gosling, Pamela Anderson, Eric McCormack or Christopher Plummer! Quite soulless, isn’t it? Now what if Hollywood is ripped off some of its most legendary movies like, ‘The Notebook’, ‘Back To the Future’, ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love’, ‘Dumb and Dumber’, ‘The Matrix’ or even ‘The Sound of Music’? Bare and brazen it would be! Canadian actors have throttled much of the Hollywood film industry for generations now. Known for their inherent acting talent and skills, they have given Hollywood some of the best known films that have entertained and touched millions of lives from the world over. Born in Canada, these actors made their transition into Hollywood very swiftly and soon dominated the big screen with their superb acting, to-die-for looks, power-packed performance and natural body language. For their hard work in front of camera, Canadian actors have been bestowed with numerous awards and honors as well. Dig into this section and update yourself with a long list of Canadian actors who have steamed up the 70mm screen with their natural acting and killing expressions.
