Famous People From Maine
Situated in the New England region of the northeastern United States of America is the state of Maine. What was once a land exclusively for indigenous people saw and enjoyed diversity after the European arrival. With Augusta as its capital and Portland as its largest city, Maine is popularly referred to as ‘The Pine Tree State’ and even ‘Vacationland’. The state mostly enjoys a continental climate and is renowned for its coastal food which primarily includes lobsters and clams. Many notable people born in Maine have made it tremendously big in various walks of life such as cinema, music, sports, and politics and so on. Established and renowned actors such as the beautifully hilarious Anna Kendrick, the heartthrob Patrick Dempsey, the diva Linda Lavin, Katie Aselton, Judd Nelson and so many more actors hail from this state. The incredible best-selling author Stephen King, who was responsible for creating so many critically acclaimed books and movies, was also born and raised in the state. We are quite certain that you will be speechless by the complete-list of celebrities who are from Maine.
