    So, a Canadian (namely @Owain Taggart ) has won the last couple contests here. In honour of that, I decided to go with a bit of a Canadian theme this time around!

    Our theme this week is Canadian Performers in Movies & Television. Wait, you say, I don't know any Canadian performers! Yes, you do. You may not know they're Canadian, but you know them. Sometimes it seems performers are one of our largest exports! :)

    For the purposes of this contest, it doesn't matter if they later renounced their citizenship, or acquired a new citizenship, or whatever. If they were born in Canada, they are eligible. The image can be a promotional or behind-the-scenes image, or it can be an image of them in a role. If you use a role image, SF&F is OK.

    As usual, maximum image size is 200 x 200 pixels, and maximum file size is 1 MB.

    Contest will be open for about a week. Still stuck? Wikipedia has a whole page that may help you.

    A special thank you goes to the aforementioned @Owain Taggart for giving me the privilege of running this contest as the runner-up in the previous contest.

    Have fun! [​IMG]

    Great topic idea! And yes, there are loads, so it will be interesting to see what turns up. Ironically, many of these dream of heading to Hollywood after having a lower profile in Canada, and end up going back to Canada when it comes to shooting.

    Off the top of my head: Ryan Gosling, Paul Gross, Rachel McAdams, Donald and Keifer Sutherland, Leslie Neilsen, Drake (Yes, he was an actor before he turned musician, on a little series known as Degrassi: TNG), Mike Myers, Dan Akroyd, and many many more.

    Trek Contigent: William Shatner, James Doohan, Nicole de Boer.

    Out of curiosity, would Michael J. Fox count?
