Canadian Celebs

I know this site is mainly focused on sports, but I also have an interest in making a list of all the Canadian Actors, Actresses and Musicians out there so anyone interested has a better idea of who out there in the entertainment word came from the Great White North. Anyone listed were raised for a period of time in Canada. There are many other celebrities out there with connections to Canada like Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson known for his career wrestling in the WWE and as an actor is the son of a Canadian wrester Rocky Johnson (born Wayde Douglas Bowles) who grew up in Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada. The Rock even had a tryout with the Canadian Football Leagues Calgary Stampeders and spent some time on their practice roster during the 1995 season.

Here are links to some lists available online until I get a chance to go through them.
