Rachel Anne McAdams was born on November 17, 1978 in London, Ontario, Canada, to Sandra Kay (Gale), a nurse, and Lance Frederick McAdams, a truck driver and furniture mover. She is of English, Welsh, Irish, and Scottish descent. Rachel became involved with acting as a teenager and by the age of 13 was performing in Shakespearean productions in summer theater camp; she went on to graduate with honors with a BFA degree in Theater from York University. After her debut in an episode of Disney’s Известный Джет Джексон (1998), she co-starred in the Canadian TV series Пращи и стрелы (2003), a comedy-drama about the trials and travails of a Shakespearean theater group, and won a Gemini award for her performance in 2003. Her breakout role as Regina George in the hit comedy Дрянные девчонки (2004) instantly catapulted her onto the short list of Hollywood’s hottest young actresses. She followed that film with a star turn opposite Ryan Gosling in the adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks bestseller Дневник памяти (2004), which was a surprise box office success and became the predominant romantic drama for a new, young generation of moviegoers. After filming, McAdams and Gosling became romantically involved and dated through mid-2007. McAdams next showcased her versatility onscreen with the manic comedy Незваные гости (2005), the thriller Ночной рейс (2005), and the holiday drama Привет семье (2005). McAdams then explored the independent film world with Супружество (2007), which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival and also starred Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper and Patricia Clarkson. Starring roles in the military drama Крутой поворот (2008), the newspaper thriller Большая игра (2009), and the romance Жена путешественника во времени (2009) followed before she starred opposite Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law in Guy Ritchie’s international blockbuster Шерлок Холмс (2009). McAdams played the plucky producer of a failing morning TV show in Доброе утро (2010), the materialistic fiancée of Owen Wilson in Woody Allen’s Полночь в Париже (2011), and returned to romantic drama territory with the hit film Клятва (2012) opposite Channing Tatum. The actress also stars with Ben Affleck in Terrence Malick’s К чуду (2012) and alongside Noomi Rapace in Brian De Palma’s thriller Страсть (2012). In 2005, McAdams received ShoWest’s “Supporting Actress of the Year” Award as well as the “Breakthrough Actress of the Year” at the Hollywood Film Awards. In 2009, she was awarded with ShoWest’s “Female Star of the Year.” As of 2011, she has been romantically linked with her Полночь в Париже (2011) co-star Michael Sheen.
