Rachel Anne Mc Adams (born November 17, 1978) is a Canadian actress.
In 2015, her highest profile roles were in the second season of the HBO crime drama True Detective, and as journalist Sacha Pfeiffer in the drama Spotlight.
Mc Adams began figure skating when she was four years old, but turned down an opportunity to move to Toronto when she was nine years old for pair skating training. She also made her Canadian film debut that year in the comedy My Name is Tanino.
The Italian-Canadian co-production was filmed in Sicily when Mc Adams was 22 years old, and it marked her first time on an airplane.
"Here she is feisty, vulnerable, plucky, warm, funny ...
Watch the poignancy of the scene when she meets her boyfriend's family." In 2009, Mc Adams starred with Russell Crowe, Helen Mirren and Ben Affleck in the political thriller State of Play, based on the BBC drama television series of the same name.
