Rachel Anne McAdams (born November 17, 1978) is a Canadian actress. After graduating from a theatre program at York University, Toronto in 2001, she worked steadily as an actress until finding fame in 2004 with starring roles in teen comedy Mean Girls and romantic drama The Notebook.

However, she withdrew from public life in 2006 and 2007. During this time, she turned down leading roles in, amongst others, The Devil Wears Prada and Casino Royale.

She made a low-key return to work in 2008, starring in two little-seen independent films, Married Life and The Lucky Ones, but returned to prominence in 2009 with appearances in political thriller State of Play, sci-fi romance TheTime Traveler's WifeThe Time Traveler's Wife (film) and action-adventure Sherlock Holmes. Her first star vehicle was 2010 comedy Morning Glory. In 2011, she appeared in Woody Allen's romantic comedy Midnight in Paris. She will make a cameo appearance in Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows in late 2011 and will appear in two movies in 2012: romantic drama The Vow with Channing Tatum and an as-yet-untitled Terrence Malick film with Ben Affleck.
