Rachel Mcadams Early life

Her Hollywood follow-up was another teen movie in which she played the Queen Bee in Tina Fey’s hit comedy Mean Girls, alongside Hollywood siren Lindsay Lohan. Not one to be typecast, Rachel was next seen in the tear-jerking film adaptation of The Notebook, alongside Ryan Gosling, featuring Rachel in a considerably more sympathetic role and showing the public she was hardly just a teen-queen character.

Despite her success in the past, the summer of 2005 found Rachel in an even bigger spotlight as she had to movies released; the unexpected comedy hit The Wedding Crashers, alongside Owen Wilson, and the intense thriller Red Eye with Cillian Murphy and directed by Wes Craven. Her last flick of 2005 was The Family Stone, in which Rachel took a step back from leading lady status to play in a cast ensemble with Diane Keaton, Luke Wilson, and Sarah Jessica Parker.

Currently, Rachel is getting ready to film Marriage, a 40’s-era drama with Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan, to be directed by Ira Sachs and released in 2007. Attended Original Kids Theatre Company in London, Ontario In 1995, she received an acting award for her role in the one-act high school play I Live in a Little Town when it was presented at the prestigious Ontario Showcase at the Sears Drama Festival.

Studied theater at York University in Toronto, where she appeared in numerous stage and student film productions. During her senior year, she played a child in The Piper, a workshop led by a creative team from Toronto’s Necessary Angel Theatre Company. Worked at a McDonalds for 3 summers. Was told to partly model the character of Regina George after Alec Baldwin’s performance in Glengarry Glen Ross (1992). Received a record five MTV Movie Award nominations in a single year.

 

McAdams made her first on-screen performance in “The Famous Jett Jackson” (Disney, 1998-2002) as Hannah, the bulimic older sister of one of the main characters. McAdams also had a starring role in “Shotgun Love Dolls” (MTV, 2001), a pilot shot for the music network that ultimately collected dust on the shelf. Her feature debut came with “My Name is Tanino” (2001), a comedy helmed by Italian director Paolo Virzi, about a young, carefree Italian (Corrado Fortuna) who chases after an American tourist (McAdams) to the U.S. after their romantic liaison in his hometown.

Though many actors who try to transfer success from their native lands to America usually suffer years of struggle, McAdams managed to land a big role right out of the gate. She starred in “The Hot Chick” (2002), a teen comedy about a mean-spirited high school girl—popular, captain of the cheerleading squad and dating the quarterback—who gets a heavy dose of comeuppance when, through the workings of a spell, wakes up to find herself trapped in the body of a 30-something man played by Rob Schneider. McAdams did another turn as a mean-spirited high schooler in “Mean Girls” (2004), written by “Saturday Night Live” veteran Tina Fey. Though similar to her role in “The Hot Chick”, McAdams delved deep into character by exploring the machine-like quality of wanting to hurt people just for the fun of it, and she also brought a surprisingly level of sympathy to the character.

Despite her penchant for playing mean girls, McAdams was always on the hunt for imaginative scripts with challenging characters. Her search paid off when she was cast in “The Notebook” (2004), a star-crossed period romance between a spunky Southern debutante and a poor but charming small town man (Ryan Gosling). She followed up with the popular Owen Wilson-Vince Vaughn comedy “Wedding Crashers” (2005), adding sparkle and verve to what might have otherwise been a thankless role as the woman who finally snares the inveterate wedding invader Wilson’s heart. Then she took center stage in the Wes Craven thriller “Red Eye” (2005), playing a resourceful hotel employee who finds herself trapped on an airline flight with a menacing stranger (Cillian Murphy) who terrorizes her to switch the room of a political guest at her hotel in exchange for her father’s life. Again McAdams demonstrated a strong on-screen magnetism and proved she could create a believable, relatable character in the midst of the most high-concept situation. She was then part of the ensemble cast in “The Family Stone” (2005), a relationship drama about the eldest son (Dermot Mulroney) of a bohemian family bringing his controlling New The ensuing battle of conflicting attitudes mixed with awkwardness and hostility causes relationships to split and secrets to be revealed.
