7 Of The Most Famous People That Were Born Or Raised In Alberta

More often than not, talent comes from unexpected places. Some of the world's biggest models were discovered on random street corners, the same way that some of the world's most beloved celebrities were born right here in Alberta! Here are seven famous people born in Alberta that you'd never expect.

Actors and actresses, country singers, and singing sisters are just a few of the talented people that Alberta has to be proud of. Who knows, maybe one day you'll be on this list!

Nathan Fillion

You probably recognize this face from shows like Castle and The Rookie, but did you know that Nathan Fillion was actually born and raised right here in Alberta? He grew up in Edmonton and attended both the University of Alberta and Concordia University.

Tegan & Sara Quin

Most sisters fight way too often to be able to spend large amounts of time together, but Tegan and Sara Quin are able to put all that aside and spend the majority of their time together touring and making music. The pair was born in Calgary, and they make sure to come back to perform super often!

Brett Kissel

Country singer Brett Kissel definitely doesn't help to perpetuate the stereotype that Alberta is full of cowboys, but he happens to be very talented, so we'll forgive him. The singer was born in St. Paul, where his family has lived for over five generations.

Michael J. Fox

Michael J. Fox has had countless iconic roles over the years in movies like Teen Wolf, Back to the Future, and Family Ties. Despite being diagnosed with Parkinson's a few years back, the Edmonton actor hasn't slowed down and is still adding new titles to his evergrowing resume.

Cory Monteith

When Glee was in its heyday, the late Cory Monteith was a total teen heartthrob. People loved seeing him portray Finn on the hit series, belting out endless Journey anthems. The actor, who was born in Calgary, tragically passed away in 2013 due to an overdose, but his legacy lives on.

Elisha Cuthbert

She goes by Elisha Phaneuf now, but the actress from Calgary will never forget her Alberta roots. Throughout her career, Elisha has had several big roles, and most recently you can catch her alongside Ashton Kutcher in the Netflix original series, The Ranch.
