Top Ten Rising Stars That Hail From The Canadian Prairies

There is something about them prairies, specifically Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Although they’ve packed their bags and moved to bigger cities, there is still sky in their eyes as these ten multi-talented stars shine bright on the silver screen as well as behind the scenes…

Number 5: 

Hannah Anderson of Winnipeg, Manitoba is an actor on the brink of something big. This year she landed a supporting lead in the feature film Love of My Life, set for release in 2016 alongside stars John Hannah, James Fleet, and Anna Chancellor. You will also catch her in the CBC Political Thriller Shoot the Messenger along with our #2, Elyse. Hannah has had a busy year as she has also written, produced and co-directed with Aidan Shipley (Boxing, TIFF 2015 official selection) the short film Comeback in memory of actor/filmmaker Kent Nolan of Regina who passed away in September 2014. 10% of funds raised from the current IndieGoGo campaign will be donated to Class Act Studios, a trust fund in Kent’s name to financially assist children with interest in the arts in his hometown in Saskatchewan.
