RACHEL McADAMS (Lisa Reisert) is currently co-starring with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in the comedy hit "Wedding Crashers.” Later this year, McAdams stars in the holiday comedy "The Family Stone,” joining an ensemble cast that also includes Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Claire Danes and Luke Wilson. The film is slated for release in November 2005. 

In 2004, McAdams starred in back-to-back hit films, beginning with Mark Waters' comedy smash "Mean Girls,” written by Tina Fey. McAdams played Regina, the beautiful leader of a high school girls' clique, who goes to war with the new girl in town, played by Lindsay Lohan. Immediately following "Mean Girls,” McAdams took a dramatic turn in the romantic film "The Notebook,” starring alongside Ryan Gosling, Sam Shepard, Joan Allen, Gena Rowlands and James Garner, under the direction of Nick Cassavetes. McAdams captured the hearts of audiences and won critical acclaim for her performance as a young girl forced to give up the love of her life.

On the heels of both "Mean Girls” and "The Notebook,” McAdams was named the Supporting Actress of the Year at the 2005 ShoWest Convention. She also won three MTV Movie Awards in the categories of Breakthrough Female; Best On-Screen Team, shared with her "Mean Girls” castmates; and Best Kiss, shared with Ryan Gosling, for "The Notebook.”

Born in Canada, McAdams was raised in a small town just outside of Toronto. She went on to graduate with honors with a BFA degree in Theater from York University, where she performed in numerous student films and stage productions.

McAdams began her professional acting career in Canada and made her feature film debut in "My Name is Tanino,” directed by award-winning filmmaker Paolo Virzi, which premiered at the 2003 Venice Film Festival. She also co-starred in the film "Perfect Pie,” for which she earned a Genie Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress. The following year, she won a Gemini Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the Canadian series "Slings and Arrows.”  McAdams first came to the attention of American audiences with her role in the outrageous comedy "The Hot Chick,” in which she starred opposite Rob Schneider.
