SHERLOCK HOLMES: A GAME OF SHADOWS

RACHEL McADAMS (Irene Adler) starred opposite Owen Wilson in Woody Allen's romantic comedy hit "Midnight in Paris,” which premiered to great acclaim at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival. In 2010, she starred in Roger Michell's romantic comedy "Morning Glory,” with Harrison Ford, Patrick Wilson and Diane Keaton. The previous year, McAdams starred in three major motion pictures, ending the year with Guy Ritchie's hit thriller "Sherlock Holmes,” in which she first played the role of Irene Adler.

McAdams has several films upcoming, including an as-yet-untitled drama for director Terrence Malick, with Javier Bardem, Ben Affleck and Rachel Weisz, and the romantic drama "The Vow,” in which she stars opposite Channing Tatum.

A native of Canada, McAdams first captured the attention of Hollywood when she landed the starring role in the 2002 comedy "The Hot Chick.” She then starred in two very different back-to-back hits: the comedy "Mean Girls,” directed by Mark Waters from a screenplay by Tina Fey and also starring Lindsay Lohan; and Nick Cassavetes' romantic drama "The Notebook,” opposite Ryan Gosling.

In summer 2005, McAdams starred with Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in the smash hit comedy "Wedding Crashers.” Later that year, she starred in Wes Craven's thriller "Red Eye,” alongside Cillian Murphy, and joined the ensemble cast of the holiday drama "The Family Stone,” with Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker and Claire Danes. McAdams was named Supporting Actress of the Year at the 2005 ShoWest Convention, and received the Hollywood Breakthrough Award at the 2005 Hollywood Film Festival.

McAdams then starred with Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper and Patricia Clarkson in Ira Sachs' independent, 1940s-set drama "Married Life,” which premiered at the 2007 Toronto Film Festival, and in the 2008 indie feature "The Lucky Ones,” opposite Tim Robbins. In 2009, in addition to "Sherlock Holmes,” she starred in the thriller "State of Play,” with Russell Crowe, Ben Affleck and Helen Mirren, and the romantic drama "The Time Traveler's Wife,” opposite Eric Bana.

McAdams was recently named the Female Star of the Year by the National Association of Theatre Owners at the 2009 ShoWest Convention.
