We’re so proud – Redbox Canada is turning 1 next week! It seems like just yesterday our sibling up north was rolling out its first boxes.

To celebrate this milestone birthday, we’ve put together a list of the most popular Canadian actors and actresses based on Redbox U.S. rentals for the past 12 months.

Drumroll, please…

The Top 10 Most-Rented Canadian Stars in the U.S.

10. Noel Fisher (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2)

9.  Victor Garber (Argo, Entitled)

8.  Seth Rogen (The Guilt Trip, Spooky Stories: Shrek’s Thrilling Tales, Kung Fu Panda Holiday, Take This Waltz)

7. Ryan Reynolds (Safe House, The Change-Up, Green Lantern)

6. Cobie Smulders (Safe Haven, The Avengers)

5. Rachel McAdams (The Vow, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, Midnight in Paris, Morning Glory)

4. Alexander Ludwig (The Hunger Games)

3. Eugene Levy (Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection, Goon)

2. Donald Sutherland (Treasure Island, Dawn Rider, The Hunger Games)


1. Taylor Kitsch (John Carter, Battleship, Savages)

Congrats, Taylor!

Not too shabby for a kid from Kelowna, British Columbia, who once had to sleep on subway trains in the middle of the night before he caught his big break! That being the role of Tim Riggins for five seasons on the TV series Friday Night Lights. Now his three starring roles in John Carter, Battleship and Savages have propelled him to the top of our list.

Who’s your favorite Canadian movie star?
