California girls are fun, but northern girls are fun and sexy - it could be a diet of Beaver Tails, back bacon, and Timmy's double-doubles, it could be something in the water, or maybe it's just all that cold weather preserves our babes more. Either way, there's no denying some of the most beautiful women on TV and the big screen hail from the Great White North. These are the top 10 Canadian hotties right now.
Also known as Sookie Stackhouse on the hot vampire drama "True Blood," the Winnipeg-born actress will appear in this year's flick "Straight A's" as well as "Free Ride," both of which are dramas.
Emily Van Camp
Port Perry, Ontario native Emily Van Camp has pretty girl-next-door looks and is the star of the new show "Revenge," which airs on ABC and CityTV. She was also one of the leads in the now-defunct series "Brothers and Sisters."
Toronto's own Mia Kirshner was a fixture on "The Vampire Diaries" for a season, but this year she has her sights set on bigger-scale projects, like the TV movie "Kiss at Pine Lake" and the big-screen film "The Barrens."
Playing Charlie's sexy dance teacher girlfriend on "Two and Half Men" as well as frightening audiences in "Saw," Emmanuelle Vaugier can be seen this year in "Stolen Child," which is currently in post-production. She's originally from Vancouver.
Born in 1978 in the small town of Bay d'Espoir, Newfoundland and Labrador, Joanne Kelly is a striking brunette who has been playing Myka Bering in several seasons of the sci-fi drama/mystery "Warehouse 13."
There's something super sexy about a girl who is both easy on the eyes and has a terrific sense of humour, and "How I Met Your Mother" star Cobie Smulders is the total package. She'll continue her reign in '12 as Robin Scherbatsky on the award-winning Neil Patrick Harris-led comedy, as well as appearing in Marvel's The Avengers.
A "90210" mainstay since the show (re)hit airwaves back in 2008, Shenae Grimes has also tried her hand at movie acting, making appearances in "Sugar" and "Scream 4." This year she continues ruling the campus as Annie Wilson.
A stunner who is a part of the coveted "Degrassi: The Next Generation" alumni, Nina Dobrev is all grown up and now works on the hit show "The Vampire Diaries."
With Filipino and Irish/Scottish roots, Shay Mitchell was born and bred in Toronto and can now be seen on the popular thriller "Pretty Little Liars" alongside Chad Lowe, Holly Marie Combs, and Ashley Benson.
Star of the hit series "The Lying Game," Vancouverite Kirsten Prout also had a successful run on "Kyle XY" for three seasons. She will be featured in the 2012 TV movie "My Super Psycho Sweet 16: Part 2."
