With the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) officially underway, Hello! is putting the spotlight on emerging young talent with our list of Top 25 New Stars.
No doubt you may already recognize some of the buzzy “new” names – like bohemian beauty Shailene Woodley, who starred in two huge films this year (Divergent and The Fault in Our Stars), or blond Brit Alice Eve, who turned heads in She’s Out of My League and Star Trek: Into Darkness.

Still, other freshly minted faces are proudly representing Canada on the film front. Director Xavier Dolan, 25, debuts his new family drama 'Mommy' next week at TIFF, while Montreal-born actor Alexandre Landry was chosen as one of the festival's official Rising Stars this year, an honour previously bestowed upon heavy-hitters like Tatiana Maslany and Sarah Gadon (who also made our list!).
Sarah, who has been attending TIFF since she was 16 years old, tells Hello!, "I think Canadians are some of the most kind, open minded, wonderful, thoughtful people in the world. Anytime I’m travelling and people say, 'I love Canadians,' it makes me so proud." (We couldn't agree more!)
As Hello! celebrates Hollywood's new era of cinema – and an onslaught of fresh talent – check out our list of Top 25 New Stars below.
