10 Canadian movie/TV characters played by Canadian artists & producers
Everyone knows about Drake’s acting history as the character Jimmy Brooks on Degrassi: The Next Generation, but we wanted to show love to some other TV and movie characters played by Canadian artists and producers.

We compiled a list of 10 of our favourite TV and movie characters played by Canadian artists and producers.
