Happy Canada Day! TV's Sexiest Canadians

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 1st 2011 9:00AM
When you think of Canada, what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Hockey, poutine, lumberjacks, Celine Dion or these attractive people:

Nina Dobrev, Taylor Kitsch
Contrary to popular belief, Canadians can be sexy. REALLY sexy. Case in point: the vampiness of Nina Dobrev in her dual roles on 'The Vampire Diaries'; the long-but-not-too-long hair and aloof-but-still-caring nature of Taylor Kitsch's Tim Riggins on 'Friday Night Lights;' the everything of Nathan Fillion on 'Castle.'

In hono(u)r of Canada Day (and in honor of posting pictures of hot actors on our site), check out AOL TV's list of the sexiest Canadians on TV. It's a holiday weekend, you're not doing any real work anyway ...

Taylor KitschTaylor Kitsch
The impossible beauty of Taylor Kitsch transcends all nationalities. The actor was born in British Columbia, but plays all-American football star Tim Riggins on 'Friday Night Lights.' Oh Canada! Texas forever! We're so conflicted.
Nina DobrevNina Dobrev
On 'The Vampire Diaries,' Nina has not one but two incredibly attractive vampire brothers fighting for her attention. Understandable, since the former 'Degrassi'-ite plays both a hot high-schooler and a hot, slightly evil vampire.

Joshua JacksonJoshua Jackson
We know he stars on the exciting, complex sci-fi hit 'Fringe,' but some part of him will always be Pacey Witter, the bad boy who stole Joey Potter from Dawson on 'Dawson's Creek.' Either way, he's still incredibly sexy.

Anna PaquinAnna Paquin
The 'True Blood' star won an Oscar at age 10 for her role as Holly Hunter's daughter in 'The Piano.' Now she has a bevy of supernatural beasts trying to hook up with her (and is married to one of them in real life). A hard life this woman leads.

Nathan FillionNathan Fillion
This modern sci-fi icon and current 'Castle' star embraces all things geek, boasts a strapping physique and has a killer sense of humor. Swoon.

Pamela AndersonPamela Anderson
Sure, Pam doesn't exactly have a TV show on the air right now, but how could we leave off one of the medium's all-time iconic hotties? The wonders she did for one-piece red swimsuits and slow-mo beach running ...

Cory MonteithCory Monteith
'Glee''s football-playing, glee club-singing big man on campus made his way to Lima, Ohio via the Great White North. And even if his character Finn isn't also a Canuck, he shares Cory's adorable boyish charm.

Cobie SmuldersCobie Smulders
Many of 'How I Met Your Mother''s running jokes are related to the fact that Cobie's character, Robin, is Canadian, just like the actress herself. (See: the entire 'Duel Citizenship' episode of Season 5; every Alan Thicke-related joke/guest appearance.) But the best one by far is Robin's secret past as mid-'90s Canadian pop star Robin Sparkles. Let's go to the mall, everybody!

Ryan GoslingRyan Gosling
Yep, this is definitely cheating, considering Ryan hasn't had a series regular TV role since his stints on the teen shows 'Breaker High' and 'Young Hercules' in the late '90s, but a list of sexiest Canadians seems incomplete without one of Hollywood's hottest and most talented young actors.

Tricia HelferTricia Helfer
It's hard to picture Helfer as anything but sexy Cylon Number Six, considering she owned that 'Battlestar Galactica' role. If we told you that this long-legged bombshell grew up in small-town Alberta (read: really small-town) and was scouted in a movie theater line, would you believe us? You'd better, because it's true, eh.

Will ArnettWill Arnett
"Sexy" might not be one of the words that comes to mind when describing the man who played the ultra-douchey (but oh-so-lovable) Gob Bluth on 'Arrested Development,' but it would most certainly be the first word that came to Gob's mind to describe himself.

Elisha CuthbertElisha Cuthbert
The actress handled drama as Jack Bauer's daughter on the action-packed '24,' and now she's perfecting her comedy skills as runaway bride Alex on the ABC sitcom 'Happy Endings.'

Two words: Stana. Katic. Hello!? How did Nathan's co-star on Castle get left off this list? She's drop-dead gorgeous (pun INTENDED since she plays a homicide detective), speaks at least 4 languages fluently, is socially conscious since she and another co-star Seamus Dever launched a website to encourage fans to use alternative means to get to work besides a car, sings, dances, does drama as well as comedy, and (for those of you who like violence) knows a few ways to kill someone. What's not to like?
