Fortunately, her parents fully supported her and let Rachel joined the Original Kids Theater in her hometown. She acted in local productions through high school and went on to study theater at York University in Toronto.

While studying at York, she was able to make her first TV appearance in an MTV drama called “Shotgun” where she played the role of Beth Swanson. In the same year, she made her debut in a comedy movie “My Name Is Tatino” which came out in 2002. She then moved to Los Angeles and was quickly cast as a lead alongside Rob Schneider in the comedy film “The Hot Chick”.

In 2004, Rachel’s breakout role came when she got the role of Regina George, a popular high school student in the film “Mean Girls”. She appeared with co-stars Lindsay Lohan and Amanda Seyfried. Not long after that, Rachel had another breakout role in the romantic drama film “The Notebook”. She has demonstrated her versatility which caught the public’s eyes earning her two MTV Movie Awards in 2005 – breakthrough female for “Mean Girls” and best kiss for “The Notebook”.

The talented actress’ versatility can also be seen in her gorgeous tresses. With various roles come various hairstyles. She’s fearless when it comes to hair colors.
