Forbes has released its annual 30 Under 30 lists, one of which honours young adults who are “changing Hollywood.” This year, three Canadians landed a spot on the coveted catalogue – television star Tatiana Maslany, actress Ellen Page and Epic Meal Time creator Harley Morenstein.
Tatiana, 29, has earned accolades for playing an astonishing eight different characters (with several different accents) on the Canadian sci-fi series Orphan Black.
Halifax-native Ellen, 27, was selected because she “bravely took a stand” by publicly coming out as a gay woman during a conference last February. Since then, the Oscar-nominated actress has graced countless magazine covers, including W and Flare.
Lastly, Montreal-born Harley, 29, is responsible for “creating one of the most popular online shows," boasting more than 6.6 million followers on his YouTube channel, Epic Meal Time.

Topping the list overall this year was 27-year-old Blake Lively, who just welcomed her first child with her Canadian husband, Ryan Reynolds. The popular actress launched her lifestyle e-commerce site, Preserve, last summer.
The new mom reacted humbly to the news, saying, “ I’ll never feel like I arrived. The people I look up to the most are the people that are continuing to up their game.”
