March 13, 2014

Megan Follows

For nine seasons in the '90s and 2000s, The X-Files, a sci-fi show on Fox, captivated a cult audience with stories about a pair of FBI special agents investigating the paranormal. And because it was filmed in Vancouver, the show serves as something of a compendium of up-and-coming Canadian actors from the 1990s. Turns out that's a pretty long list of people — and looking back from 2014, many of them are a little bit unexpected. Brent Butt of Corner Gas, for example. And Megan Follows, George's guest in the red chair tonight. In the gallery above, we've put together eight Canadian actors made appearances on the show.

And to catch George's interview with Megan Follows, tune into CBC TV at 7 p.m. on March 14.
