When fiery-haired Canadian actress Rachelle Lefevre discovered her love of acting, she made a point of learning about her chosen craft. She studied at McGill University, as well as at Dawson College, both near her family home in Quebec, Canada, and additionally traveled to Walnut Hill School in Massachusetts to study theater. Eventually, while working at a sushi restaurant in Montreal, Lefevre got a tip about an upcoming audition for a television series, eventually leading to a number of roles on Canadian TV. The actress traveled south to appear in Hollywood films like Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and on TV series like Charmed, Boston Legal, and Life on Mars. It wouldn't be until 2008, however, that she experienced a major jolt of fame, as she took on the role of the gorgeous and malicious vampire Victoria in the highly anticipated film adaptation of the young adult novel Twilight. Television roles in Off the Map and A Gifted Man followed.
