Carly Pope was born on the 28th August 1980, in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada of Italian, Serbian and Irish descent. She is an actress who is probably best recognized for making significant appearances in the movies “Elysium” and “Two for the Money”, as well as in TV series such as “Popular”, “The Collector” and “Arrow”.

Early Life and Education

She has a younger brother named Alexander and an older brother named Kris, who is a reputable and prominent actor as well; he was born on the 25th May 1976 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and is probably best known for appearing in the movies “Dark Angel”, “House of the Dead”, “John Doe” and “Elegy”.

There is very little information about Carly’s childhood, but it is known that she was interested in acting from a very early age. Her talent and passion were discovered even before her primary school, as she always created and participated in numerous performances both at home and in public. After primary school, she started attending Lord Byng Secondary School which was located beside the University of British Columbia. It was there that she first got a chance to explore her talent and work on it, appearing in school plays such as “The Odd Couple”, “Midsummer Night’s” and many more. After matriculating from high school, she decided to attend the University of British Columbia, however, after one semester she realized that she needed to follow her passion and pursue a career in acting, because of which she moved to Hollywood.

Career Beginnings

The first audition she participated in didn’t go so well for her, as she was turned down for the part of Liz in the popular TV series “Roswell”. However, this small setback didn’t stop her, and immediately afterwards she landed several small roles in the movies entitled “A Girl’s Guide to Kissing and Other Nightmares in Teenland”, “I’ve Been Waiting for You” and “Our Guys: Outrage at Glen Ridge”, as well as TV series “The Wonderful World of Disney” and “Night Man”.

She was then cast in the memorable TV series “Popular” as Sam McPherson; even though she auditioned for the part of Brook McQueen, the producers didn’t see her fit for this role, but recognized her talent and wanted her to be a part of their show. This could be considered as her huge breakthrough, as she had one of the lead roles from the beginning of the series in 1999 to its end in 2001, which had a great impact on her career, as she was noticed by many producers and directors who gave her a chance to appear in numerous movies and series in the following years. She was firstly cast in Jeff Probst’s hit thriller “Finder’s Fee” alongside Ryan Reynolds and Erik Palladino, after which she landed smaller roles in the movies “The Glass House”, “Orange County” and “Various Positions”.

1I think when you're starting up a situation, it's really fun texting or BBMing or whatever.
2I do think we've become so reliant that the phones are never out of our reach. We're always trying to stay connected that way and the irony is that it's actually disconnecting us from everything else because we're not just focused on what's in front of us; we focus on what's in our hand or off to the side.
3People are totally overusing LOL and a wink - and I'm very guilty of using the wink - that's probably my favorite emoticon to use because 'I'm being sarcastic, don't misinterpret; don't misconstrue; I'm just kidding.' Again, for as many benefits as it has, also picking up the phone and having a conversation speaks volumes.
4I've kept my phone on silent for a year and a half. For me, it's too much noise. It's not my jam. I like to keep things a lot more easygoing. The world's not going to stop if you don't pick up your phone.
5I kind of see myself as a cartoon that's on its way to becoming a real person that has to find that special amulet or mushroom to get to that next realm or level. I don't feel like anything is that tangible. It freaks me out, why I feel unhappy or conflicted and why that can change on a dime. I feel very manic right now, but I'm confident where I am.
