Hannah Gross Biography, Family and Other Facts About The Actress

Being neighbors, it is no surprise to find out that Canada and the United States are each other’s biggest trade partners. The two countries trade a lot of goods and services, as well as human capital, most notably in the entertainment world. Many Canadian entertainers like Ryan Reynolds, Carly Rae Jepsen, and Jim Carrey have been able to move south to make a name for themselves, a blueprint which Hannah Gross seems to have borrowed as she pushes to become a household name like her compatriots.

After taking sometime to make up her mind whether or not she was going to follow in the footsteps of her parents in becoming an actor, Hannah, who had spent a lot of time on set of her parents’ movies as a child, and made a number of uncredited appearances in their movies, enrolled at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
