Peter Knegt of IndieWire has compiled a list of ten actors to watch at Cannes, and Sarah Gadon who co-stars with Robert Pattinson in Cosmopolis, has caught his eye. As you can see in his introduction, Knegt is highlighting actors who aren’t known names to many yet, which may change after being seen at Cannes.

One of the single greatest opportunities for an actor to break out on the world cinema stage, the Cannes Film Festival, has helped launch countless careers. So as the 65th edition of the festival gets underway, who might be this year’s Jean Dujardin? There’s perhaps more potential breakouts this year than ever, with many relative unknowns leading highly anticipated films. So in the midst of Tiger Beat-friendly presence of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Zac Efron, Indiewire is offering a list of 10 actors that could potentially upstage those we’re all too aware of. You might not know their names now, but that could easily change in the next 11 days.
Why You May Know Her: The 25-year-old Canadian actress has been acting since she was 10, mostly on Canadian television. But last year people outside her native country took considerable notice with her work in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” where she played Emma Jung opposite Michael Fassbender’s Carl Jung.
What Cannes Could Mean For Her: The Cronenberg family seems determined to see Gadon break out at Cannes this year, with both David and his son Brandon bringing films to the fest starring the actress. In Cronenberg Sr.’s “Cosmopolis,” she plays the wife of Robert Pattinson’s billionaire lead character, while Brandon gives her a more primary role as a superstar infected by a virus.
What’s Next? She’ll be in Denis Villeneuve’s “An Enemy” — his follow-up to “Incendies,” which co-stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Melanie Laurent and Isabella Rossellini. Shooting starts on May 22.
