Rachel and her sister Kayleen Mcadams appeared on TLC’s Who Do You Think You Are? earlier this month. We finally managed to add the full episode in our media archive. We have split it in multiple parts. The episode is still available On Demand on Amazon.com or Itunes and on TLC.com. We have also added the official recap of the episode in our gallery.
Official Description: Rachel and Kayleen McAdams discover an English ancestor surrounded by a privileged world, but forced to separate from those he loved; they uncover the harrowing circumstances behind their Canadian roots.
Entertainment Tonight Canada’s host Cheryl Hickey challenged Rachel to do the #ALSIceBucketChallenge earlier this week. Rachel’s friend and actress Zoie Palmer – you might remember her from the adorable joint interview she did with Rachel for ET Canada – shared the video of Rachel accepting the challenge via her official twitter account @zoiepalmer. Rachel challenged Zoie Palmer, who is also in the video accepting the challenge, and her dad Lance McAdams, her sister Kayleen McAdams and Canadian writer Margaret Atwood.
You have probably heard about the challenge by now since it’s taking (social) media by storm but for more information about the challenge and find out how to donate be sure to head over to alsa.org

TLC released the first trailer for the upcoming season of Who Do You Think You Are? The genealogy docu-series announced earlier this month that Rachel and her sister Kayleen will be part of the fifth season of the series. We have added the first trailer in media archive and screen captures can be found in our gallery.
The series will return July 23rd but it has not yet been announced when Rachel and Kayleen’s episode will air.
The Wrap is reporting that Rachel and her sister (and make-up artist) Kayleen will be featured in season five (second season at TLC) of “Who Do You Think You Are?“. As we reported on our official twitter account Rachel was spotted filming in Plymouth (UK) a few weeks ago for a series about “her ancestry” but now we officially have confirmation. BBC originally aired the genealogy documentary series in the UK and the American version was adapted by NBC before moving to TLC last year. It has not yet been announced when the episode with Rachel and Kayleen is going to air but the series premiere is July 23 at 9/8c.
The second season of TLC’s genealogy docu-series “Who Do You Think You Are?” will feature six new journeys with Valerie Bertinelli, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Lauren Graham, Kelsey Grammer, Cynthia Nixon, Rachel McAdams and her sister, Kayleen McAdams.
Also, TLC has acquired 10 episodes from the show’s previous seasons on NBC. The episodes feature Matthew Broderick, Lisa Kudrow, Rob Lowe, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Jessica Parker, Brooke Shields, Vanessa Williams and Rita Wilson.
The show returns for its second season on TLC and its fifth season overall on Wednesday, July 23 at 9/8c.
