“It is a great honour to present the first Birks Canadian Diamond to two young and successful Canadian actresses, Sarah Gadon and Emily Hampshire, who have both made their mark on the film industry with exceptional acting performances. Today their achievements bring them to the Cannes Film Festival as they both star in films selected by the Festival,” says Jean-Christophe Bedos, President and CEO of Birks. “Sarah and Emily’s talent can now be celebrated not only across Canada but around the planet.
