About the Show

L.M. Montgomery's "Anne of Green Gables" tells the story of Anne Shirley, a precocious young girl taken from an orphanage and placed in the care of the uptight Marilla Cuthbert and her brother, Matthew. The conservative Marilla has a profound effect on the adventurous Anne and creates a journey of learning and personal engagement that has resonated with generations since L.M. Montgomery’s "Anne of Green Gables" was first published in 1908.

Directed by John Kent Harrison, and based on the original script by Susan Coyne, this adaptation, filmed in Canada, stars critically-acclaimed actor, Martin Sheen. Sheen, who has appeared in blockbuster films such as "The Amazing Spider Man" and "The Amazing Spider Man 2," and played the President of the United States in the multi-Emmy winning series "The West Wing," portrays Matthew Cuthbert, one half of the brother-sister couple who cares for Anne Shirley.

Additional cast members of Anne of Green Gables include 14-year-old Ella Ballentine ("The Captive") as Anne Shirley, Sara Botsford ("E.N.G.") as Marilla Cuthbert, Julia Lalonde ("Catch a Christmas Star") as Diana Barry, Kate Hennig ("Thirty Two Short Films About Glenn Gould") as Rachel Lynde, Stefani Kimber ("Remember") as Josie Pye, Drew Haytaoglu ("Looks Just Like the Sun") as Gilbert Blythe, Kyle Gatehouse ("Source Code") as Mr. Phillips, and Linda Kash ("Cinderella Man") as Mrs. Barry.
