Ryan Gosling's first-ever interview has been dug out of the vault and aired on a Canadian breakfast TV show.

The Hollywood hunk was interviewed on Canada AM when he was just 12, talking about getting his big break as a Disney Mouseketeer. Ryan was a presenter on the Disney channel alongside Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera.

Canada AM also revealed footage of a young Aubrey Graham, aka rapper Drake, talking to the morning show about landing the role of Jimmy on high school TV drama Degrassim, and an interview with a 20-year-old Shania Twain who was just breaking into music.

Fox News Channel senior reporter John Roberts, a former co-anchor of Canada AM, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary, looked back on all the local talent featured on the show, who went on to become global stars, such as Bryan Adams, Alanis Morissette, Celine Dion and Avril Lavigne.

And Canada AM executive producer Lis Travers revealed her favourite guest was Canadian crooner Michael Buble.

She said: "Even after his CDs topped all the charts, he always took time to meet, greet, take photos, sign autographs with everyone in the audience."
