Famous People from Langley

Langley isn’t one of the biggest cities in British Columbia, but it’s home to some of the biggest names to come out of our province in sports, music, and television. Did you know some of these famous people from Langley grew up right in your backyard?

Brett Lawrie

Born in Langley in 1990, Lawrie has grown from a hometown hero playing for the Langley Blaze all the way to one of the highest-drafted Canadian MLB players at #16. He took the league by storm, getting a hit in his first major league at-bat and knocking in a run, too! Since then, he has gone on to play for three different teams, hit walk-off home runs, and make British Columbia proud. He’s even represented our country on the international stage.

Amanda Crew

Amanda got her first acting job while she was just in elementary school, and since that first “big break”, she’s gone on to star in film and television hits. She’s best known as playing Monica Hall, the personable and approachable secretary on HBO’s, award-winning series, Silicon Valley. Aside from her world-famous role on the HBO hit, she’s also starred in CTV dramas, made cameos in hit television series, and has even played a starring role in a hysterical teen comedy.

Tom Thacker

Tom is a bit of a local music hero in Langley. He’s the lead singer and guitar player of the Canadian punk band, Gob, but is best known as a member of the chart-topping Canadian band, Sum 41. After starting as a touring guitar player and occasional keyboardist, he was announced as a full-time member back in 2009. His musical prowess spans multiple instruments, and he’s been a legend of the Canadian punk scene since he first started strumming. He’s even appeared as a drummer on multiple studio albums for Canadian bands.

Despite the relatively small population, this city has produced some big names both locally and internationally. These are just a few of the famous people from Langley. Another famous local name is Diamond Clean, though we are renowned for our house cleaning services, not professional entertainment!

“Just wanted to tell you how impressed my wife and I are with your work. The only way to make these windows any more transparent is to remove them.”

-JJ, Surrey

“I recommend Diamond Clean to anyone, they cleaned our townhouse windows. I’ve never seen anybody more dedicated to their work. Thanks guys.”


“I liked the way they vacuumed the gutters, they did a very tidy job and didn’t leave a mess. I have had bad experiences with previous cleaners leaving a big mess in my yard and leaving it for me to clean up. I will certainly use Diamond Clean again and would highly recommend them.”


“I was so impressed by Mike’s professionalism and courtesy. He is very meticulous with his work. Not only did he do a great job on my windows, he went above and beyond and repaired my soffet.”


“…their friendly service and thorough workmanship went beyond my expectations…”


“We are a four-unit strata in Southeast Vancouver that hired Diamond Clean this spring to hand clean all units’ siding. They called when traffic (from Surrey) was backed up and arrived within 15 minutes of when they said they would. All owners were really happy with the job they did. Finding anyone who hand cleans siding is a huge research project… that fact they even do it says a lot about their expertise (Shell Busey insists that hand washing — as opposed to pressure washing – is the only right way). Most companies I contacted or reviewed did not hand wash siding and tried to convince me that power washing was okay. These guys get siding. I’ve don’t have much else to add… they were professional, friendly, efficient, responsive, and cost effective. Overall a great experience and we’ll be using them again in future, which I think says it all.”
