Hannah, who also starred in Ridley Scott's 1982 science fiction classic 'Blade Runner', joined a civil disobedience action in a bid to get U.S President Barack Obama to abandon the pipeline designed to transfer crude oil from Canada to refineries on America's Gulf Coast and move towards a cleaner energy source.

The arrest happened on Wednesday morning and she has now been released from custody, The Toronto Sun reports. It was the actress' third such arrest since she started protesting the pipeline.
