Joshua Jackson Biography

Birthdate: June 11, 1978

Candian Kid, Joshua Jackson

Joshua Jackson grew up in Vancouver, Canada and was... well, a troublemaker. Jackson got expelled from two different high schools before finishing his diploma through correspondence with Kitsilano Secondary School. Dying for a chance to show-off his wit and smart-mouth, Joshua Jackson begged his casting director mother to send him out on auditions when he was only nine. A short time later, Joshua Jackson landed the big role of Charlie in the Mighty Ducks movie series - and the rest is history.

Joshua Jackson Lands Dawson's Creek

At the age of 18 Joshua Jackson was ticked off that his career seemed to be going nowhere. A friend of Joshua Jackson's introduced him to screenwriter, Kevin Williamson. Williamson was in the process of casting a semi-autobigraphical TV show about four friends called Dawson's Creek. Joshua Jackson auditioned for the role of Dawson but luckily, Joshua Jackson was cast as Pacey Witter instead and a very cool character was born.

Joshua Jackson, Movie Star

On top of Dawson and the Ducks, Joshua Jackson's had small parts in movies like Scream 2, Cruel Intentions, Gossip and scored a starring role in The Skulls. Oh yeah, and Joshua Jackson has also managed to get the girl - on several occasions. He has dated co-stars Brittany Daniel (played Eve on Dawson's Creek) and Katie Holmes, AKA Joey. Looks like reality and fantasy are blurred on this one.
