Jensen Ackles has done everything from modeling to soap operas. Find out what this chiseled Texan is up to these days with Kidzworld's bio!

Jensen Ackles - A Star is Born

Jensen started his modeling career at the very young age of two. For a couple years his face was seen in several commercials, but when he was four, he took a bit of a break from the spotlight. Jensen jumped back into the entertainment industry when he was in junior high, but things didn't really take off for him until he graduated high school.

Jensen Ackles - These Are the Days of Our Lives

When Jensen graduated high school in Texas, he decided to move out to LA and try his luck with acting. When he was just 19 years old, Jensen landed his first big role as Eric Brady of the soap opera Days of Our Lives. Eric was Sammy Brady's twin brother who had been living in Colorado with his grandparents before coming back to Salem. This role earned Jensen three Daytime Emmy nominations from 1998-2000. But, by the end of 2000 he was ready to move on to bigger and better things.

Jensen Ackles - Twilight Zone

After playing a hunky heartthrob, Jensen Ackles was ready to try something new. His first role after Days of Our Lives was playing a genetically-altered superhuman on the James Cameron drama, Dark Angel. His character, Alec - along with co-star Jessica Alba's character, Max - had been created by scientists in a top-secret facility in post-nuclear Seattle. Despite the show's unique premise, it only lasted two seasons, forcing Jensen to look for work once again.

Jensen Ackles - Look Out Primetime!

Dark Angel may have been short-lived, but Jensen wasn't out of commission for very long. In the fall of 2002, he landed the role of Jen Lindley's love interest, C.J., on FOX's hit drama Dawson's Creek. When that role wrapped up, Jensen moved to the Smallville set to play the part of Lana Lang's BF, Jason Teague. After years of playing second string to other actors, Jensen has finally landed a lead role in a new sitcom called Supernatural. Jensen plays opposite Jared Padelecki in this paranormal show about two brothers looking to solve their mother's death and father's disappearance. You can catch Jensen in Supernatural on The WB, Tuesdays at 9PM.
