Biography

Canadian-born actor Shawn Ashmore first came to the attention of American audiences with a fan-favorite supporting role in a popular comic book franchise before going on to leading roles in a series of smaller genre films. After earning acclaim in the Canadian musical biopic "Guitarman" (1994), the teen actor made the jump to the States with appearances on several television series. Ashmore's big break came when director Bryan Singer cast him as Bobby Drake, the cold-controlling mutant known as "Iceman" and the romantic interest of young Rogue (Anna Paquin) in the superhero adventure "X-Men" (2000). The young actor cashed in on his youth appeal with more roles in several teen-themed TV movies, as well as with increased screen time in the sequels "X2" (2003) and "X-Men: The Last Stand" (2006). Post "X-Men" work frequently found the young star fighting for his life in smaller-budgeted genre efforts like the Mayan temple horror movie "The Ruins" (2008) and the mountaintop survival thriller "Frozen" (2010). Exuding a boyish charm and genuine sincerity, Ashmore consistently proved to be an easily relatable addition to any young cast.
