Early life

Ashmore was born in Richmond, British Columbia, the son of Linda, a homemaker, and Rick Ashmore, a manufacturing engineer.[1] He attended Turner Fenton Secondary School. His identical twin brother, Aaron Ashmore, is also an actor. Aaron and Shawn have played twins in several movies, but have also pursued roles independently. Aaron is slightly taller than Shawn in addition to being more muscular and, according to Aaron, Shawn often gets cast as the nice guy while Aaron himself is cast as the bully.

[edit] Career

Ashmore's most famous role may be as Iceman in X-Men and its sequels X2 and X-Men: The Last Stand. While many of the minor characters were portrayed by different actors, Ashmore was kept for all the movies since his character was major in the first movie, unlike Shadowcat who had minor screen time in the first and second films.

Ashmore starred as Cadet Major Brad Rigby in Cadet Kelly, a Disney Channel original film which aired in 2002 and he also guest-starred as Eric Summers in two episodes of Smallville, a series on which his brother later got the role of Jimmy Olsen. Ashmore also had starring roles on Animorphs as Jake Berenson and In a Heartbeat as Tyler Connell.

In December of 2004, Ashmore was cast in the lead role in the SciFi Channel mini series Legend of Earthsea, based on the novels by Ursula K. Le Guin. He played the role of Ged, a young wizard-in-training, who takes advice from Ogion (Danny Glover) and falls in love with Tenar (Kristin Kreuk), the protege of the High Priestess of the Tombs of Atuan (Isabella Rossellini). In 2005 Ashmore starred in a CTV TV movie about Terry Fox's historic run across Canada, which aired in September of that year. His most recent project was starring as one of the leads in the 2008 horror film The Ruins.
