  Summary  

Shawn Robert Ashmore is a Canadian film and television actor, perhaps best known for his role as Jake in the Animorphs television series and Iceman in the X-Men films. He is the twin brother of actor Aaron Ashmore.

  Biography  

 early life
Ashmore was born in Richmond, British Columbia, the son of Linda, a homemaker, and Rick Ashmore, a manufacturing engineer. He was raised in Brampton, Ontario, where he attended Turner Fenton Secondary School, and Earnscliffe Senior Public School. His 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 and, according to Aaron, Shawn often gets cast as the nice guy while Aaron himself is cast as the bully.

 career
One of Ashmore's major roles was 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 reprised his role as Iceman in the animated series The Super Hero Squad Show.

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 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 a Magus and falls in love with Tenar , the protege of the High Priestess of the Tombs of Atuan . In 2005, Ashmore starred in a CTV TV movie about Terry Fox's historic run across Canada, which aired in September of that year. In 2008, he starred as one of the leads in the 2008 horror film The Ruins. Ashmore was cast in Adam Green's 2010 dramatic thriller Frozen as Joe Lynch.

Ashmore will also star in an upcoming apocalyptic siege warfare film The Day with Dominic Monaghan and Michael Eklund.
