Joshua Jackson

Joshua Jackson is currently shooting the lead role in J.J. Abrams' sci-fi television show Fringe, which will premiere on FOX this year. He recently completed shooting the independent Canadian feature film One Week.

Jackson enjoyed a successful run on London's West End starring in A Life In The Theatre alongside Patrick Stewart. The acclaimed comedy was written by David Mamet. Additionally, he starred in Regent Films' Aurora Borealis, as a troubled young man opposite Donald Sutherland and Juliette Lewis.

Well known as Dawson's Creek's fast-talking, self-deprecating Pacey Witter, Jackson has been working in front of the camera for over fifteen years. His first feature film was Michael Bortman's Crooked Hearts, which was quickly followed by the Mighty Ducks trilogy, Digger and Andre the Seal. In 2000, Jackson starred in Universal Pictures' The Skulls, and more recently in Rose Troche's acclaimed drama The Safety of Objects, the HBO Films version of Moises Kaufman's groundbreaking play The Laramie Project. He had noted cameos in Steven Soderbergh's Ocean's 11, Scream 2, Urban Legend, and I Love Your Work. His additional feature film credits include Cursed, Gossip, Bryan Singer's Apt Pupil and Cruel Intentions.

Jackson, a Vancouver native, divides his time between his hometown and Los Angeles.
