Canadian actor Joshua Jackson celebrates his 34 birthday today and we can’t help but think back to the first time we fell in love with him on screen.
Joshua Jackson is probably known to most as Pacey Witter, the charming, bad boy on Dawson’s Creek who eventually came to steal Katie Holmes’ heart. This Canadian actor had some earlier starring roles when he slipped on the skates for Canada’s favourite pastime in The Mighty Ducks movies.
Joshua Jackson has definitely come a long way from those early roles as he has since battled a sci-fi world in the acclaimed series Fringe and bared his heart in the indie flick One Week. We can’t wait to see where Hollywood takes this Canadian actor next.
Joshua Jackson is in good company when it comes to Canadian stars who started out their acting careers in the great white north. Here are some other Canadian born stars we watched bloom from child stars to talented actors.
