Joshua Carter Jackson is a Canadian-American actor who was born on June 11, 1978. He is popularly recognized as Charlie Conway in Mighty Ducks, Pacey Witter in Dawson’s Creek (1998–2003), Peter Bishop in Fringe (2008–2013), Cole Lockhart in The Affair in (2014–2018) series, Mickey Joseph in the movie When They See Us (2019), Bill Richardson in the movie Little Fires Everywhere (2020), and Dr. Christopher Duntsch in the movie Dr. Death (2021).
The Mighty Ducks movie series (1992–1996), Cruel Intentions (1999), The Skulls (2000), and Shutter Island (2000) are among Jackson’s most well-known works (2008). Jackson was awarded the Genie Award for Best Presentation by an Actor in a Prominent Role for his role in the Canadian indie film One Week (2008).
Jackson began his acting career in 1991 with a modest role in the film Crooked Hearts. The next year, he starred as Charlie in a musical adaptation of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. He joined the William Morris Agency at this point, with the aid of the play’s casting director, Laura Kennedy. He was cast as Charlie in The Mighty Ducks series shortly after, playing a young and ambitious hockey player.
His ability to play bold yet endearing characters showed out when he was cast as Pacey Witter in the coming-of-age television drama Dawson’s Creek in 1998. Cruel Intentions (1999) and The Skulls (2000) were notable feature film appearances during this time period, as were ambitious but smaller-budget films like Apt Pupil (1998) and The Laramie Project (2002).
Joshua Jackson debuted in the romantic comedy genre in 2005, barely two years after Dawson’s Creek completed its successful run on television, with starring parts in the indie films Americano, Aurora Borealis, and The Shadow Dancer. He also had a supporting part in Bobby (2006), a political farce for which he was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for his performance with the ensemble cast. Jackson had his prolonged West End debut in David Mamet’s two-man play A Life in the Theatrical, a backstage comedy about petulant theatre artists, in the United Kingdom.
Joshua Jackson reappeared to episodic television in 2008 with a lead part in the sci-fi/ fantasy Fringe as the incredibly resourceful semi-genius Peter Bishop, and then went to Canada to executive-produce and appear in the existential road movie One Week. In the comedy Lay the Favourite, he co-starred alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bruce Williams (2012).
Inescapable, directed by Ruba Nadda, premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival. Following his daughter’s incarceration in Syria, Jackson portrayed consular official Paul, a Canadian bureaucratic apple-polisher who supports an Arab-Canadian parent with extradition demands. When Paul trades his comfortable lifestyle for a risky voyage to the heart of the Middle East, his buried demons surface, and Jackson’s portrayal of an unconventional character receives widespread recognition.
Jackson won the 2009 Genie Award for Best Actor for his role as a young guy with just one week to live in the film One Week.
