The son of a casting agent, Joshua Jackson begged his mother to send him out on auditions at the age of nine and soon after booked a tourism commercial. He made his feature debut in "Crooked Hearts" (1991), a film cast by his mom, but his big break came when he landed the plum part of Charlie, the coach's prodigy, in "The Mighty Ducks" (1992), a role he would reprise for two sequels. Since then he has acted frequently on the big screen in movies like George ("The Man From Snowy River") Miller's "Andre" and Rick Stevenson's "The Magic in the Water" (1995), in which he played Mark Harmon's son. On TV, the good-looking brown-haired actor found success as Pacey, the charming sidekick to Dawson Leery on the hit series "Dawson's Creek".
