Shawn Ashmore, best known for the "X-Men" trilogy, recently appeared in the horror film "Mother's Day," with Emma Bell in "Frozen," and the miniseries "Bloodletting & Miraculous Cures," based on the award-winning novel by Vincent Lam.

Aviation Authority shut down the skies over the US. Ashmore played the character of Mike Stiven, a young air traffic controller.

In 2008, Ashmore played the comedic role of Eric in DreamWorks' sci-fi thriller "The Ruins," which is based on Scott Smith's 2005 novel and directed by Carter Smith.

Ashmore's career took off in 1994 when he was nominated for a Gemini Award for his work as Waylon Tibbins, the starring role in the TV movie "Guitarman." When he was seventeen, he won the role of Jake on Nickelodeon's series "Animorphs," working on it for two seasons and immediately following it with the starring role of Tyler Connell on Disney Channel's "In a Heartbeat." Two days after filming the pilot for the new series, director Bryan Singer chose Ashmore to play Robert Bobby Drake/Iceman on 20th Century Fox's feature film "X-Men."

The film spawned a franchise and in 2004, Ashmore received the MTV Movie Award Breakthrough Male for reprising the role in Fox's blockbuster sequel "X2: X-Men United" directed again by Bryan Singer. Ashmore starred opposite an ensemble cast that included Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry and Anna Paquin. Ashmore's role was greatly expanded in this sequel, in which he and Anna Paquin (Rogue) became a couple with all the trials and tribulations their mutant powers cause. Then, in 2006, Ashmore reprised his role once again in the third installment of the blockbuster franchise: "X-Men: the Last Stand."

In 2005 Ashmore starred in three projects. The first was Miramax Film's "Underclassman," opposite Nick Cannon. After that, Ashmore starred in "3 Needles," alongside Stockard Channing, Lucy Liu, Sandra Oh, Chloe Sevigny and Olympia Dukakis. An indie feature for writer-director Thom Fitzgerald, the film is about the AIDS pandemic that plays out in China, South Africa and North America. Ashmore then played the title role of Terry in an original TV movie of the same name that aired on CTV (Canadian Television). "Terry" documents the heroic life of Terry Fox, who after losing his leg to cancer ran entirely unassisted across Canada in 1980 in what was called the Marathon of Hope to raise money and awareness for the disease.

Ashmore also appeared in the leading role on "Earthsea," a fantasy drama for the Sci Fi Channel in the fall of 2004, starring alongside Isabella Rossellini, Danny Glover and Kristin Kruek. That same year he guest starred in the hugely popular WB series, "Smallville" in one of the most widely watched episodes that season.
