1Lord of the Rings is a good thing for us because it opened the door for the genre in general. Le Guin's stories are very different from Lord of the Rings.
2Playing a character who's dealing not only with a superpower but having a normal relationship is easy to associate with, because I feel that everyone has been through it.
3So it wasn't actually that bad, it took a couple of weeks to sort of get used to uh, you know, standing around and pretending to have ice shoot out of your hand, but once you got used to that it uh, it was actually not that hard.
4Some people talk about screen kisses being strange or uncomfortable. But I think that I got along with Anna well enough that it just happened; it was a fun day of shooting.
5Ultimately, I think it's just going to get you that exposure, get you in that door, get you that recognition that will hopefully get you opportunities.
6I'm 25, so I've already gone through what my character Ged goes through, though it's on a general scale because I haven't studied at a wizard's school.
7I think it is important that you care about the characters, and you are not just waiting for the next action sequence but have a vested interested in what happens to them.
8You get bored if you do the same thing too much.
9I never could have planned this, and now I'm in my ideal situation career-wise and just sort of where I am in my life, and I'm super happy with how everything's going.
10I just got Kill Bill: Vol. 2. I've watched it like eight times in the past two months. I just love the scene at the end between David Carradine and Uma Thurman.
11The real excitement and big deal for me started when I got cast in the first X-Men, which was sort of a fluke.
12The genre of fantasy is about magic and occult characters.
13I think it's more fun to play a hero with an edge.
14Why would people spend good money to have my pants?
15Instead of being on teams at school, I was preparing for auditions.
16I read the comics long before I was ever involved with the films.
17Comic books and The Chronicles of Narnia. My mother used to read those to me and my twin brother growing up.
18Being a villain is great, even though I've only gotten to do it a few times.
19Getting to play superheroes is a pretty good job.
20I think Ian McKellen made it all happen, because he used to throw dinner parties and invite everyone over.
21I would love to be able to pursue music as a career but honestly, I'm just not good enough.
22Above and beyond having the social life, to have a core group of people that you work with and spend time with and learn how to work with is a nice thing.
23No designer has really wowed me yet, I'm into other people's recommendations when it comes to fashion.
24I'm a video game buff.
25As a teenager at high school, I felt like an outsider.
26Style is a reflection of your attitude and your personality.
27There are rumors, rumors, rumors. I'm always the last one to know about these things, literally.
28Every day on set, there was something to watch and learn.
29My power is the ability to control water molecules and form them into ice.
30Our first scene is sort of a reunion between the X-Men characters, which establishes everyone's relationship to one another, sort of like a recap for all those who have forgotten since the last movie.
31It doesn't get more iconic than Terry Fox.
32My brother and I have been in auditions where they said to our agents, "We like them both, so we're just going to flip a coin."
1He was considered for the role of Jimmy Olsen in Superman Returns (2006) before Sam Huntington. His identical twin brother Aaron Ashmore would later play the same character in Smallville (2001).
2Finished filming X-Men 3, due to be released 2006. [December 2005]
3Shawn is sharing an apartment with his brother Aaron in Los Angeles. [May 2003]
4Is good friends with actor Kevin Zegers.
5Shawn Ashmore made two guest appearances on "Smallville" playing an adversary of Clark Kent. Shawn's real-life twin brother Aaron Ashmore later appeared on "Smallville" as Jimmy Olson.
6Taught Aaron Stanford the lighter tricks he used in X2 (2003).
7Stayed in contact with co-star Anna Paquin (Rogue) after filming X2 (2003).
8Has the letters 'GMA' tattooed on his right wrist. The letters stand for 'Good Man Ashmore', in dedication for his grandfather. His twin brother also has the same tattoo on his left wrist.
9For the 2005 TV movie Terry (2005), Shawn's prosthetic leg was digitally added in. However, for long-distance shots, Grant Darby (a leg amputee and a world triathlon champion) was used as a double.
10His X-Men character, Bobby Drake/Iceman, was the first character from the comic series to make an appearance in another medium, as one of the main characters on Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. His character, and Ray Park's character of Toad, have both appeared in animated adaptations of the comics. In both, their characters were voiced by Frank Welker.
11Attended the 2004 MTV Movie awards with actress Michelle Trachtenberg.
12Landed a role as his brother's twin in the movie My Brother's Keeper (2004) due to come out in Spring 2004.
13Reunited with actor Eugene Lipinski (Del McAllister in Guitarman (1994)) after 4 years for the hit television series Animorphs (1998).
14When filming Animorphs (1998) he had to pet a tiger. During one scene, the tiger jerked its head and Shawn's fingers went up its nose. Luckily, the tiger's trainer helped him escape injury.
15Attended Turner Fenton High School in Brampton, Ontario.
16For X2 (2003), he had to undergo physical training for 6 months with no alcohol consumption and a strict diet.
17For his made-for-television movie, Cadet Kelly (2002), he had to attend military school for 3 months, also taking voice lessons to be able to project as a cadet major.
18Is twin brother of Aaron Ashmore.
