Joshua Jackson Net Worth $22 Million

Joshua spent his early years in California. When he was eight years the family moved to Seattle, but following his parents’ divorce Joshua moved back to Vancouver with his mother and younger sister. Jackson’s mother was a casting director, and therefore it is no surprise that young Joshua turned to acting. He started with several roles in commercials before he moved to television, though it took a while until he managed to secure his first memorable role. In 1991 he appeared as a minor character in a film “Crooked Hearts”. A year later Joshua Jackson starred in the musical “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. Therefore, at such young age Joshua Jackson was already accumulating his net worth.

This latter role got Joshua Jackson a contract with the William Morris Agency. Soon he got the part of Charlie, as aspiring hockey player, in “The Mighty Ducks” and its two sequels. Joshua’s appearance in these films is considered to be a big breakthrough in his career. In 1997 he also appeared in a popular teen horror movie “Scream2”, but it was the TV show “Dawson’s Creek” that made Joshua Jackson a real star as well as a millionaire. Jackson appeared in this show from 1998 to 2003 along with James Van Der Beek, Michelle Williams and Katie Holmes. Joshua portrayed Pacey Whitter, a love interest of Katie Holmes’s character. Thanks to his appearance in this show, in 1999 Jackson was included in Teen People’s list of “21 Hottest Stars Under 21” and received several Teen Choice awards.

Joshua Jackson success did not end with “Dawson’s Creek”. He has made appearances in movies and TV shows including “Cruel Intensions”, “The Skulls”, “Aurora Borealis”, “The Safety of Objects”, the remake of “Ocean’s 11” and an episode of “The Simpsons”. Jackson’s most notable recent achievement is a lead role in a Fox TV Network sci-fi series “Fringe” which ran from 2008 to 2013. For his part in the show Joshua Jackson was nominated for Teen Choice Award four times and even though he did not win, the show added a lot to his net worth. Overall, Joshua has been involved in over 35 films on the big screen, and more than 20 TV productions.

In his personal life, it is interesting to note that Kate Holmes who was 18 at the time they started to shoot “Dawson’s Creek” has admitted Joshua Jackson to be her first love. Their love story is finished long ago but the two are still good friends, even though Joshua has been dating Diane Kruger since 2006. Joshua’s sports interest is his passionate support of the Vancouver Canucks ice-hockey team.

# Quote
1 If I only dated actresses, I’d be a very lonely man.
2 I hate people saying anything stupid. I don’t really suffer fools very well at all. When people are acting like idiots, not that I’m not guilty of doing the odd idiotic thing myself from time to time, but when people say stupid things, it stresses me out.
3 I’ve had more of an opportunity to work with Katie Holmes, which is incredibly enjoyable. I think she is really one of the best actresses on the market right now. She forces you to bring your best stuff to the table, because if you don’t, she just completely overpowers you.
4 I’m not really the type to wear my heart on my sleeve. I would let someone know if I liked them, but it takes a while for me to fall in love.
5 For me, the desire exists less to get myself a degree than to just go and have the whole college experience, and throw myself into the brain pool and see if I can swim.
6 That’s the beauty of our show. If we don’t have a new crazy thing, something’s gone horribly wrong. There’s the individual creepy, gooey stuff, but what we’ve done pretty well is make each one of the creepy gooey things adds up to a much bigger story. — on “Fringe”
7 It seems this [parallel universe] idea is part of the zeitgeist right now. Maybe it’s due to my west coast liberal upbringing, but, the idea of parallel universes doesn’t strike me as being too far out there. After the 60s and its psychedelia and the doors of perception and what have you. What defies my imagination is that there would be nothing out there that would defy my imagination. Maybe it’s because I’m a sci-fi fan. It’s like the Carl Sagan thing, the candle in the dark – it only serves to illuminate how much we still don’t know. — on the idea of parallel universes.
8 Nobody criticizes the ‘Mighty Ducks’ trilogy and gets away with it. Nobody!
9 I love Vancouver. I can be with my family, I can reconnect with the guys. It will always be my home.
10 “I think Uma Thurman is one of God’s creatures, one of the most beautiful women I’ve ever seen”.
11 I was born in Vancouver, moved to Los Angeles and when my parents split up, gradually moved back up the west coast. I was able to pack a lot of experience into my 19 years. My parents getting divorced was obviously a very traumatic experience. And then after, it was just me, my sister and my mother, and we went at it alone. I went from being a very well-off little kid to having a couple rough years, to rebuilding, my mother did that. She and I are very close.
12 The anti-elitist values in America, I think, are very destructive to education.
