March 1st marks the birthday of a very special and immensely talented person. 35 years ago on this very day, a star was born. He's an American actor and director. He's best known for his roles of:
Eric Brady in Days of our Lives Alec/X5-494 in Dark Angel Jason Teague in Smallville Currently he plays Dean Winchester on Supernatural, the best hunter in the world. JENSEN ACKLES
Born in Dallas, Texas, Jensen started his acting career in 1996 even though he had been modeling on and off since he was 4. He appeared in several guest roles before joining Days of our Lives as Eric Brady. He appeared in several others shows before joining CW as Dean Winchester in Supernatural. The show's currently on Season 8 and has been approved for Season 9 where Dean Winchester will continue hunting with his younger brother, Sam (Jared Padalecki), and a fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins).
Jensen also had lead roles in movies:
Devour My Bloody Valentine 3D Ten Inch Hero
Jensen has won several awards including the Soap Opera Digest Award for Best Male Newcomer (1998) for Days of Our Lives, the Ewwy Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series for Supernatural (2008 and 2010), TV Guide Award for Favorite Actor for Supernatural (2011). The show also won People's Choice Awards for Best Sci-Fi/Fantasy show and Best Fan Following!
Jensen dated actress Danneel Harris for 3 years before they married in November 2009 in Dallas, Texas.
They're expecting their first child and are very excited. Jensen said that he thinks "he'll be a confused dad in the beginning and then we'll see where it goes from there."
Jensen is very simple and shy. He's also very down-to-earth. He once said, "I'm not Mr. Debonair Suave. I'm just a regular boy who goofs around, pulls pranks, and makes jokes. That doesn't sound very hot to me."
When Jensen was asked if he regrets not going to college, he replied, "I feel as though I got a very interesting "life college." I moved out to this huge city all by myself. I had to grow up quickly. I learned a lot of things about the real world that my friends are just learning. Also, I started reading the dictionary and books about college education ' I was teaching myself what my friends were learning in class. And it worked out ' I would come home and talk to them about stuff that they hadn't even learned yet."
Jensen believes in a private life, "Some people will go to the opening of an envelope. They live their lives in the public eye and get off on it, they need it. They need that kind of adoration. If their name isn't in the tabloids once a week they feel like a failure. I choose to live a more private life, as does Jared. We just don't believe in that sort of thing of "it doesn't matter what they're saying so long as they're talking about you."
It's hard to find someone so famous and yet so adorably shy and humble. Happy Birthday, Jensen Ackles!!! May you have many many manyyy more!!
