Profile: Jensen Ackles

In lieu of my post regarding Jared Padalecki, I thought it would be appropriate to compose a post addressing Jensen Ackles considering the two men work together and are good friends outside of work. This information is derived from Wikipedia.

Jensen Ross Ackles, born March 1, 1978, is best known for his role as Dean Winchester in the television series Supernatural. Some of his past work includes his role as Eric Brady in Days of our Lives and Jason Teague in Smallville. He further starred in My Bloody Valentine and played Jason Todd in the animated Batman: Under the Red Hood film. He was also involved with modeling for a majority of his childhood and began modeling at the age of four.


Ackles was born in Dallas, Texas, and has a sister and a brother. He had originally planned to pursue sports medicine as a career at Texas Tech University, however, he changed career paths and moved to Los Angeles to begin a career in acting.

Ackles is married to actress and model Dannel Harris. The two dated for three years and married on May 15, 2010, in Dallas, Texas. They have a daughter, born in 2013, and in 2016 the two welcomed twins, a boy, and a girl, to their family.

Ackles and Jared Padalecki, his co-star on Supernatural, play brothers on the show, and the two of them are actually good friends in real life. They were in each other’s wedding parties and the two regularly socialize outside of work along with their families.

Ackles really is a talented actor, and I think his role as Dean Winchester on Supernatural is phenomenal. I can’t imagine a better person to be cast to play this role, as well as Padalecki as Sam on the show, and I look forward to continuing to watch them together on screen.
