Rugged yet undeniably hard to resist, Jensen Ackles
makes the most out of his bad-boy character image to capture the hearts of hunk-thirsty viewers. Number 26 on TV Guide's 50 Sexiest Men List in 2006 and number 2 on TV Magazine's 50 Hottest New Faces in 2005, he certainly fits the description of a heartthrob. Ultimately, this gorgeous hunk gets his positive break on the television series Supernatural
Born on March 1, 1978 in Dallas, Texas, Jensen Ackles studied at Dartmouth Elementary School and Lloyd V. Berkner High School. He planned to become a physical therapist prior to becoming an actor. Initially, he modeled on and off as a child and then eventually landed guest roles on television shows like Mr. Rhodes, Cybill
and Sweet Valley High
. This was followed by his inclusion in the soap opera Days of Our Lives
where he won a Soap Opera Digest Award for Best male Newcomer in 1998 for his portrayal of the character Eric Brady. Subsequently, he was also nominated three times for a Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Younger Actor in a Drama Series.
Playing Dean Winchester in the horror themed series Supernatural
gives Jensen Ackles the ample burst in the television loop. Together with his equally hot brother, Sam
, they take on a quest to sabotage evil spirits and find their mother's killer demon. It's no wonder he earns the spot for one of the Sexiest Ghostbusters in People magazine.
