Jensen Ackles got his start at the age of four appearing in print advertising and commercials for Nabisco, Wal-Mart, and Radio Shack. In 1995, about ten years later, Jensen attended a workshop for actors in Dallas, Texas where he was discovered by a talent agency and management firm from Los Angeles. Since they were impressed with his work, they quickly signed Jensen. They then encouraged Jensen to move to California after he finished high school at Berkner High School in Richardson.
Before Jensen moved to California, he appeared in the PBS series "Wishbone" which is taped in Dallas. After a few months living in L.A., he landed a guest star role on "Sweet Valley High". Soon after that role he landed a regular role on the NBC sitcom "Mr. Rhodes".
After his role on Mr. Rhodes, Jensen then got the role on "Days of Our Lives" playing Eric Brady.
Has one brother, Joshua, approximately three years older, and one sister, Mackenzie, approximately seven years younger.
Fan of the Dallas Cowboys.
He was almost named Justin, but his parents (Alan and Donna) thought the name was too common.
Planned to study sports medicine at Texas Tech University and become a physical therapist, before he decided to move to LA to give acting a try.
