NAME: Shawn Ashmore
WHERE YOU'VE SEEN HIM: As student Bobby Drake, aka Iceman, in last year's X-Men and
X2 out May 2.
WHY WE PICKED HIM: Sweet smile, baby-blue eyes, and a sensitive action hero -- how
could we resist this 23-year-old from Toronto?
BEST THING ABOUT THE SEQUEL: Shawn has a bigger part -- he gets a girlfriend (Rogue, played
by Anna Paquin) and perfects his freezing power.
WORST THING ABOUT THE SEQUEL: He's not in any love scenes. "Rogue and I are dating, but since
her touch harms people, we can't even kiss."
WHAT HE HAS IN COMMON WITH MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY: Shawn's a twin. And his brother Aaron's also
an actor whom you may have seen in The Skulls II.
WHAT HE DOESN'T HAVE IN COMMON WITH THE OLSEN TWINS: "Aaron and I aren't coming out with a
clothing or makeup line."
WHY HE NEEDS A GIRL TO HOLD HIS HAND: So that he won't bite his fingernails. "That's my worst
habit. I've even tried wearing bitter nail polish, but nothing works." Want to help him kick the habit?
