Judging from what we have seen so far, it is very obvious that Jensen Ackles has chosen the right path professionally, as he has distinguished himself as a director and actor in the film industry. The young man may not be as popular as some of Hollywood’s top directors such as Steven Spielberg, Ridley Scott, David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu, Denis Villeneuve, Quentin Tarantino, James Cameron, and many others, but he can certainly boast a wonderful and impressive directing career. Although he is more of an actor than a director, his most remarkable work is “Supernaturals”, which he directed from 2010-2015.
Jensen Ackles Biography (Age)
The full name of the Hollywood actor is Jensen Ross Ackles. He is the son of Donna Joan (mother) and Alan Roger Ackles (father). Alan is an actor and the father of Donna’s other children – Josh Ackles (Jensen’s biological brother) and Mackenzie Ackles (Jensen’s biological sister). The movie star was born on March 1, 1978, in Dallas, Texas, in the United States, into a multiracial family of Scottish, Irish, German, and English roots. His nationality is American.
Jensen’s original plan was to become a physical therapist and his intention was to join the Department of Sports Medicine at Texas Tech University. However, he later changed his mind and moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting.
He began his career in the film industry in 1996, eighteen years after his birth. At the age of four, he started as a model, then left the path and turned to act, taking on several roles as a guest actor in films such as Cybill, Sweet Valley High, and Mr. Rhodes.
Following his outstanding performances in the above-mentioned films, Jensen was given a lead role as Eric Brady in the NBC soap “Days of Our Lives” in 1997. He was then promoted to a major star for his role in the soap opera. The film earned him three nominations in 1998, 1999, and 2000 for a Daytime Emmy Award in a drama series for outstanding young actors, and a Soap Opera Digest Award for Best Young Male Actor in 1998.
Jensen completed his shooting of Our Lives in 2000 and subsequently appeared in many television series, including Blond, Dark Angel (2001 2002), Dawson’s Creek as CJ (last season), The Plight of Clownana (2004 as supporting actor), Devor as Jake Gray (2005), Supernatural as Dean Winchester (2005) and others.
Ackles began his next major acting project in the summer of 2007 when he was cast as a member of Ten Inch Hero, an independent comedy show, which turned out to be his professional theatrical debut. His role in theater production also earned high praise and much admiration.
The Supernatural star has also provided his voice as a dubbing artist for several animated films and video games. He is said to have sung The Batman: Under The Red Hood (2010) as Little Red Riding Hood and as Gibson in the video game Tron: Evolution (2010).
His Wife and Kids (Twins)
Jensen Ackles is blessed with a beautiful woman named Danneel Harris. A model/actress, she is the daughter of an interior designer, Deborah Graul, and a practicing eye doctor, Edward E. Graul Jr.
Born Elta Danneel Graul, Jensen’s wife was welcomed into the world on March 18, 1979. She owes her popularity both within and outside the film scene to the American daytime soap opera One Life to Live and One Tree Hill, a television drama series.
The couple were together for three years, got engaged in November 2009, and finally said “I do” on May 15, 2010, in Dallas. In May 2013 they welcomed their first child, and on December 2, 2016, they welcomed their lovely twin babies, a boy, and a girl.

Together with his parents-in-law and his wife he is co-owner of the company. The value of his assets currently amounts to 14 million dollars. It is expected that Ackles’ net worth will rise above this figure as he continues to work hard.
