Peter Bishop/Joshua Jackson #20 "Because he is a better man than his fathers.

Name – Joshua Carter Jackson
Date of Birth – 11 June 1978
Place of Birth – Vancouver, Canada
Hair – Brown
Eyes – Blue
Height – 6´2’’

Joshua Jackson has been working in front of the camera for almost 20 years. During his summer hiatus, Jackson filmed
a starring role opposite Rebecca Hall, Bruce Willis and Catherine Zeta-Jones in the independent feature film "Lay the Favorite" for director Stephen Frears.

Jackson's feature film debut was in Michael Bortman's "Crooked Hearts." He has since appeared in the "Mighty Ducks" trilogy, "Cursed," "Gossip," "Apt Pupil,"
"Cruel Intentions," "Digger," "Andre," "Aurora Borealis," "Bobby," "Shutter" and "The Skulls," as well as in Rose Troche's critically acclaimed
"The Safety of Objects" and the film version of Moises Kaufman's groundbreaking play "The Laramie Project."
For his work in the Canadian feature film "One Week," Jackson received the 2010 Genie Award for Best Actor. He has also made cameo appearances in
Steven Soderbergh's "Ocean's 11," "Scream 2," "Urban Legend" and "I Love Your Work."
Jackson portrayed the fast-talking, self-deprecating "Pacey Witter" on "Dawson's Creek" for the popular series' six-season run.
Additionally, Jackson enjoyed a successful run on London's West End starring in "A Life in the Theatre" alongside Patrick Stewart.
The acclaimed comedy was written by the Academy Award-nominated and Pulitzer Prize- and Olivier Award-winning David Mamet.
A Vancouver native, Jackson divides his time between his hometown and Los Angeles.

"If girls were going after me, I would not only admit it, but I would probably exaggerate about the swarming masses. I can flirt and have fun,
but at the end of the day, I'm not Tom Cruise. Girls are not falling all over me."

"I’m not really the type to wear my heart on my sleeve. I would let someone know if I liked them,
but it takes a while for me to fall in love."

"I'm more clumsy than slick when it comes to approaching girls. I wish I were slick!"

"I'm of the opinion that life doesn't always tie up neatly at the end of the episode."

"Most people call my style of dress slovenly, I call it extreme casual. If I didn't have a mother and a sister for the times
I do have to get dressed, I would be absolutely lost."

(how he looks at his future) "In an optimistic way: it's part of life and career, trying to move on, taking challenges on your job and solving personal problems.
I try to move on knowing that I can't always be successful and sometime I may fail.
My goal is to keep the non-success rate always lower that the success one."

"I love Vancouver. I can be with my family, I can reconnect with the guys. It will always be my home."

"Nobody criticizes the 'Mighty Ducks' trilogy and gets away with it. Nobody!"

"The anti-elitist values in America, I think, are very destructive to education."

"You know, at the end of the day, I can only be me. I could try to convince you that I'm Leonardo DiCaprio;
I could try to convince you that I'm Edward Norton; I could even try to convince you that I'm Julia Roberts. But I'm Josh.
And I don't want to spend my time projecting a false image."

"I think everybody--no matter what position you are in life you are always being tempted to stray from your own ideals, from your own path.
It's crucial that you don't wander--even though sometimes you succeed, and sometimes you fail. Given my own recent history,
I can tell you there is all kinds of pressure to join and be one of the crowd and to sacrifice what it is you believe.
It makes it much more difficult to walk your own path. But I think you have to try."

"I hate people saying anything stupid. I don’t really suffer fools very well at all. When people are acting like idiots,
not that I’m not guilty of doing the odd idiotic thing myself from time to time, but when people say stupid things,
it stresses me out. I have a pretty thick skin about people coming up to me and saying things to me when I’m out,
I don’t really mind that too much. but when people are just loud and annoying, it drives me crazy."

"I mean I'm not a grades-orientated person, I have no desire to be an A or B student, that's not what drives me.
But just learning in general. And going to school just to -- sit amongst, you know, a group of my peers and reap the
benefit of having 40 minds tackling a problem which means that you are inevitably going to have 40 different views on which way to do it.
And just learning from that. I think it's great."

"For me, the desire exists less to get myself a degree than to just go and have the whole college experience, and throw myself into the brain pool and see if I can swim."

Peter Bishop is the son of the Secretary of Defense Walter Bishop and Elisabeth Bishop from the Alternate Universe.
He was taken from that universe by Walter Bishop when he was a child, shortly after Walter’s real son died of a rare disease.
He was introduced as a high school dropout, misfit and nomad when he was recruited by Olivia Dunham go gain access to his father.
Peter became a member of the Fringe team where he uses his IQ of 190 and his jack of all trades knowledge to help solve
the mysterious cases they are often confronted with.
Peter discovered that he was from an alternate universe and that fact put a serious strain on his relationship with Walter
that had grown to become warm and caring. He crossed over to his original universe until he was brought back by Olivia Dunham
with whom he thought he was starting a relationship, only to find out later that it was indeed the Olivia Dunham from the other universe.
They eventually fix their relationship, but in an attempt to save both universes that fight for survival and those he loved,
Peter erases himself from time establishing a bridge between the universes.
