Mini Bio (1)

The year 1994 marked the beginning of the career for Canadian actor Shawn Roberts. Born in Stratford, Ontario, Canada on April 2, Shawn lucked upon a life-changing break while he was portraying the part of the Wolf in a school play version of Little Red Riding Hood. Award-winning screenwriter Robert Forsyth, father of one of Shawn's friends, spotted Roberts while attending this play. Through Forsythe's efforts, Shawn was then recommended to a Toronto acting agency. He had a guest appearance on the TV series Sirens (1994) in 1994 before landing a regular role in 1996 on the new series Emily of New Moon (1998). Throughout the rest of the 1990s, Shawn generally remained on television, showing up on various series before striking gold with his first movie appearance. In 2000, he gained a part in the first X-Men (2000) movie, playing Rogue's boyfriend Cody. Since 2000, the career of Shawn Roberts thus balanced out appropriately well between television and film work.

Personal Quotes (3)

It's always nice to be able to show your friends and family what it is that you do. I've had their support from the beginning and wouldn't be here without it, so yeah, I do whatever I can to be there with them when they go to see it.
I was 12 years old, so auditioning for a TV show was something I didn't even think really happened. The next thing you know, I ended up booking the gig and I did four seasons on 'Emily of New Moon.' I got to learn on the job and kept going from there.
I've worked with people at different stages of their careers and different success levels, and one thing I've noticed about the guys at the top is they're so relaxed and calm - it's about not having anything to prove except doing good work.
