Aaron Richard Ashmore (born October 7, 1979) is a Canadian film and television actor, perhaps best known for his roles in American TV shows, as Jimmy Olsen in Smallville and as Steve Jinks in Warehouse 13. He is the twin brother of actor Shawn Ashmore.
Aaron Ashmore is best known for playing Marc Hall in the 2004 Canadian TV movie Prom Queen: The Marc Hall Story. Since then, he has appeared in the films Safe, A Separate Peace, and A Bear Named Winnie. He has also had guest roles on television shows such as The Eleventh Hour, The West Wing, and 1-800-Missing. Ashmore played the recurring role of Troy Vandegraff on The WB television series Veronica Mars, and is currently playing the role of Agent Steve Jinks on the Syfy show Warehouse 13.
He was cast as Jimmy Olsen, first love interest of Chloe Sullivan, for the sixth season of Smallville on the WB television network and continued to play him into its eighth season. Two years after leaving the show, Ashmore returns to play his character's younger brother on the series finale. Coincidentally, his friend Sam Huntington played Olsen in Superman Returns and the two have both appeared in Veronica Mars. Ashmore's twin brother appeared on Smallville in earlier seasons. Besides his recurring role on Smallville, Ashmore had roles in the 2007 films Palo Alto, Privileged, The Stone Angel and The Christmas Cottage. Aaron starred the horror film Fear Island, with Haylie Duff in Vancouver.
Aaron and his twin brother Shawn were born in Richmond, British Columbia, and raised in Brampton, Ontario, where he attended Turner Fenton Secondary School, and Earnscliffe Senior Public School. They have a "GMA" tattoo on their wrists that stands for "Good Man Ashmore". Their grandfather had a similar tattoo.
