Jackson Rathbone biography

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

Jackson Rathbone

Date of Birth: December 21, 1984

Born in Singapore, Jackson Rathbone began performing in local theater after his family relocated to Midland, Texas. After high school, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in acting, where he landed a gig on the show Disney 411, interviewing Disney Channel stars such as Hilary Duff and Raven Symone.

Guest appearances on series such as Close to Home and The O.C. preceded a stint as a regular on Sony Pictures Television's drama series Beautiful People. When the series came to an end, he found himself playing roles in independent films such as River's End and Big Stan.

Rathbone's big break came in 2008, when he was chosen to play Jasper, one of the Cullen brothers in the hit movie Twilight. It started out as a low budget production, but the popularity of the books it's based on made it one of the top ten highest grossing films of 2008. Rathbone returns as Jasper for the other movies in the Twilight series—The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 2. He also played a lead role in M. Night Shymalan's The Last Airbender (2010).

In his spare time, Rathbone enjoys playing guitar with his band.
