Born in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada, in 1979, the Ashmore twins, Shawn and Aaron, have followed similar paths as actors, occasionally even portraying twins onscreen. However, one question remains: does one twin outshine the other when it comes to net worth?
Shawn Ashmore, known for his role as Iceman in the ‘X-Men’ film series, started his acting journey at a young age. His television debut arrived in 1989 with the series ‘Rin Tin Tin: K-9 Cop,’ followed by his big-screen appearance in the 1991 movie ‘Married to It.’
Over the years, Ashmore’s career included a variety of roles, from Cadet Major Brad Rigby in ‘Cadet Kelly’ to Agent Mike Weston in the Fox series ‘The Following.’ He also won an MTV Movie Award for Breakthrough Male Performance for his role in ‘X2.’ His achievements continued with a Leo Award and a Teen Choice Award nomination.
As of 2023, Shawn has a net worth of $3 million. He invested $1.9 million in a Studio City, California home in 2015, later listing it for $2.1 million in October 2020. Beyond his professional achievements, Ashmore has been married to film executive Dana Wasdin since 2012.
On the other hand, his twin brother, Aaron, is known for his roles in ‘Smallville’ and ‘Warehouse 13.’ While his debut as an extra in ‘Married to It’ came in 1991, he returned to acting professionally in 2001 and starred in recurring roles in various TV shows. Aaron also appeared in the films like ‘The Shrine,’ ‘Conception,’ and ‘Fear Island.’ He has also been married to Zoë Kate since 2014.
As of 2023, Aaron has a lower net worth than his twin brother, with an estimated $2 million. His yearly income exceeds half a million dollars. Shawn’s involvement in major blockbuster films like the ‘X-Men’ could be one of the reasons for his higher net worth compared to Aaron, who took part roles in TV shows and smaller films.
