Andrew Jackson was born to a military clergyman and a high-school music teacher in Newmarket, and spent his childhood in various parts of Ontario, Alberta, and Nova Scotia, Canada. He received a Bachelor in English at McMaster University and later attended the National Theatre School and Banff School of Fine Arts to complete his training as an actor.
Since the beginning of his career, Jackson proved to be a versatile actor and as a result, has worked extensively in television, film and theatre. From 1987 to 1990 he was part of his home country's prestigious Stratford Festival, winning in his first year the Jean A. Chalmers Award for most promising newcomer. During that time he got his first minor screen roles in such features as State Park and Red Blooded American Girl.
After that, he set his sights on New York City and got his first big break when cast as Dr. Stephen Hamill on All My Children, which would give him a steady fan base and the exposure needed to jump-start a screen career.
Following that work, he came back to the stage playing Christian in the Sterling Award winning production of Cyrano de Bergerac at the Citadel Theatre in Edmonton in 1994.
As the decade progressed, he could frequently be seen in such small-screen series as Family Passions and Sirens, in addition to a number of made-for-television features including Breach of Faith: Family of Cops II. Jackson continued gaining momentum onscreen with roles in The Last Don II and John Woo's Blackjack. A fateful trip to Los Angeles to essay a guest role on the popular series Charmed was followed by a return to Canada to play the lead in the popular series Wind at My Back and a recurring role in Earth: Final Conflict. In 2002, Jackson appeared in no less than nine film and television productions including Steven Spielberg's acclaimed sci-fi miniseries Taken.
The new millennium seemed to be treating him very well, with a recurring role in the series Andromeda, another guest spot in the popular Category 6: Day of Destruction and in the 2005 thriller Edison, acting alongside Kevin Spacey and Morgan Freeman, as Ives, a hard-assed, militaristic cop, whose part of a F.R.A.T. unit that is unanswerable to the law. Right after that, he took part in the pilot of a series then called Quantico that would become a big hit since its debut that fall under the final title of Criminal Minds. A succession of recurring roles would follow in series and miniseries like Terminal City, Merlin's Apprentice, The Collector, Kyle XY, XIII and Being Erica.
Jackson has also made his way into the commercial voice world and completed more than a hundred voice projects. Of course he has made incursions in the world of video games with vocal work for series like Beast Wars: Transformers and providing the opening title narrations for Earth: Final Conflict being his favorite his first, the Incredible Hulk for the Marvel series. He too has landed roles in numerous animation series including Razzbery Jazzberry Jam, Skatoony, Pippi Lonstonking, Di-Gata Defenders II and The Amazing Spiez.
Jackson spent part of his free time with an organization called A.R.K. (Actors Reading for Kids) visiting children in schools and hospitals and reading for them.
