Date of Birth : May 23rd 1960
American film and television actor. One of his first roles was as Lance Reventlow, the only son of Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton (played by Farrah Fawcett) in the Golden Globe-winning miniseries Poor Little Rich Girl: The Barbara Hutton Story.
Ashby is perhaps best known for his role of Johnny Cage in the 1995 hit Mortal Kombat. He was unable to reprise the role in the sequel, where the character – only briefly seen – was played by Chris Conrad. The previous year, he also appeared alongside Kevin Costner in the 1994 epic Wyatt Earp. Ashby portrayed Dr. Jeff Chapman on the 1998 made-for-TV movie The Lake with Yasmine Bleeth. He appeared in the third installment of the Resident Evil franchise, Resident Evil: Extinction; it marked his first appearance in a theatrical release in twelve years since the release of the original Mortal Kombat. In that span, he has done mainly straight-to-video and television work.
He was on Melrose Place as Dr. Brett Cooper for one season in 1998, and played Cameron Kirsten on The Young and the Restless from 2003 to 2004. He also began playing the role of Paul Hollingsworth on Days of our Lives in March 2008. In a November 2008 SOAP interview, Ashby was interviewed, saying that he read the script and will reprise his role as Johnny Cage in the upcoming third Mortal Kombat film.
