Joshua Jackson can't wait for free time

Joshua Jackson can't wait to get back to being "the master of [his] own day" when his latest TV show ends.

The actor stars in sci-fi series Fringe which concludes in January with a two-hour series finale. Joshua says the end of the J.J. Abrams programme will be bittersweet.

"I really cherish the relationships I have with my co-stars, so saying goodbye to them will be the hardest part. As great as it is to have a job, it will be nice to go back to being in a place in my life where the entire year isn't structured around a TV show and I can be the master of my own day," he told Parade.

Joshua shot to fame portraying Pacey Witter on US TV show Dawson's Creek, which also starred Katie Holmes, James Van Der Beek and Michelle Williams.

There has been a lot of talk of a big screen adaptation of the series, with James trying to organise a fictional reunion on his new TV show Don't Trust the B***h in Apartment 23.

Joshua doesn't think the former co-stars will ever appear alongside each other in a film version of the series.

"But I can't possibly put into words what an important time in my life that was. I was 19 and doing what I loved with a group of actors that became like family. I look back on it really fondly," he gushed.

Joshua's latest film Lay the Favorite is set in Las Vegas, but the star insists he isn't a gambler.

"I like playing poker, but I'm not really a Vegas guy. The idea of going there for a weekend to lose thousands of dollars doesn't seem like fun to me!" he quipped.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
