Roberts was spotted by Robert Forsythe, a Gemini award-winning screenwriter, when he appeared as the wolf in a school production of Little Red Riding Hood. Forsythe, the father of one of Shawn's friends, recommended the boy to a high profile Toronto acting agency.

His first role was a guest appearance on the TV series Sirens in 1994. In 1996, Forsythe helped Shawn land a regular role on the brand new TV series Emily of New Moon, playing Emily's love interest, Teddy Kent. Filmed in Prince Edward Island, the show wouldn't air until 1998. In the meantime, Shawn kept busy with two guest appearances on Goosebumps.

Once Emily of New Moon hit the airwaves, Shawn was deluged with offers. In 1999, he made guest appearances on Real Kids, Real Adventures, La Femme Nikita, The Famous Jett Jackson and Twice in a Lifetime. As well, he played Peter in the TV movie Sea People, starring Hume Cronyn, and made his feature film debut as Daniel in Jacob Two Two Meets the Hooded Fang (1999).

The role of Cody in the big budget blockbuster, X-Men (2000), launched Roberts into the big time. Roles in Hollywood pictures such as Get Over It (2001) starring Kirsten Dunst and The House on Turk Street (2002) starring Samuel L. Jackson, were followed by a regular role on the hit TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation.
