Date of Birth : Jul 14th 1966
American actor and former model. His first major role was playing an older brother and patriarch Charlie Salinger on Party of Five in the 1990s, co-starring with both Scott Wolf and Neve Campbell. More recently, he gained much greater fame for playing Jack Shephard on the hit ABC drama series Lost.
At the age of 25, Fox made his debut on an episode of Wings. That same year, he also starred on a short-lived dramatic series, Freshman Dorm. Still not a familiar face on the small screen, he continued getting cast in supporting roles, including the role of Charlie in the CBS Schoolbreak Special series, If I Die Before I Wake before he made his big screen debut in My Boyfriend’s Back (1993).
In 1994, Fox was cast in a co-starring role as the eldest of five siblings who lose both parents in a car accident on the 1990s teen drama, Party of Five, as Charlie Salinger. In 1996, People Magazine named Fox as one of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World. After Party of Five was canceled following its sixth season, Fox starred in another TV series Haunted, in 2002.
Since September 2004, Fox has played the role of the troubled and dedicated surgeon, Dr. Jack Shephard, on Lost. He initially auditioned for the role of James “Sawyer” Ford. However, co-creator J. J. Abrams thought he would be better for the role of Jack, a role originally slated to be for the pilot episode only. Fox was nominated for a Golden Globe, won the 2005 Satellite Award, and shared the 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series, for his role in Lost. Incidentally, Fox is the only cast member to know the ending of the show.
