Matthew Fox

Matthew Chandler Fox (born July 14, 1966) is an American actor and former model. His first major role was playing older brother and family patriarch Charlie Salinger on Party of Five in the 1990s, co-starring with Scott Wolf, Neve Campbell, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and Lacey Chabert. He enjoyed even greater fame as Dr. Jack Shephard on the ABC drama series Lost. Fox was born in Abington Township, Pennsylvania. His mother, Loretta B. (née Iacono), was a teacher, and his father, Francis G. Fox, raised longhorn cattle and horses and grew barley for Coors beer. Fox's mother was of Italian descent and his father was of English descent; he is a descendant of Union General George Meade. When Fox was very young, his parents and siblings, Francis Jr. (b. 1961) and Bayard (b. 1969), moved to Wyoming, where they lived on and were caretakers of the remote "Bitterroot Ranch" outside Dubois for Bayard Fox and Louise "Wendy" Fox. After a few harsh winters, Fox's family purchased the ranch in Crowheart, Wyoming, and he was raised there. Fox graduated from High School in Wyoming and attended Deerfield Academy for a Post-Graduate year.
