Early life

Fox was born in Abington, Pennsylvania, the son of Loretta B. (née Eagono) and Francis G. Fox. One of his paternal great-great-great-grandfathers was Union General George Meade. His father was from a "very blue-blood" Pennsylvania family of mostly English descent, while his mother was of half Italian and half British and Irish ancestry. When Fox was a year old, he moved to Wyoming with his parents and siblings, Francis, Jr. (b. 1961) and Bayard (b. 1969). They settled in Crowheart, on the Wind River Indian Reservation. His mother was a teacher, and his father, who had been a consultant for an oil company, raised longhorn cattle and horses, and grew barley for Coors beer. He attended Deerfield Academy for one year as a post-graduate and graduated with the class of 1984.

From September 2004 until May 2010, Fox played the role of the dedicated yet troubled 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.

On August 28, 2011, Fox was reported to have assaulted a female bus driver in Cleveland, Ohio. On September 16, 2011, a spokeswoman for the city of Cleveland announced that prosecutors had decided not to charge Fox. A civil suit related to the alleged incident has been filed. In May 2012, the bus driver withdrew her suit, after her lawyer withdrew and revealed that she “intentionally failed and refused to provide full and timely cooperation and information.”

On May 6, 2012, Fox was arrested for driving under the influence in Oregon. He was taken into custody and released that same day. On June 1, 2012, Fox's lawyer entered a plea of no contest to one count of DUI in Deschutes County Circuit Court and stated that they will move forward with a diversion program to avoid criminal charges.
