Matthew Fox an amazing American actor, do you know about him?

Most of you may have seen his exuberant performance in the famed TV series ‘LOST,’ which garnered him many nominations for the prestigious ‘Golden Globe Award’ and ‘Primetime Emmy Award.’

Fox was born on July 14, 1966, in Abington, Pennsylvania, to Loretta B. and Francis G. Fox. His father was from a “very blue-blood” Pennsylvania family of largely English lineage, while his mother was half Italian and half British.

Matthew was a post-graduate student at Deerfield Academy for one year and graduated with the class of 1984. In 1989, he received a B.A. in economics from Columbia University.

Fox made his television debut in an episode of Wings when he was 25 years old. In the same year, he starred in Freshman Dorm, a short-lived drama series.

He is best known for his appearances as Charlie Salinger on Party of Five (1994–2000) and Jack Shephard on the drama series Lost (2004–2010), for which he received Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy nominations. We Are Marshall (2006), Vantage Point (2008), Alex Cross (2012), Emperor (2012), and Bone Tomahawk (2012) are among the 10 feature films in which Fox has appeared (2015).

Fox married his longtime lover, Margherita Ronchi, an Italian native, in 1992. While Fox was a student at Columbia, the couple met. Kyle Allison and Byron were born to the couple later in life.

Fox also works as a photographer. A bonus CD included with The Complete First Series of Lost includes “The Art of Matthew Fox,” which features photographs he took of the cast and crew while on production.

Fox enjoys flying airplanes and owns a Bonanza G36.

He once said “To be up there by yourself, and it’s all up to you whether it’s gonna be an amazing flight or it’s not gonna go as beautiful. I feel like I’m hyper-prepared when I fly. There is so much you don’t have control over.

Fox was accused of attacking a female bus driver in Cleveland, Ohio, on August 28, 2011. Prosecutors decided against charging Fox. The bus driver dropped a legal claim in May 2012 after her counsel resigned and revealed that she “deliberately failed and refused to offer complete and timely cooperation and information.”

Fox came on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October 2012 and dismissed the charges as false, noting that he couldn’t refute them at the moment due to the current trial. He said he was assaulted in the face and retaliated, and that the bus driver sought to extort money from him using her version of events; he claimed prosecutors in the criminal case found her claims were a “hoax.”

His Lost co-star Dominic Monaghan tweeted about Fox in May 2012, “He abuses women. These are not isolated cases. Often.” “The Monaghan thing — was a lot of garbage,”

Fox said, “and I’m not going to waste too much time on that.” In 2012, he also told Men’s Journal, “I’ve never struck a lady before. Never have and will never have. But I believe that no matter what, there will be many individuals who believe it is true.”

His character appeared to be full of experiences and he always accepted each challenge with a brave heart.
