Craig Sheffer was raised with his brother in his hometown by his father, Rock Sheffer, who was a prison guard and screenwriter, and his mother, Anna, who worked as a nurse; his brother is Hogan Sheffer, a writer. As a child he was very interested in acting, so he started to compete in regional and state high school drama competitions when he was only 15 years old. After high school, he enrolled at Stroudsburg State University in East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, but after two years he quit education to devote his full time to acting.

However, before he found fame in the acting world, Craig worked as a newspaper salesman, and was feeding at Unification Church and sleeping at the Grand Central Station. Fortunately, he landed the role of Ian Hayden in the soap opera “One Life to Live” in 1982, and since then he has made more than 70 film and TV appearances. He spent the `80s building his name, with roles in such films as “Voyage of the Rock Aliens” (1984), and “That Was Then… This is Now” (1985), starring Emilio Estevez and Larry B. Scott. In 1986 he was cast in the lead role in the romantic drama “Fire With Fire”, alongside Virginia Madsen and Jon Polito, while in 1987 he had a supporting role in Howard Deutch`s “Some Kind of Wonderful”, with Lea Thompson and Eric Stoltz as leads. He finished the decade with roles in “Split Decisions” (1988), and “Babycakes” (1989). His net worth was rising steadily.

He started off the 1990s with the lead role in Clive Barker`s horror “Nightbreed”, and continued with success in the early ‘90s by appearing in such productions as the Oscar-Awarded Robert Redford’ drama “A River Runs Through It” (1992), with Brad Pitt and Tom Skerritt, “Fire in the Sky” (1993), and “Sleep with Me” (1994), alongside Meg Tilly.

The 1990s were certainly the prime time of Craig`s career, as he starred in several films until the new millennium, including “Wings of Courage” (1995), “In Pursuit of Honor” (1995) with Sam Elliott, “The Grave” (1996) with Gabrielle Anwar, “Head Above Water” (1996) next to Harvey Kietel and Cameron Diaz, Joseph Sargent`s “Miss Evers` Boys” (1997) with Laurence Fishbourne and Alfre Woodard, and “Flypaper” (1999), all of which increased his net worth by a large margin.

Nothing changed for Craig in the early 2000s, as he continued to feature in lead roles, and made appearances in such films as Scott Derrickson`s “Hellraiser: Inferno” (2000), “Maze” in the same year, and Patrick Lussier`s “Dracula II: Ascension” (2003), while also in 2003 he was selected for the role of Keith Scott in the TV series “One Three Hill” (2003-2012), and in 2004 he played in the western drama “The Pavilion” with Patsy Kensit and Richard Chamberlain. He then focused more on the TV series as his character became regular, but still made brief appearances in such films as “While She Was Out” (2008), and “Ashley`s Ashes” in 2010. After the end of the series, Craig returned to acting film full-time, and landed roles in “The Mark” (2012), “The Mark: Redemption” (2013), and most recently “Code of Honor” (2016), all of which have added a substantial amount to his net worth.

When it comes to speak about his personal life, Craig Sheffer has a daughter with English actress Gabrielle Anwar, his partner in the 1990s. In spare time, he enjoys photography and writing.

Quotes

#Quote
1[on acting in films] I think it's real easy to look at what's out there and get discouraged. I was never the best-looking guy, I was never the Tom Cruise-looking guy. I think the biggest thing I can say is, "Don't compare yourself". Focus on making you the best you you can be as an actor and follow your own path. You can't compare an apple to an orange. It will cause a lot of self-esteem issues.
