Matthew Fox Net Worth $20 Million

Matthew Chandler Fox who is Italian/English American was born in 1966 in Pennsylvania but his family moved to Wyoming when he was still a baby. Mathew grew up on the farm as his parents were the caretakers of a ranch. Fox attended Columbia University and majored in economics. After appearing in a student film, he started acting for TV at the age of 25 but the shows he appeared in ‘Wings’ and ‘Freshmen dorm’ did not tuned out successful. Matthew did several supporting roles later on but his career did not seem very promising for a while. His fortune changed in 1993 when he got a part in a movie ‘My Boyfriend is back’ which happened to be Fox’s big screen debut. Even bigger success came to him in 1995 when he played Charlie Salinger in a famous TV series titled “Party of Five”. This show brought him fame as he appeared there alongside such actors as Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lacey Chabert, Scott Wolf and Neve Campbell. No doubt this job, helped to increase Mathew Fox net worth significantly. In addition to that, Fox made it to the ’s magazine’s list of the 50 Most Beautiful People in the World.

In 2002 he appeared in another TV series called ‘Haunted’ but it was no other than ‘Lost’ that became a real key to his success as well to boosting Matthew Fox net worth. ‘Lost’ is supernatural drama series that received a cult following all over the world and thanks to which Matthew Fox will be forever recognized as Doctor Jack Shepherd. Fox was seen on TV as Dr Shepherd along with Evangeline Lilly as Kate and Josh Holloway as Soyer for six years from 2004 to 2010.

While still in ‘Lost’, Matthew took on several supporting roles in such movies as Smokin’ Aces (2006), We Are Marshall (2006) and Vantage Point (2008). After Lost, however, Fox decided that he is “done with television”. Since then appeared in a stage play ‘In a Forest, Dark and Deep’ (2011) where he shared a stage with Olivia Williams, and in 2012 thriller called Alex Cross in which he portrayed Michael “The Butcher” Sullivan/”Picasso”.. Recently he also appeared in the 2013 film “World War Z” together with Brad Pitt. It seems like Matthew Fox net worth is only going to grow.
