For other uses, see fox (disambiguation).

The fox (canis vulpus) is a canine mammal which is native to planet Earth.

In early January 2374, Chakotay told Kathryn Janeway the parable about the scorpion who sought to ride on a fox's back to cross a river safely, assuring the fox that he wouldn't sting him and he would be safe, as if he did sting him they would both drown in the river. Halfway across, the scorpion stung the fox and when the fox asked why he had stung him the scorpion replied, "I couldn't help it, it's my nature." It was Chakotay's hope that this would deter Janeway in her plan to form an alliance with the Borg Collective against Species 8472. (VOY episodes: "Scorpion", "Scorpion, Part II"; VOY - Infinity's Prism novel: Places of Exile)

Background and personal life

Matthew Chandler Fox (born July 14, 1966) is an American actor and former model. His first major role was playing an older brother and patriarch Charlie Salinger on Party of Five in the 1990s, co-starring with both Scott Wolf and Neve Campbell. Matthew Fox was born in Abington, Pennsylvania but grew up in Crowheart, Wyoming where his parents raised longhorn cattle and horses and grew barley for Coors beer.

He attended Wind River High School in Pavillion, Wyoming and did post-graduate high school study at Deerfield Academy in Massachusetts. Fox subsequently attended Columbia University where he played football and majored in Economics with the intent to end up on Wall Street. Fox also studying acting for two years at The School for Film and Television in New York City.

Fox married Margherita Ronchi in 1992. They have two children, Kyle and Byron.

Career

Fox as he appeared in Haunted

In college, his girlfriend's mother, a modeling agent, convinced him to try some modeling. This job subsequently led to several television commercials, leading Fox to pursue a career in acting. After attending The School for Film and Television in New York City, Fox began searching for roles. His first major part was a guest role on a 1992 episode of the television show Wings, where he played the part of Ty Warner. This led to roles in the show Freshman Dorm and in the film My Boyfriend's Back. Fox's big break came with a regular role on the show Party of Five, in which he played Charlie Salinger, the eldest of five orphans and the head of the family. The show proved to be a success, and it ran for six years, ending in 2000. After briefly appearing as the lead of the short-lived show Haunted, Fox was cast on the television show Lost as Jack Shephard.

In between his time spent acting on the show, Fox was able to star in several films. The first of these, We Are Marshall, premiered in 2006, and was followed the next year by Smokin' Aces (in which Fox had a minor role), and then in 2008 by Vantage Point and Speed Racer, both of which featured major roles for Fox. Fox also appeared as the host in the December 2, 2006 episode of Saturday Night Live. In March 2009, Fox announced Lost would be his last television show. [1]

On Lost

In 2004, Fox auditioned for the role of Sawyer. However, the producers thought that he would be a better fit as Jack, a role which had been reworked from the original draft of "Pilot, Part 1", in which Jack was to be killed, to become the principal male lead for the series. Fox successfully auditioned, and was cast as Jack.

For his role as Jack Shephard, Fox was nominated for a Golden Club, won the 2005 Satellite Award, and shared the 2006 Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series. Fox has also claimed that he is the only actor out of the main cast to know how the show ends, stating that "I do know how the show's going to end, I know what the last images will be." [2]
