Born in Olean, New York to a Irish-American parents, Fahey was one of thirteen siblings. At ten years old, his family moved to Buffalo, New York State where he went to Father Baker’s High School. However, at 17 he decided to leave home, hitchhiking to Alaska. Then he went to work on an Israeli kibbutz, and backpacked through Europe.

At 25, he received a full scholarship to dance at the Joffery Ballet School, and went on to perform at theaters across the country, including on Broadway. His first acting role came in the form of a soap opera, “One Life to Live” (1984). His first film role came in 1985, when he starred in “Silverado”, which was a box office and critical success, and which really kick-started Fahey’s acting career. In 1986, he famously guest starred on “Miami Vice”, in which he destroyed Sonny Crockett’s Ferrari, but his net worth was rising.

During the early ‘90s, Fahey went on to star in some big movies with some big stars; in 1990 he starred in “Parker Kane” opposite Marisa Tomei, and also starred in “White Hunter Black Heart” with Clint Eastwood that same year. After that, Jeff appeared in “The Lawnmower Man”, with Pierce Brosnan in 1992, and all of these movies served to further his career as well as increasing his wealth. However, it was in 1995 that he found the role that defined him; that year, Fahey was chosen to star as Winston McBride in the new ABC show, “The Marshal” (1995). Although only lasting for two seasons, the show was met with critical acclaim and Fahey himself was particularly praised. This opened up a lot of doors in the industry for Fahey, as well as adding to his net worth.

He starred in movies such as “Apocalypse II: Revelation” (1999), “Planet Terror” (2007), and “Messages” (2007), then in 2008 he was cast in the hit show “Lost”, as Frank Lapidus, and spent three seasons in the show, drawing acclaim from critics and audiences everywhere, and further adding to his wealth – it is one of his best-known roles. After his stint on “Lost” ended, Jeff remained active as an actor, however, he hasn`t had any major roles, but has featured in such films as “Machete” (2010), “Beneath” (2013), “Dawn Patrol” (2014), and “The Hollow” (2016), which have certainly added further to his net worth.

While he is primarily known for his acting, Fahey has also made a considerable humanitarian effort in his life. Fahey spent time in Afghanistan in 2006 and 2007, helping at the American University of Afghanistan. He also launched a project in an effort to help orphans in Kabul. Recently, he has focused on the US Committee for Refugees and Immigrants. Specifically, he has focused on warehousing, when the rights and mobility of refugees is limited by a country.
