  Summary

  Biography  

 early life
McMahon was born in Sydney, Australia, the second of the three children of Billy McMahon, MP and future Australian Prime Minister, and his wife Sonia McMahon, a former occupational therapist and fashion icon. He has an older sister, Melinda, and a younger sister, Deborah. McMahon has Irish ancestry.

McMahon was educated at Sydney Grammar School, a private boys school. He briefly studied Law at the University of Sydney and Economics at the University of Wollongong, but this bored him and he started a successful modeling career. Because of this, he became known in the fashion capitals Milan, New York, Rome, and Paris.

In 1994 he married Australian singer and actress Dannii Minogue. After only a year the marriage ended and the pair divorced.

He has a daughter, Madison, by Brooke Burns.

 career
In addition to a career as a fashion model, including a jeans commercial for Levi Strauss, McMahon began an acting career on Australian soap Home and Away, playing the soldier Ben Lucini (1989–1991). McMahon was one of several Home and Away cast-members to star in a stage musical about the soap, which toured the UK in 1991. Adam Willits, Sharyn Hodgson (who played his on-screen wife, Carly), Mouche Phillips and Justine Clarke also starred. Shortly afterward, he moved to the United States, and took voice classes to lose his Australian accent.

He then appeared in the film Wet and Wild Summer! in 1992, and following this he appeared in his then soon-to-be wife Dannii Minogue's music videos for her 1993 hits "This Is It" and "This Is The Way". His first role on American television was on the daytime soap opera Another World, playing Ian Rain from 1993 to 1995. He also went on to play Dr. Michael Walsh in the movie Magenta in 1996, Sheriff Hayes in In Quiet Night in 1998, George Simian in the psychological thriller Chasing Sleep in 2000, and David Cameron in the made for TV movie Another Day in 2001.

From 1996 to 2000, he starred in all four seasons of the NBC drama Profiler as Agent John Grant. Following this, McMahon joined the cast of the WB's supernatural hit show Charmed, playing the conflicted half-demon/half-human Cole Turner from 2000 to 2003, and returned for one episode in 2005.
Following Charmed, McMahon's next role was playboy plastic surgeon Christian Troy on the FX series Nip/Tuck. He was nominated for the Golden Globe award for "Best Actor in a Television Series – Drama" in 2005 for his performance.

During this time, McMahon also portrayed supervillain Doctor Doom in Fantastic Four, the 2005 film adaptation of the comic book series of the same name. The film was a box office success, and McMahon reprised his role as Doom in the sequel in 2007.

He also appeared alongside Sandra Bullock in the 2007 supernatural thriller Premonition. McMahon will co-star with Milla Jovovich in Julien Magnat's thriller Faces in the Crowd.
