McMahon's work in television, particularly with Nip/Tuck and Charmed garnered him more success. The former series won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe Award. McMahon played the lead role in Nip/Tuck, alongside Dylan Walsh throughout the entire series' run. He also played Jonah on Marvel's Runaways. He currently stars as Jess LaCroix on the CBS crime drama FBI: Most Wanted.

Early life

McMahon was born in Sydney, the son of Sir William McMahon, a prominent Australian politician, and Lady McMahon (née Sonia Hopkins), a socialite and fashion icon. His father was a Member of the Australian House of Representatives and a high-ranking minister in the 24-year Liberal Government for many years before Julian's birth; he became the 20th Prime Minister of Australia in March 1971, when Julian was two years old. His mother left their three children in the care of a nanny to be with her husband in Canberra during his Prime Ministership. He has an older sister, Melinda, and a younger sister, Deborah. He is of Irish descent through his father.[1][2]

McMahon was educated at the private, boys-only, Sydney Grammar School,[citation needed] which his father had attended. He briefly studied law at the University of Sydney and economics at the University of Wollongong.[citation needed][which?][when?] McMahon found no interest in his studies, and began a modelling career. He became known as a model in various fashion capitals, such as Milan, London, New York City, Rome, and Paris.

In addition to modelling, he began an acting career in commercials, including one for Levi Strauss jeans. From 1989–91, McMahon starred in the successful Australian television soap opera Home and Away, playing the soldier Ben Lucini, alongside Dannii Minogue, his then future wife (now former wife). He was one of several Home and Away cast members to star in a stage musical about the soap, which toured the United Kingdom in 1991.


He co-starred in 2011 with Milla Jovovich in Julien Magnat's thriller Faces in the Crowd.[3]

Personal life

McMahon jokingly noted in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that his mother [was] "a very scary lady" because she would visit him on the set of his films and patronise him whenever he finished filming a scene.[4][better source needed]
