Early Life Born on July 9 th 1961 in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Parents are William Fox and Phyllis Fox. moved several times during my childhood along with my parents, brother, and three sisters.

Family I married the actress Tracy Pollan (who played Ellen, my characters girlfriend, on Family Ties) in 1988. We have four children: son Sam, twin girls Aquinnah and Schuyler, and daughter Esmé Annabelle. Our marriage started with a decision to keep our wedding private as we promised our love for one another. We got married on July 16, 1988 at the West Mountain Inn under a tent on a wooded hillside in Arlington, Vermont.
