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 addition to a career as a fashion model, McMahon began an acting career on Australian soap Home and Away, playing the soldier Ben Lucini (1990-1991). 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.
He then appeared in the film Wet and Wild Summer! (a.k.a. Exchange Lifeguards) 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 (a.k.a. You Belong to Me Forever) 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 then joined the cast of the WB's supernatural hit show Charmed, playing the demonic Cole Turner from 2000 to 2003. The character was killed off in the 100th episode of the series, but returned for a one-off guest appearance in the 150th episode in 2005.
Following Charmed, McMahon landed a co-starring role on the FX series Nip/Tuck as playboy plastic surgeon Christian Troy. He was nominated for the Golden Globe award for "Best Actor in a Television Series - Drama" in 2005 for the role.
During this time, McMahon also landed the role of 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.
McMahon was also allegedly one of the names being considered for the role of James Bond in the film Casino Royale, though the part ultimately went to Daniel Craig.
He has more recently appeared alongside Sandra Bullock in the 2007 supernatural thriller Premonition.
McMahon has been married and divorced twice, first briefly, to Australian singer and actress Dannii Minogue and subsequently to American actress Brooke Burns, with whom he had a daughter, Madison Elizabeth born June 9, 2000. He has also been linked to Shannen Doherty, his co-star from Charmed.
