Julian Dana William McMahon (/ˈdʒuːliən məkˈmɑːn/; born 27 July 1968) is an Australian actor and model.

McMahon won recognition for his roles in Television dramas, in portrayals of Ben Lucini in the award-winning Australian soap drama Home and Away, and as Christian Troy in the award-winning American drama Nip/Tuck, as well as his appearance in films with leading and supporting roles, in films such as the romantic-drama Magenta (1996), the action-superhero Fantastic Four franchise (2005 & 2007), the action-comedy film Red (2010), and the horror-thriller Bait (2012). However, his work in television with Nip/Tuck garnered him more success. The series won an Emmy Award and a Golden Globe. McMahon played the lead role in Nip/Tuck alongside Dylan Walsh throughout the entire series' run.


McMahon jokingly noted in an interview 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.

McMahon married former Home and Away co-star Dannii Minogue in January 1994, and divorced in mid-1995, after less than two years of marriage. Referring to the divorce, Minogue stated that it was her "biggest regret and biggest downfall", and later posed nude in an Australian edition of Playboy, commenting "I just had a marriage break-up. Most women go to the hairdressers – I did Playboy. I chose the photographer, the location, what I did or didn't want to wear and everything else about the pictures. I found it a really liberating, empowering experience". The edition featuring Minogue sold out in under four days and became one of the best-selling editions in Australia. After their divorce, Minogue had a very public falling out with McMahon's mother when she (Lady McMahon) said that "[Minogue] was not worthy of marrying into her family".

In 1999, McMahon married former Baywatch star Brooke Burns. They have one child but divorced in 2001. In 2014, at Lake Tahoe, California, McMahon was married for the third time, to his girlfriend of 11 years, Kelly Paniagua, after having been engaged for six months.
