Biography

Date of Birth 23 April 1960, York, Pennsylvania, USA Birth Name Craig Eric Sheffer Height 6' 2" (1.88 m) Trivia Graduate of York Suburban High School, York, Pennsylvania Brother of writer Hogan Sheffer. His hobbies are: photography, writing, and being outdoors. In 1975 at the age 15, began competing in regional and state high school drama competitions. In 1980 he moved to NYC at the urging of his girlfriend. But shortly after arriving he broke up with his girlfriend, lost his job and spent several weeks homeless - which included sleeping under the marble staircase in Grand Central Station. He later got back on his feet and found an agent and began getting acting jobs in commercials. In 1985 he suffered what he described as "a nervous breakdown", and was unable to leave his home for several months. In 1990 he claimed that he was previously diagnosed with cancer which subsequently went into remission after filming El río de la vida (1992). He went to East Stroudsburg State University in East Stroudsburg, PA, to play football. He was at college for two years before he dropped out to pursue acting. He has a daughter (with Gabrielle Anwar) Willow Anwar. She lives in Los Angeles and he goes back there as often as he can to spend time with her. However, in the early 1990s, Reyn Hubbard reportedly made several claims to have been the father of Willow Anwar. Hubbard met Gabrielle Anwar at a party. Hubbard and Gabrielle Anwar's relationship was bitter and did not end well. His mom's name is Anna. He was diagnosed with cancer shortly after filming Razas de noche (1990) in England. He decided to take time off to himself after the diagnosis and traveled around Europe and India. He finally returned to the US only two weeks before beginning filming on Desierto azul (1991). Is very interested in music and enjoys writing songs and playing the guitar.
