Fehr was born on in Tel Aviv, Israel, the son of Gila (née Lachmann), a day care supervisor, and Uri/Ury Ernst Fehr, a Jerusalem-born geophysicist and marketing executive. His parents' families are Ashkenazi Jewish, and they immigrated to Israel from Germany and the Netherlands. He trained at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England after taking a very brief drama class in Frankfurt, Germany. He served in the Israeli Navy from 1989 to 1992 and used to work security for the Israeli airline El Al.
Fehr's screen appearances have included the 2001–02 NBC series UC: Undercover, the 2002–03 CBS series Presidio Med, and the 2004 movie release Resident Evil: Apocalypse (he reprised the role in the sequel, Resident Evil: Extinction). He provided the voice of Doctor Fate in Justice League Unlimited, and played Antoine Laconte, a male prostitute, in Rob Schneider's comedies Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo (1999) and Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (2005). He also acted in the American hit supernatural series Charmed, where he played the evil demon Zankou, the chief villain in that series' seventh season.
From 2010 to 2014 he portrayed a recurring character, Mossad Agent Eyal Levin on the TV series Covert Affairs. In 2013, he guest starred in the episode "Shiva" of the 10th season of CBS NCIS as an Israeli Mossad assistant director.
Fehr married Rhonda Tollefson, whom he met at a Los Angeles Opera, on December 22, 2000. The couple has three children: son Atticus (born January 4, 2003) and daughters Finley (born February 26, 2006) and Azelie.
