Early life and education

Troy Garity was born Troy O'Donovan Hayden in Los Angeles, California, to actress/activist Jane Fonda and activist/politician Tom Hayden. He grew up in Santa Monica.

His parents named him for the Vietnamese resistance leader Nguyen Van Troi and the 19th-century Irish Fenian Jeremiah O'Donovan Rossa. His professional surname, Garity, is the family name of his paternal grandmother. He began acting as a child at Santa Barbara's Laurel Springs Camp for the Arts where he performed commedia dell'arte. He made an uncredited appearance in the film On Golden Pond (1981), trained at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, and became a member of the Academy Repertory Company, performing in a number of stage productions.


Garity is a cousin to Bridget Fonda. His mother Jane Fonda and uncle Peter Fonda are the children of Henry Fonda and New York socialite Frances Ford Seymour. His father is of Irish descent and his mother's ancestry includes Dutch, English, French, German, and Irish.


Garity has appeared in numerous film productions. He played his father in the film Steal This Movie (2000) based on the life of Yippie founder Abbie Hoffman. His portrayal of Isaac Rosenberg in the film Barbershop (2002) proved to be his breakout role, and he reprised it in Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004) and Barbershop: The Next Cut (2016) - though in the latter, his role is significantly reduced to a cameo appearance. He also starred as Harvey in the Danny Boyle/Alex Garland film Sunshine (2007) and as the tormented survivor of a tragic family accident in Lake City (2008).

In 1998, Garity was named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People".
