Actor Craig Sheffer is a cancer survivor. Rumor has it that Craig had suffered some form of cancer when he was young. In the end, he recovered and is living a happy life.

But he was diagnosed once again in 1990 while filming for his movie Nightbreed. After the diagnosis, Craig decided to travel around Europe. He returned in 1991.

It was rumored that Craig Sheffer had once faked cancer. It was in 1992 during the filming of A River Runs through it. Since he was accused of bluffing such serious incident, people are hesitant to believe that he actually had cancer in the first place. Craig, however has stated that two years ago he was indeed diagnosed with cancer and it was a traumatic experience for him. He further stated that he didn’t fake cancer but had recovered from it.

According to IMDB, Craig had once had nervous breakdown in 1985. This might have been one of the early symptoms of cancer since he had already recovered from cancer in the first place when he was young and there had not been any sign or symptoms even since. His family interpreted his behavior then as unusual and bizarre.

Having diagnosed with cancer twice in a life time may be too stressful for one to handle. To forget or at least divert himself away from it he had decided to travel around Europe and India.

Craig was in relationship with Gabrielle Anwar, together they had a daughter, Willow in 1993. Their relationship did not work out as they had planned but they still remain good friends till now. Despite being separated, Craig often goes to visit Gabrielle and Willow. Records say that he later dated actress Leigh Taylor Young (2003-2004) until they inevitably decided to break up. The rumor about him getting married to Gabrielle and getting divorced is just a hoax.

Currently, Craig is single. He has never been married but he might be looking for a girlfriend or even a wife but has not revealed about his preference. He stands tall at 1.8m and his female fans describe him as an attractive person.

Craig Sheffer has appeared in dozens of movies and TV shows. He is perhaps most remembered for his role as Keith Scott in the series One Tree Hill that aired from 2003 to 2012. Craig has also made cameo appearances in a few movies.

Craig’s hobbies include traveling, photography and writing.

Before fame, Craig was reported to be a struggling actor. He had come from Pennsylvania and didn’t have any big connections. He made his living by selling newspapers. He slept outdoors and rarely got to eat. His immense dedication and conviction is one of the reason that he is what he is now.

His net worth is estimated to be around $1 million.
