His parents' families were Jewish, and had come to Israel from Germany and the Netherlands. He has an older brother, a sister, and a younger half-sister. 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 for security for El Al (Israel's airline) in Germany.
Oded Fehr's screen appearances include 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).
