IN THE SPECIAL FORCES, BECAUSE THERE ARE A MILLION DIFFERENT THINGS GOING ON, YOUR HEAD IS ALWAYS ON A SWIVEL. BE AWARE OF THOSE AROUND YOU.”
Jason Carl Fox “Foxy” is a former Royal Marine Commando and Special Forces Operator who is mostly known as one of the lead directing staff from Channel 4’s SAS: Who Dares Wins.
Foxy joined the Royal Marines at the age of 16 and went on to serve in the SBS (Special Boat Service) where he served a total of 20 years for his country. Jason has been involved in planning and leading operations in some of the most hostile environments in the world and has conducted operations, including hostage rescues; land and maritime counter-terrorism; counter-insurgency; surveillance; protective security and bodyguarding and counter-narcotics missions.
Jason is also trained as a Special Forces swimmer and diver, explosives expert, Special Forces dog handler and jungle survival expert.
SAS: WHO DARES WINS
After leaving the Special Forces, Jason went into the TV and Film industry. Initially, he used his depth of experience from his time in the military to support production crews working in environmentally challenging and hostile areas, such as the jungle, the Arctic and the desert. During this period, Jason was part of the team of divers who found the lost treasure of Captain Kidd – one of the most prolific pirates of the 17th century – just off the coast of Madagascar.
After Joining SAS: Who Dares Wins in 2015 Jason went on to create his mini-series ‘Inside The Real Narcos’ in which he dives into the lives of the real Narcos running the drug trade in Mexico, Columbia and Peru. To this day Foxy is still an integral part of the hit Channel 4 show SAS: Who Dares Wins alongside Ant, Billy & Ollie. The show returns usually twice per year with one civilian version and one celebrity, where Foxy can be found putting some of the UK’s celebs through their paces. “SAS Who Dares Wins” has fast become one of Channel 4’s most popular series and has now been renewed for a total of 6 series.
Foxy operated alongside ThruDark Co-Founders Staz & Louis in the most challenging and harsh operations, he now helps with the testing and development of ThruDarks latest products ranges.
