His favorite movie of all time is The Thing Called Love and River Phoenix is his idol. Fernandez has stated that if he were not acting, he would have majored in Spanish, moved to South America, and run a banana farm or worked in construction, because he is good with his hands; or, if he was better at it, a writer.

Fernandez was born in Ukiah, California. His father is of half Portuguese and half Russian-Jewish descent, whereas his mother has British ancestry. He has a younger sister and a brother.

Before becoming an actor, Fernandez began working as a dishwasher, and an American Apparel catalog model hand-picked by the company's CEO, Dov Charney, for his then-fledgling company. Later arriving in Los Angeles, he asked Charney for a job and was hired as a stock boy. His first acting gig was a commercial for First 5 California that was directed by Vadim Perelman.
