In 2020, he was listed at number nine on The Irish Times list of Ireland's greatest film actors. Fassbender made his feature film debut in 300 (2006). Early roles include in the HBO miniseries Band of Brothers (2001) and the Sky One fantasy drama Hex (2004–2005). He first came to prominence for playing Bobby Sands in Hunger (2008), for which he won a British Independent Film Award. Subsequent roles include in Fish Tank (2009), Inglourious Basterds (2009), Jane Eyre (2011) and A Dangerous Method (2011). Fassbender gained mainstream success for playing Erik Lehnsherr / Magneto in X-Men: First Class (2011), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016), and David 8 and Walter One in Prometheus (2012), and its sequel, Alien: Covenant (2017). For his portrayal of a sex addict in Steve McQueen's drama Shame (2011), he won the Volpi Cup for Best Actor and was nominated for Golden Globe and BAFTA Award. His portrayal of Edwin Epps in 12 Years a Slave (2013) earned him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

As of 2023, he races in the European Le Mans Series, driving for Proton Competition. He has been married to Swedish actress Alicia Vikander since 2017. Fassbender holds a German passport. He has said that he intended to get an Irish passport "for years and just never got around to it". He speaks German, though he stated that he needed to brush up on his spoken German before filming Inglourious Basterds because "it was a bit rusty". He has expressed interest in performing in a German-language film or play. He grew up as a Catholic and was an altar boy, but now has described himself as a lapsed Catholic, though he says that he still goes to church to light candles. He is a supporter of Liverpool F.C. Fassbender is known for preferring to keep his personal life private. He moved into a property in the Hackney area of London in 1996, and resided there until he moved to Portugal in 2017. In 2010, Fassbender's girlfriend Sunawin Andrews accused Fassbender of two incidents in 2009: dragging her alongside a car and breaking her nose. News reports cited a court petition and a restraining order filed by Andrews. In the court filing, Andrews cited a hospital visit on 29 November 2009 to treat, "a twisted left ankle, blown out left knee cap, and a bursted ovarian cyst" after the alleged incident with the car. Fassbender has not addressed the allegations publicly. In June 2012, Fassbender told GQ magazine that he was dating American actress Nicole Beharie, with whom he had worked on the 2011 film Shame. In December 2014, he began dating Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, with whom he had worked on the film The Light Between Oceans. They married in a private ceremony in Ibiza on 14 October 2017. They later moved to Portugal, where they reside in Lisbon. They have a son, born in 2021.
