Murray was born in Pittsburgh but raised in Texas to a mechanic, Fredrick Abraham, and a home-maker, Josephine. His father migrated from Syria during the famine period in the 1920s. His mother had an Italian-American background. To honour his father, Fredrick, Abraham added an ‘’F’’ to his screen name. He began working the film industry from 1971 and his first film was a comedy called They Might Be Giants. He had a continuous workflow of acting parts and voice-over jobs in commercials and other gigs. He also did television roles in an episode of Kojak in 1973 along with an unaccredited role in the movie Serpico.

He also had several small roles in movies like All President’s Men, The Sunshine Boys, The Prisoner of Second Avenue, The Big Fix, etc. He took a break from these small roles from 1978 till 1983 because he was frustrated with the lack of substantial roles. He was disappointed with the response he was getting and he felt like his acting skills were not being appreciated enough. During this phase, he became a house-husband while his wife Kate Hannan took up a job to support their household. Although this change contradicted with the macho ideology, he felt great for it to have happened.

In 1983, he returned to doing movies with a film called Scarface and to voice-overs by giving his voice to the Fruit of the Loom commercials. He gained true appreciation in the year 1984 when he won an Academy Award along with a Golden Globe Award for his role in the movie called Amadeus. That role is still considered iconic but the winning of the Oscar award was considered to have jinxed his career. The gossip was so far spread that many called the situation of facing a failure after an early success the F. Murray Abraham Syndrome. After the Oscar-winning performance, he was seen in a few more highlighted roles like in Mighty Aphrodite by Woody Allen, Star Trek: Insurrection and Finding Forrester.

He also had an unaccredited role in The Bonfire of the Vanities due to some contract issues. Major changes were seen in his career since 2009 when he first appeared on Saving Grace as a guest and then later on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, The Good Wife and Louie. He was also the narrator on the show Nature and narrated around 33 episodes. The highlight of his TV career was when he was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2015 for his role as a black ops specialist in Homeland. Recently he has done movies like Inside Llewyn Davis and The Grand Budapest Hotel. He has two children from his first marriage along with a grandchild.

In the year 1969, this is the place where he met Philippe Labro who offered him a role in the movie "Tout Peut Arriver". Under the guidance of Jean-Laurent Cochet, he studied acting. However, it was the movie "Le Genou De Claire" in the year 1970, in which he had been offered a shrimpy role of an adolescent, in which he collaborated with 'Eric Rohmer', made him famous. He later also wrote with Rohmer in movies like Perceval le Gallois and Les Nuits De La Pleine Lune. He also worked with other directors like Pierre Zucca, Nagisa Oshima, Claude Lelouch, Edward Molinaro and Cedric Klapisch. In 1990, he appeared in the movie "Christian Vincents La Discrete".

He is one of the well-known actors in French cinema, and also in one of his interviews confessed that he is more attached to the theatre and in a very precise manner his very own show, which is now in France and may come to New York soon. Elaine Sciolino called Fabrice Luchini as a French Actor who delicately balances comedy and drama in an Article. He has done 50 movies in which most of were a hit. He played many roles such as that of Percival. His life changing moment which brought him to this silver screen industry came when he was just a teenager and met the director 'Eric Rohmer' and offered a small role in his movie "Claire Knee". It seems that he had mastered himself in balancing the frail mixture between drama and comedy, and so the blend could be seen in his performances. In a romantic comedy by Patrice Leconte's "Intimate Strangers" released in the year 2004 where he played the role of a very successful but desolate tax lawyer who had mistaken for a psychiatrist by an unsatisfied woman who was wanting his help. Luchini is among those French performers, who can move smoothly from stand-up comedy to films and back, but who is not well known outside France. Luchini, a fluid dancer and a singer, once mentioned that he had influenced by James Brown, who he had seen in Olympia at a concert when he was 15. He said that he want to perform in the Comedy Franchise one day. But that theatre acquires actors only with hard-boiled classical edification and vigorous sharpening. He has demonstrated his best to convince the directors to give him an opportunity. He said that he went to the Comedy Franchise because he knew that, the cinema doesn't help an actor to blossom". A performer leads a comfortable and a contended life. He told them that he was passionate about Moliere, about Corneille. He said that please be good, let me in, because I could do very well. He had rudely refused twice. He also indicated that since, the very 18 century, there had been no real intellectual in France. He dismays the veto, even as they agony him. Along with he also promises that he could sacrifice everything for his dream.
