Chris’s inspiration to become an actor arose from Strindberg, to be precise an early 90’s National production of “The Father” he went to see whilst studying “A Level” Theatre Arts. The moment he left the theatre he knew he wanted to become an actor.
Next step for Chris was drama school. He was awarded a scholarship to attend a 3 year accredited course at ALRA. His numerous achievements whilst studying at ALRA included being the winner of “The Stage” Best Fight Scene 1998 and he also won a lead role starring with Ian Holm in an award winning radio commercial for meningitis awareness.
Just before graduation Chris won yet another lead role in a short film “The Balloon” playing the psychotic punk thug Wayne Grumble and was personally congratulated on his performance by Derek Jacobi at the screening.
Since then Chris has continued working in various forms within the entertainment industry including an open air tour of Shakespeare’s “Othello” winning a best actor award for his role as Iago and the role of serial killer Peter Kurten on stage.
He is a versatile and above all believable actor able to portray complex characters with sympathy as well as performing slapstick comedy to a very high standard. His comedy ability led to him being offered the role of MR SMASH, in CBBC'S award winning program The Dog Ate My Homework, which is filmed in front of a live audience.
