Christopher comes from Yorkshire, in the north of England. He began acting in 1990 at the age of six, when he first appeared at York Theatre Royal in the musical Oliver! Chris performed there a number of times during his childhood, and after finishing university he returned to become a founding member of the theatre’s Young Actors Company. After two years performing with this Company he was awarded a full scholarship from British newspaper The Stage to train at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts in London. While there he received a commendation for his work, before graduating in September 2011. Only two weeks later he made his professional debut in Two Noble Kinsmen at the Teatro Delle Muse, Rome. Since then Chris has worked extensively in theatre and film, which in 2012 included a previous tour with Vienna’s English Theatre, playing Phileas Fogg in Around The World In 80 Days. Chris absolutely loved his time here, becoming a huge fan of SK Sturm Graz during his stay, and he is thrilled to be performing in Austria for a second time!
