Christopher recently appeared in the Hope Bradford Passion Play and has just been
accepted into the Red Ladder Theatre Company for their up coming 40th Anniversary
production Where's Vietnam? by Alice Nutter.
He made his stage debut in Paper Zoo's production of Twelfth Night and has since gone
on to a variety of work including Extra work, his first film role (in Austin Bros. Films
production 'Cricket', due 2008), as well as supporting roles in An Evening With Joe
Orton and Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (both further Zoo productions, so it is
entirely their fault for encouraging him).
Joking aside he has never found anything but support and encouragement from the
Paper Zoo crew. He has learned a lot from his fellow actors there and would like to thank
them for the enjoyment, experience and education they have been a part of; he wouldn't
be where he is now without them.
He also realises how "thespian" that last part reads - but unfortunately it's the truth.
Chris is a big fan of Sir Alec Guinness, Patrick Stewart, Alastair Sim, Cary Grant, Sir
Maurice Mickelwhite ("Not a lotta people know that") and let us not forget Paper Zoo
patron BRIAN BLESSED!!!
His favourite roles so far have been Pavel Ganchev in Cricket (too much 60's and 70's
spy fiction has given him an affection for dodgy russian accents), Scrooge's Nephew in A
Christmas Carol (jovial buffoon = not much of a stretch! ;) and the silently sycophantic
Brother Blessed in An Evening With Joe Orton (Ben being such an easy-to-adore figure
Chris enjoys film, TV, music, theatre and going out in his spare time. He is also an avid
supporter of street art, street theatre and puppetry, his sister Beka performs in 'Frolicked'
her self-founded street theatre company , and he has enjoyed various productions by
Green Ginger, Faulty Optic and Pickled Image, among others.
