Christopher trained at Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and subsequently with Philippe Gaulier in Paris. He has appeared on TV and film in a range of dramas spanning the centuries, from Wolf Hall to Pride and Prejudice to Mrs Dalloway, right up to present-day series such as Judge John Deed, and moving into the future with Survivors. On stage, Christopher most recently enjoyed playing Dr Paramore in The Philanderer at the Orange Tree Theatre. Other recent theatre includes playing Tony Blair in a re-imagining of the run-up to the Iraq war, Our Town at the Almeida and a one-man version of Dr Faustus at the Rose Bankside. Christopher has performed at the National Theatre – playing Marlow in She Stoops to Conquer, and creating the role of Toby Cole alongside Judi Dench in David Hare's Amy’s View. Further theatre performances include appearances in the West End, with the RSC, at the Abbey in Dublin, on tour in America and around the world, and at theatres across the country, including Sheffield Crucible, Colchester Mercury, Chichester Festival, Birmingham Rep and in Bristol, playing Puck, Caliban and Ariel (pretty much all at once) and Edgar (in a separate season) with Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory, as well as lead roles in The Comedy of Errors, The Importance of Being Earnest and Paradise Lost at Bristol Old Vic
