Christopher became inspired to join the acting profession after playing Othello at school and falling in love with his Desdemona. Rose Bruford College (1966-69) followed and from there a string of formative rep productions and a year in the original production of 'Fiddler on the Roof'. However, it was a contract with the RSC in 1975 that introduced him to a different way of working. 'The Courage to Fail' was a mantra of the late Buzz Goodbody, founder of the RSC`s The Other Place at Stratford-Upon-Avon and was good preparation for the years that followed. Those years included the usual round of TV, Commercials and Voice Over work and another twenty productions with The Royal Shakespeare Company, including the present 'Imperium' (2017/18) playing Pompey. Along the way, Christopher received a Helen Hayes Award (Washington DC) for Best Supporting Actor in The Globe`s touring production of 'Hamlet', playing Polonius and The Gravedigger. But above all, he is most proud of having worked with, and learned from, the many actors and directors, sung and unsung, that were and still are, to be found in repertory companies throughout the land. Christopher`s play for one woman, 'Florence Flo Smith-Now and Then' starring Ursula Mohan, can be seen from time to time in small theatres around the country.
