first time it just cracked me up!
ST: Have you always wanted
to be an actor?
Chris: Yes, I always
wanted to be, but I didnít tell anyone. I was too scared. I never
really considered being in the business until after I got out of school. I
actually walked down the street and saw this movie and I thought, ĎI have to
do that,í and I started taking acting classes at a good theatre. People
said that I had potential . . .

shorts. I have close to 100 pairs!
ST: Whenís your
Chris: July 20,

Chris: I love the
outdoors. I love to go hiking and camping.
ST: Tell us about your
hometown of Toronto, Canada.

ST: Where do you see your
career in 10 years?
Chris: Iíd like to be in
film . . .
ST: What do you look for
in a girl?
Chris: Someone who is
their own person, someone with an incredible personality, someone beautiful, one
of the guys - who wears jeans and T-shirts, someone with a sense of humor who I
donít have to hide a thing from.
ST: Are you romantic?
Chris: Yes, well somewhere
in between. I usually have long relationships. Iíd love to share
my life with someone, someone who I can hang out with and be best friends
with. Thatís important!
ST: Do you want a family
Chris: Down the road,
definitely. I would love to have it all!
