Thirty-five minutes from central Denver, 15 minutes from the nearest grocery store, and overlooking the site of the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons production facility, Chris grew up with a fraction of the television and movies his peers enjoy.
Chris attended Dennison Elementary, which typically ranks in the top three schools in the state (academically). When he is filming, Chris attends school on the set of the production.
It was no surprise to Chris' parents when teachers, friends, and family identified him as a natural entertainer. It took some time, however, to act. In early 2005 his mother started the ball rolling. Chris and his dad spent the summer preparing for an amateur competition in Los Angeles in August.
Chris won five silver and one bronze medals in six competitions and attracted the attention of Cutler Management who encouraged him to return to Los Angeles to study, which he did in early December. He was put through what amounted to acting boot camp, a battery of classes from improv to cold-reading technique with the top coaches in Los Angeles. When she felt Chris was ready, his manager introduced him to his agent. A few weeks later, Chris was offered his role in The Last Mimzy.
