Education

About me

Christian admired the art of storytelling in English whilst in High School and excelled in Drama and Theatre Studies during College. Christian gained an Honorary Degree in Acting for Stage and Media at Thames Valley University in 2008. As a trained working actor he has been achieving a steady accomplishment in the Media side of the Industry.

Whilst in University, Christian earned his first professional spell as an actor when he completed 'Tales of the Inoffensive' at the National Film and Television School. Christian has gone on to star in a selective variety of Short Films to aid his acting range and has since realised the types of characters he is best at portraying; sensitive and sinister temperaments. Christian played a Paedophile in 'Joshua', a film about child abuse that received outstanding reviews from The Guardian & The Daily Mail. In the *Award Winning film 'I'm Christian Okoli' Christian played a Homosexual in a film that depicts unfortunate realities. Christian's performance was praised by The Independent, 20th Century Fox UK & Film 4.

Christian won the British Actor of the Month Award (July 2013) for his portrayal in 'I'm Christian Okoli'. Awarded by The British Filmmakers Alliance

In addition Christian has established the personal commitments that help him flourish his potential as an actor; Practice in The System, Method and Meisner techniques. Christian would relish the opportunity to do Theatre work to further heighten his ability.

*Best Drama, Film of the Festival & Audience Choice Award - The Lab Film Festival 2013
