A propos de moi
Chris was born in Detroit, MI. With a poet for a mother and a musician for a father, he was destined to be an entertainer. At the tender age of 6, he played the guitar for the first time. By the age of 10, he was effortlessly playing the baritone and tuba which helped him discover his love for performing. He learned at an early age that he had the cunning ability to capture the full attention of an audience. Chris was introduced to modeling at the age of 18 and began runway modeling a few years later. Having the opportunity to work with fresh new designers such as Edmond Andre and Reco Chapple and being photographed by established photographers such as Derek Blanks; Chris has learned many aspects of the business while remaining humble. Often described as creative and witty, he has dedicated his life to perfecting his craft without limiting himself in any one direction. Along with modeling, Chris realized, in his early twenties, he had a passion for acting, writing and fitness as well. He has appeared as an extra in shows such as Big Happy Family, Meet the Browns and the film ATL just to name a few. Determined to no longer appear as an extra, he enrolled at Premier Actors Network in 2009 to help him gain the knowledge of improvisation, cold reads, audition techniques and script writing. Inspired by the likes of Denzel Washington, Zoe Saldana, Tom Cruise, Angelina Jolie, Jon Claude Van Damme and Will Smith, Chris Anthony is motivated to become a professional actor; anxiously anticipating his opportunity to work with talented producers such as Quentin Tarantino and Tyler Perry. His success as a personal trainer, with transforming his clients’ bodies, health and self-esteem, has inspired him to become a spokesperson for fighting obesity. He is also determined to remain heavily involved in the community by creating municipal centers encouraging performing arts in urban districts. Currently residing in Atlanta, GA, his immediate career goals include: landing a role as a main character in a recurring sitcom, winning his first amateur all natural Male Physique competition and distributing his first featured 12-15 month calendar. But his goals do not stop there; Chris is continuing to perfect his talents to one day produce and direct his own television series, movies and commercials for his franchise of wellness facilities and his distinctive line of athletic apparel.
