Christopher Peter Redman was born in Brampton, Ontario, Canada on January 1st, 1980. He is the eldest of the four Redman children and takes his older brother responsibilities seriously. He began acting in The Canadian Youth Academy when he was seven years old under the tutelage of Beverly Lundy. The Academy was heavily focused on classical theater and introducing young people to the works of writers like Shakespeare, Ibsen and Tennessee Williams. Christopher performed in dozens of their productions over a ten year stay. During his last 4 years at the academy he began taking a speech and drama course at Trinity College, Cambridge, via correspondence during the summers. Five years later, at age eighteen, he graduated with honors. He then moved to Toronto and began working steadily in film and television on productions like “Mistrial” with Bill Pullman, “Road to Avonlea”, “The Magian’s house” and “K-19 – the Widowmaker” with Liam Neeson and Harrison Ford. In 2002 Christopher moved to Vancouver and found success in several independent films (22 Hands, Timbuktu) and studio films (Catch and Release, 88 Minutes). For over ten years Christopher has worked with some of film’s biggest and most dynamic actors, they include Kim Basinger, Amy Brenneman, Beau Bridges, Bradley Cooper, Kirsten Dunst, Harrison Ford, Luis Guzman, Udo Kier, Liam Neeson, Al Pacino, Bill Pullman, Ian Richardson and Peter Sarsgaard. He is also a founding member of the Amazing Posse Film Festival in Toronto.
