Once a jobbing actor, Chris swivelled to production without ever relinquishing his thespian nature: he is the single embodiment of both good cop and bad cop, sprightly young boy and jaded old man, Midlands native and drag aficionado. It is with these myriad of bowstrings that he resides as a shrewd consultant of production, striking firm rapport with any life form he encounters.
Indeed, he owes his prolific management skills to the empire of rodents he lovingly reared as a teenager and, for safety reasons, Chris shouldn't really be talked to before midday. Though, in an emergency, he can usually be won over with an offering of cinnamon pastries, banknotes and Emma Watson merchandise.
I’m the Lead Producer for the Games team – managing voice recordings from first introductions to final deliveries. It’s mainly a lot of emails and gallons of caffeine, but there’s a lot of variety and I get to work with loads of different people. Developers, actors, agents, and our own brilliant LV team!
I really love the flexibility and freedom I have with Liquid Violet. I’m in charge of my own time and can manage projects however I see fit. While I’m let loose on projects, I still have the support and expertise of the full team whenever I need it.
It’s hard to pick out a single moment, but I think when a big title gets released, that’s been years of conversations and work – it’s an amazing feeling.
I spent a decade as an Actor, but wanted something more secure (eg, a salary!). I was always interested in voice work, and a keen gamer, so wanted to somehow combine all 3 passions. While it’s a very niche job, it ticks all 3 boxes!
This is a tough one…. I sometimes wish I was a little braver, and perhaps do something extreme like Skydiving – but I like the safety of my bed too much.
Surely everyone says money? If not, then biscuits.
I’d love to meet my Grandad on my mother's side. He was a professional Saxophonist and he died before I was born.
DIY – I’m absolutely beyond useless at it.
I am remarkably talentless! I can whistle through my teeth, and sing Kate Bush’s “Wuthering Heights” in the original key – that’s about as far as my talents stretch!
Will Smiths 1997 cover of “Just The Two of Us”. It’s up there and I don’t know why.
A cat. Eat, sleep, repeat is the dream.
“Biscuits and Tea: Perfect Dipping Strategies”
Perhaps Jareth? It would be nice to feel tall for a day and see how the world looks from up there.
I used to work in the Dairy department of Safeways (before it got taken over by Morrisons). Humble beginnings….
I’ve worked in lots of different roles… but always dreamt of being a Paramedic. I think doing a role that serves the public in such an important way is hugely selfless. I think anyone who works for the NHS is amazing.
Fashion Designer. All my outfits have been picked and approved by my wife in advance.
Obviously gaming (such a cliché!). Or going to the theatre. It’s quite a busy role, so when I’m not working, I like to completely disconnect from work and just chill out. I also love an afternoon tea and re-runs of Drag Race.
Maybe Hobbiton? I’d fit right in!
