Christopher Hopkins

Lead Producer

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.

Q&A with Christopher

What do you do at Liquid Violet/what does your job title mean?

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!

What’s the best part about your job?

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.

What is your biggest work-based accomplishment that you are really proud of?

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.

What led you to this career?

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! 

What’s one thing that you’ve never done that you would like to do?

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.

If you could have an unlimited supply of one thing, what would it be?

Surely everyone says money? If not, then biscuits.

Doctor Who offers to take you back in time – what historical figure do you most want to meet?

I’d love to meet my Grandad on my mother's side. He was a professional Saxophonist and he died before I was born.

If you could become an overnight expert in something, what would it be?

DIY – I’m absolutely beyond useless at it.

Any hidden talents?  

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!         

What’s one song that you have completely memorized?

Will Smiths 1997 cover of “Just The Two of Us”. It’s up there and I don’t know why.

What form would your daemon take?

A cat. Eat, sleep, repeat is the dream.

What could you give a presentation on with no advance warning?

“Biscuits and Tea: Perfect Dipping Strategies”

Which team member would you like to swap places with for a day?

Perhaps Jareth? It would be nice to feel tall for a day and see how the world looks from up there.

What was your very first job?

I used to work in the Dairy department of Safeways (before it got taken over by Morrisons). Humble beginnings….

What other completely different job would you like to do if you weren’t doing this one?

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.

What is a job that you would be terrible at?

Fashion Designer. All my outfits have been picked and approved by my wife in advance.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?

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.

What fictional place would you like to visit?

Maybe Hobbiton? I’d fit right in!
