Biography
Christopher Cousins has carved a career by portraying outstanding, diverse characters. This talented theatrically trained actor has an intriguing, dark and captivating screen presence. The depth and soul that Christopher brings to his characters may have its roots in his native birthplace, New York City, or perhaps in the secrets of the Oklahoma territory where he was raised. Regardless, since his first professional role fresh out of Boston University, Christopher has found within himself the ability to morph into the essence of whatever character he portrays. He perfected his chameleon skills as a contract player on One Life To Live (ABC) as Cane Rogan, a con man who pretended to be different people (German film director, Spanish lothario, Irish horse trainer, Arab prince).Christopher is gaining favorable notices as a quality actor from producers, directors and audiences across the country. In his most recent feature film, Wicker Park, an intense psychological romantic thriller, Christopher Cousins is part of an all-star cast including Josh Hartnett, Diane Kruger, Rose Byrne and Matthew Lillard. Christopher stars as Daniel, the provocative and mysterious villain. Daniel is having an affair with Lisa (Kruger) who attempts to escape from him because of suspicions that he murdered his wife. Matthew (Hartnett), a young investment banker, returns to Chicago after having had his heart broken two years earlier by Lisa who suddenly and mysteriously disappeared without a trace. The chase begins.Christopher has many diverse roles to his credit: a sophisticated British businessman in For Love of the Game (Universal); a dedicated, rural veterinarian in The Long Shot: Believe In Courage (Hallmark); an amoral and dangerous hero in Earth Vs The Spider (Columbia Tri-Star); a clueless father in The Opposite Sex (FOX); a dark, disturbed character in Dead Dog (Regent Entertainment); a loving, grieving father in E.R.

(FOX) and The West Wing (NBC).Christopher's dream role is Odysseus, Greek hero of the Trojan War. "I've dreamed of playing Odysseus since I was a boy." His favorite movie is Ran, directed by Akira Kurosawa. Jeff Bridges has inspired him as an actor. Like Bridges, Christopher is selecting quality projects in his own career. Acting is more than a career for Christopher. It takes him "deeper into the realization of himself and awareness of others." He believes that everyday experiences and frustrations fuel his on-screen performances.Christopher donates his time to several community organizations, The Carter Center on Hunger Relief and Housing, The Southern Poverty Law Center, Human Rights Watch and Actor's Fund.
