Christopher: (on his 2-year hiatus from "Guiding Light") I went to California, got bored with the business, the auditions... starting over.
Christopher: People might say that I'm a pain in the [pauses] and I guess I am when it comes to discipline. Acting is a calling and I get angry when others aren't prepared.
Christopher: (about soap operas) I like them! They provide work for actors and can even be instructive.
Christopher: I became an actor because I liked the process, not the adulation.
Christopher: I go after what I want, have strong opinions, and I am very focused. I don't believe in wasting energy.
