Then, on September 20th 1996, Christopher was working on the TV show Sliders with fellow actor Ken Steadman when tragedy struck. Ken was the driver of a dune buggy with cameras mounted on; Christopher was a passenger when the vehicle flipped over killing Ken and seriously injuring Christopher. It was a life-changing experience. Christopher decided to take a couple of years off and see the world. Since his return, Christopher has enjoyed much success taking roles on popular series such as Beverly Hills 90210, Party of Five and recurring roles on Santa Barbara, The Bold and the Beautiful, Pacific Blue, and Days of Our Lives.
