Cristian was born and raised in central London.  After slipping through the cracks as a teenager, he left school at 16 with no qualifications. While working odd jobs he passed through several youth theatres including the Royal Court, and the Young Vic before finding the group at Riverside Studios where he finally settled and began to find his feet. It was from plays put on there that he was first cast in television.  At 19 he started his own theatre company with school friend Jesse Lawrence and from one of their own productions got his first agent and then started to work more regularly as a professional. Jesse and Cristian went on to write and perform several plays before turning to film making and they continue to collaborate in that medium to this day. Cristian’s first recurring part was on the ITV series Wycliffe but his breakout television role was as the team captain in Footballer’s Wives. His jump into film came with his lead role in the big screen adaptation of Dead Babies, the cult classic Martin Amis novel alongside Olivia Williams and Paul Bettany. Since then Cristian has starred in and played supporting roles in numerous feature films such as Highlander: The Source, Tuesday, Mother Of Tears, Perfect Hideout, DJ, We Still Steal The Old Way and LUCID. He can also be seen in his third outing as director, I Made This For You which is scheduled for a theatrical release in the UK in late 2020, or catch him in the London based, US crime series GUILT, which you can binge right now on Netflix
