I had the great privilege of working with Chris from 1987 to 1989 on Friday The 13th: The Series.
From our first meeting, I was struck by his presence. This midwestern kid felt like he was in the presence of royalty and, in fact, I came to realize he was royalty.
The show’s Canadian crew grew up with Chris, watching him on TV or listening to him voice numerous animated characters. I could sense a certain reverence and respect in the way they related to Chris. He was a remarkably versatile actor with a distinguished career as both a voice over artist and an actor in film, television and on the stage. I am sure Chris would be pleased and honored at being remembered by the countless people who are fans of his impressive body of work.
Chris once shared with me a moment that resonates with me to this day. After a lovely dinner at his home, he shared with me an 8x10 black and white photo of a young Chris holding a skull. York's skull. I saw the pride in his face as he looked upon the younger version of himself as Hamlet in that photo. Only the people in the Alley Theatre in 1962 were lucky enough to watch Chris in those performances. How I wish I could have been one of them!
For me, Chris was Royal indeed. He had such a dignity and panache about him, yet always approachable. As an actor, Chris used words and gesture with such clarity, always helping the story move forward. He always carried himself with dignity, and I am thankful to have been in his presence.
Working with Chris was a master class for me.
Few actors master their craft enough to be asked to play the Prince of Denmark during their careers, and few have been as lucky as me to work with such a kind and generous soul.
Goodnight, sweet Prince.
