Chris Durant
Underneath the exterior Chris's passion for acting thrived and after much soul searching Chris decided to take his biggest risk and pursue acting. The training, discipline and extensive hours of studying changed his life forever. Those around him (including his uncle, actor Ron Jeremy) were amazed at the positive yet radical change in Chris and realized he had found his true passion in life. In between his time studying Chris worked as a commercial artist.
 
Chris shares his life with his wife who was his high school sweetheart and four children. He is an avid golfer and enjoys restoring vintage automobiles and playing with his four dogs - one that Chris admits is part human. He also speaks to young children about pursuing their dreams and staying off the streets, a lesson he has learned firsthand.
