1. He Was Raised In South Africa

2. He’s Been In The Industry For Almost A Decade
Some people may think that his role on Black Sails was his debut appearance, however, he had actually been in the industry for a few years at that point. He made a small appearance in the 2011 film, Blue Crush 2, which, according to IMDB, marked his first on screen appearance.

Chris has built a strong fan base since throughout his career, but unfortunately that hasn’t translated very well to his social media presence.
