Interesting fact………. Chris has enjoyed many years as an amateur actor and recently played the part of Augustus Gloop in a local production of ‘Charlie and the Chocolate factory’, when asked by a the Monmouth Herald how he got into character he replied “ Its difficult playing an obnoxious, fat pie eating idiot but my cricket team have been kind to me and showed me how it should be done, they are a real inspiration to me”
Chris continues to tread the boards and hopes one day to be as good as Rob Chase.
