9. Before Fame
Before hitting it big in Hollywood, Chris began his acting career by appearing as King Arthur in the series Guinevere Jones. He went on to have small parts in Neighbors, Marshall Law, The Saddle Club and Fergus McPhail before starring in the popular Australian soap opera Home and Away. This led to his appearance on the fifth season of Dancing With the Stars Australia in 2006, but was eliminated after six weeks. At the time, acting wasn’t exactly paying the bills and, among other odd jobs, Chris once worked at a Pharmacy cleaning the breast pumps that were rented out to new moms.
