- "I love it man, it’s exciting because most of my movies are rated R and I go in there and I’m trying to make kids laugh, so it’s cool to do a PG movie. And you can go in wearing sweatpants and do it."
- ―Christopher for Hypable about his role in HTTYD2
Christopher was born in LA, California to a Polish father and a Jewish mother. His great-grandfather was producer Charles Mintz, and a great-great uncle of his is animation producer George Winkler, so he's got entertainment in his blood. He graduated from El Camino High School in LA in 2007.
