Variance Magazine interview on what drew Chris to his You’re the Worst role:
Oh yeah, I read the script for the pilot and you get the idea that this guy isn’t very nice. I loved it. He’s a messed up person. But then you realize as the show goes on why he’s messed up. So there are all these layers to this guy, and that’s important.
They’re human. They’re representative of how every relationship is different. Not everyone has the traditional sitcom life. They didn’t meet each other and go on a couple of dates, and then maybe you develop feelings for each other. No, relationships don’t always fit into a box. And they personify two problematic people who don’t know how to do the relationship thing.
Interview Magazine on how Chris got the acting bug:
There was an incredible drama teacher at school, sadly she died of breast cancer after we left school, but she was an incredible inspiration for me. I wasn’t doing drama—I was doing subjects that I thought I should do rather than ones I wanted to do or thought I was any good at. She saw me showing off on the playground—doing impressions of other people—and she said to me, “Why don’t you put all that energy to good use and audition for the school play.” So I did and got the lead role in A Midsummer Night’s Dream and I loved it so much. From then onwards there was no looking back.
