Christopher Jonathan Brown, better known as Chris Barrie (born 28 March 1960), is a British actor, comedian, and impressionist.
He appeared on television sketch show Spitting Image and later starred as Arnold Rimmer in the sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf, as Gordon Brittas in the BBC leisure centre sitcom The Brittas Empire and as Lara Croft's butler Hillary in the Tomb Raider franchise films.
Vintage motorcycles and racing fast cars are two of Barrie's hobbies. In 1995, Chris Barrie's Motoring Wheel Nuts, a showcase for his personal automobile collection, was released. Including a Triumph TR2, MGB-GT, Wolseley 1500, and a Jaguar XJ6 (his everyday vehicle) are among his new classic car collection. He is a contributing writer to Practical Classics.
He has been married twice: first to Monica De Meo from 1987 to 1990, and then to Alecks (1997–present), with whom he has two sons. He lives in Cookham, Berkshire.
Early life and career
Barrie was born in Hanover, West Germany, to a father who was serving in the British Army and attended a Methodist College Belfast boarding school in Northern Ireland. He became a grave filler after dropping out of his Combined Studies course at Brighton Polytechnic. On The David Essex Showcase in 1982, he began his television work as a sports personality impersonator.
Since there was already an actor named Chris Brown on the Equity UK charts, he adopted the surname "barrie" as a result. He appeared on Saturday Live as a regular, alongside other famous performers like Fry and Laurie, Rik Mayall, and Ben Elton. Ronald Reagan's voice was featured in Frankie Goes' pop song "Two Tribes," as well as several vocalizations for other tracks by FGTH and Art of Noise. He appeared on the BBC's Carrot's Lib between 1983 and 1984, and he appeared on his own sketch show Pushing Up Daisies (re-titled Coming Next for the upcoming season), alongside Hale and Pace and Carla Mendonça from 1984 to 1985. He appeared in Blackadder the Third ("episode "Nob and Nobility") in 1987, and he appeared in The Young Ones as both an actor and a voice-over.
