Christopher Andrew "Chris" Egan (born June 29, 1984) is an Australian actor probably best known for playing Nick Smith in the Australian soap opera Home and Away for three years. He most recently played David Shepherd on the NBC television drama Kings, a modern retelling of the Biblical story of King David and King Saul.



Egan has appeared in several commercials and did some modelling, but his ability and ambition for acting came out when he performed in the Glen Street production of Les Misérables and West Side Story. He also appeared in the TV soap Home and Away.

He has also been trained in gymnastics at the KICK Performance Group in Sydney. As well as competing in several eisteddfods at an early age, Egan has been able to use his gymnastics skills extensively in the thriller film Crush.[1]

He moved to Los Angeles in 2003.[2] In 2006, he appeared in the film adaptation of Christopher Paolini's novel Eragon. In 2007, he played a small role in the movie Resident Evil: Extinction, the third movie in the Resident Evil series, where he played Mikey, a member of Claire Redfield's (played by Ali Larter) convoy. In the summer of 2009, he shot the movie Letters to Juliet in Italy, with Amanda Seyfried, Vanessa Redgrave and Gael García Bernal. The movie has gone on to great success and has become Christopher's most popular role.

Egan has been cast as the lead in ABC's Poe.[3]

Christopher is currently on a world tour and has visited Canada, Britain, United States, Syria, Lebanon, and is currently in Dubai for a movie shoot of his latest and tour with his girlfriend Amanda Seyfried.[citation needed]
