2009/10/04 - Actor

This Sunday Cabaret Life Drawing is hosting Chris Saunders, local emerging film and commercial actor!

Saunders is not your average 25 year old. Saunders stands only 4'4 but has the heart of a lion and the ambition of the greatest.  All his life he has wanted to become a successful actor. In 2007 Saunders was cast for the lead role for a local short film contest, "The 48 Hour Film Festival". The requirements for the short film were to shoot a movie from beginning to end in 48 hours. The movie, titled "Phenomenal Me”, won the whole contest, Audience Award, Over-All Best Production, and Saunders won Best Actor.  Since then, Saunders has been on a role, having been in many short films and commercials. You can view some links to his work below. In addition to his acting endeavors, Saunders is the proud father of two little girls, Saniya and Arielle.
