Since making his professional acting debut at age 17 in Aubrey Mellor's QTC production of Hannie Rayson's Hotel Sorrento, Christopher has worked across the board in television, film and theatre.

The Surgeon is Christopher's fourth production with producer John Edwards, his first being Big Sky in 1997. He then played the principal role of Joey Burke in Fireflies (2003-2004), and has recently played Will in multiple episodes of The Alice.

Christopher has played major roles in several American and Australian television series and telemovies including McLeod's Daughters, Salem's Lot, Flipper, The Lost World I & II, Max Knight Ultra Spy, The Dreaming, Beastmaster, Seconds to Spare, Counter Strike, Fat Cow Motel and Evil Never Dies.

His feature film credits include Scooby Doo, Swimming Upstream, Crocodile Hunter: Collison Course, The Great Raid and most recently The Marine. He has had roles in the short films Dark Heart and The Daughters of Minchenbury.

Christopher has appeared on stage in productions of Romeo and Juliet, The Gift of The Gorgon, Low, A Midsummer's Night's Dream, Hamlet, Skylight, Over The Top With Jim, XPO The Human Factor, Much Ado About Nothing, Clark In Sarajevo and As You Like It and Dark Heart.

Dr Abe Wilson, Anaesthetist

Abraham Wilson is a 34-year-old anaesthetic consultant. He has been working at the children's hospital but is now doing much more work in the adult public system.

Abe is a confident man who is not in a steady relationship. He likes active sports, surfing, skiing and kite surfing and uses his excess cash to fund these hobbies. He is well read.

Abe is an only child brought up by his father, a GP. They are good friends.

Abe doesn't know why he isn't in a relationship. Women find him attractive and he genuinely respects them. He is a good anaesthetist, the more hectic things get, the calmer he becomes. In a crisis he is quietly commanding. He has a sense of entitlement and authority which is attractive.

Abe has an excellent bedside manner, more charming than Eve's. However sometimes he is too black and white. He has an ability to distance himself from upsetting events in a way that Eve can't.

At his best, Abe is noble, at his worst he is a bit arrogant.
