Christopher "Chris" Winters appears very early on in the game when your main character attends a nightclub shortly after joining Hollywood U in the quest "Ready, Set, Pitch!". You meet Chris at the wrap party that Ethan manages to get you into, Chris attracts the attention of the barman and kindly buys you a drink.
Chris returns later when he offers to loan you his beach house to shoot a music video for Lisa and again during the shoot of the video, where he offers to star in the video. Chris is either really impressed or really disappointed by how you leave his house looking after the shoot. From the moment he is introduced to your character, he shows an obvious attraction.
Character's Backstory Edit
Before becoming a big name, he lived on a farm in Missouri. When Chris was just starting out, he starred in some commercials for cat food. He admits that they were actually terrible, and he kept forgetting the cat's name. ("Mr. Fluffkins? Mr. Flufftail? Something like that.") He also was an underwear model in many Wal-Mart commercials before he got big. It is revealed while dating him that he was previously married to one of his former co-stars named Sofia Morena while he lived in Italy.
Chris grew up in "Smalltown USA", in a rural town in Missouri. His older brother used to drive him to see movies when he was young, which is where his love for the cinema started. When he was in high school, he worked as a busboy at a restaurant so he could save up for his plane ticket to L.A. and (presumably) college. Since it was a small town, Chris is still attached to the close-knit community, and chooses to take your character there to visit on your third date.
Chris's first chance at acting was in a school performance of The Wizard of Oz. However, he got such bad stage fright that when it was time for his first line he instead vomited all over the stage. Embarrassed, he fled and vowed to give up acting. However, by the next day, he'd convinced himself back onto stage. When it was time for his cue, someone in the crowd shouted "Come on, Chris Wizards!" and everyone applauded. He was able to perform without puking that time. The nickname has stuck with him, so everyone from his hometown still calls him that.
Chris's most recent blockbuster is Fireman: Inferno, where he did most of his own stunts.
Personality and Characteristics Edit
Chris is a surprisingly down-to-earth guy for being such a famous movie star. He never forgot his small town roots when he made it big. He is a hopeless romantic, shown when he takes you on many romantic dates if you choose to date him in Amour.
In-Game Description Edit
Chris Winters is the HOTTEST actor in Hollywood... literally! Just ask anyone who saw him in 'Fireman: Inferno'. On top of his killer looks and charming smile, Chris is a loyal friend, thoughtful partner, and the perfect addition to any entourage.
Chris has the second lightest skin and a hair color that is currently unique to him. In the Awards Show quest, it is described that he has deep blue eyes (even though they appear brown). He wears a brown leather jacket with a white buttoned shirt underneath. As your character has reflected on multiple times, Chris is ripped.
Character Relationships Edit
Your Character Edit
Once you unlock Amour, your character can start dating Chris, and later on marry him. His first date is Las Vegas Love, his second date is Italian Romance, his third date is Hometown Heartthrob, his fourth date is Trouble in Thailand, his fifth date is Winters' Storm, the sixth date is London Calling, the seventh date is French Kiss, his eighth date is The Engagement, his ninth date is The Ex Wife, his tenth date is Sofia's Revenge, his eleventh date is The Wedding. The twelfth date is The Honeymoon and his thirteenth date is Marital Bliss (life after you marry Chris).
His Family Edit
Chris is very close to his family. He has an older brother named Sean who is a winemaker and a younger brother named Tyler. Sean was very important to Chris's career as a movie star because he used to drive Chris to the theater all of the time when Chris was a child, instilling him with a love of movies. Tyler is the baby of the family and is currently studying agriculture at college. Both Sean and Tyler want to stay close to home, so Chris's move to L.A. for his movie career is a bit of a sore spot. Chris is very close to his parents; he used his first paycheck to renovate his parents' farmhouse, to thank them for always supporting him.
Chris was married to Sofia Morena, but it didn't last long and they have been divorced since before Chris meets your character. They met through Chris's movie set in Italy, Il Turista Americano, and quickly fell in love. They lived in Rome and traveled the country extensively.
If you choose to marry Chris, you can have your wedding in three different locations. Each location has different options.
Las Vegas Edit
Chris decided to get married in Las Vegas because you had your first date here. The wedding is in a large ballroom with a bar in it. Chris says that you could choose any type of performers for the reception, and also that you could stay in the Honeymoon Suite upstairs.
Chris's Beach House Edit
At Chris' Beach House, you would have a small wedding with just close friends and family, Chris thought you might want to have a beach wedding. And if your MC is a girl you say that you could wear a flowing dress with flowers in your hair. And the sand between your toes with a soft sound of the ocean in the background.
Sean's Vineyard Edit
