Christopher was only four months old when his father was gunned down in 1997 at the age of 24.
In the December issue of Interview magazine, Christopher says, "My mum told me some of the stuff he used to do. Like how he rubbed his nose sometimes. And then I got some of my character’s scenes six or seven months before we actually shot the film, so I went over that stuff a lot." He was even told to tap into his own feelings for the father he never knew, to help him get emotional in scenes. He says, "My acting coach said I should think about if he was alive, how I miss him, and I really got into it."
Christopher also has plans to follow his father’s footsteps once he finishes school. He adds, "I’ll probably go into rap. But I want to go to college. And I want to graduate and study film."
Sounds like Christopher has a great head on his shoulders! Check out the trailer below. It looks really interesting!
