Chris Potter once hoped to be a professional athlete, but discovered a love of acting in school. He never really considered pursuing it as a career. Eventually he worked as a stockbroker in Europe and in Canada, while continuing to perform in amateur theater productions. He started his professional career when Martha Henry cast him to be part of a production of Biloxi Blues where he won rave reviews. Potter played David Carradine’s son and crime fighting partner in Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, which debuted in 1993 and aired for four seasons. He also starred as a hard-hitting police sergeant for three years in USA Network`s Silk Stalkings, where in addition to acting he directed some episodes. In 2005 he received a Gemini nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Supporting Role in a Dramatic Program or Mini-Series, for his performance in Sex Traffic. Potter is is a member of the Hollywood All-Stars, a hockey team made up of people in the entertainment industry who play against local alumni and celebrity teams to raise money for local charities.
