Christian Potenza


B: December 22, 1972 in Ottawa, Ontario

Chris Potenza is often referred to as “that guy” because people remember his face but not necessarily his name. And he is seen everywhere. If he isn’t acting in a series, then he’s in a TV commercial that has everyone talking. For example, Potenza was the guy who says, “Let’s get naked” on the crowded subway in the Tostitos commercial. Or, he’s the hoarse-voiced golfer who yells, “Fore!” on the golf course in the spot for Halls lozenges. Christian graduated from George Brown Theatre School in 1997 and began working almost immediately.
