Christopher Marquette was born in Stuart, Florida, on October 3, 1984. He began modeling at the age of four in Dallas, Texas. He landed his screen acting debut at the age of eight, starring as the son of 米拉·索维诺 in 毒欲陷阱 (1995). He played a lead in 真情相约 (1998) with the legendary 格里高利·海因斯 and on Broadway as Tiny Tim. His other big screen credits include 只是朋友 (2005), The Girl Next Door (2004) and Freddy vs. Jason (2003).
On the Emmy-nominated and People's Choice Award-winning Joan of Arcadia (2003), Christopher brought romance. He starred as Adam Rove, the love interest for Joan (爱波·塔布琳). The romantic connection between Adam and Joan was enchanting. Christopher breathed life into Adam Rove's character--Adam was an artist, down to earth, vulnerable, loyal and honest. The touching and thunderous silences between Adam and Joan created and stirred the kind of romance every girl and many grown women long for, tossing Marquette's hat into the teen heartthrob arena. His small-screen credits include recurring roles on Showtime's Huff (2004) and Lifetime's Strong Medicine (2000). He guest-starred on ER (1994), 7th Heaven (1996), Judging Amy (1999) and Touched by an Angel (1994).
Christopher starred in 美国武器 (2005), released at 2005 Toronto Film Festival. He stars with 贾斯汀·汀布莱克, 莎朗·斯通, 布鲁斯·威利斯 and rejoins 埃米尔·赫斯基 in the 尼克·卡萨维蒂-directed 阿尔法狗 (2006), premiering at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival. The story is inspired by the real-life story of Jesse James Hollywood, a drug dealer who became the youngest fugitive ever on the FBI's Most Wanted list. Christopher plays Keith Stratten, a member of Jesse's drug posse. He completed filming an independent film "Graduation and The Invisible" (Spyglass Entertainment). Christopher has been cast as the lead in Mindfire Entertainment's _Calvin Marshall (2007)_ in the lead role.
Christopher is the oldest of the three Marquette brothers. They began their careers with a boost from their parents. 西恩·马奎特, the youngest, says his brother Christopher is his inspiration. Sean stars in 女孩梦三十 (2004) and has a recurring role in Still Standing (2002). The Marquettes enjoy helping each other for upcoming roles. The middle brother, Eric Marquette, starred on Desperate Housewives (2004), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation (2000) and Malcolm in the Middle (2000).
Acting is self-exploration for Christopher. He works at bringing his audience an original piece of work every time he performs. What makes Christopher different from other actors is his keen observation of people. 爱德华·诺顿, 彼得·萨斯加德, 菲利普·塞默, 丹尼尔·戴 have all influenced him.
Christopher believes he is blessed with all of the opportunities within the entertainment industry. He donates his time to the Sunshine Foundation, the Cancer Society, Special Olympics and Pediatrics AIDS. Christopher lives with his family in Los Angeles.
