Chris Heaven in 2019
|Occupation||Actor, singer, artist|
He was born in Turin(Italy) on March 9, 1972, starting his career as an artist in the 80s working on the TV movie Garibaldi: Il Generale (Garibaldi: The General), by Luigi Magni, along with actors like Franco Nero and Kim Rossi Stuart. After some time he worked on a television ad with actress Vanessa Gravina. Despite having studied acting with master Renato Giuliani, he decided to put aside his acting career to dedicate exclusively to music.
He recorded some songs along with artists such as Mats Olausson (Malmsteen), Tracy G (Dio) and Gerald Kloos (Empire). After Von Knorring exited the band, for health reasons, he collaborated on several tribute albums for the American territory for Versailles Records and other labels (see discography) and recorded soundtracks for director Jason D. Morris for "Millennium: Apocalypse", "Hell House: The Book of Samiel" and "Millennium 2: The Dark Inside You" movies.    
In 2008 he met Adrian Sherlock (Australian actor and "Doctor Who" books writer) and after an appearance on his series "Damon Dark" (on Youtube but previously also on Channel 31) he decided to dedicate himself to his own series "Vincent Kosmos: Il Ladro del Tempo" (Vincent Kosmos: The Time Thief) a "Damon Dark"'s spin-off.
This is the first, and longest lasting, Italian sci-fi webseries that uses a "Video to Video" technique allowing the collaboration of actors and Youtubers from all around the world.   Among all the other actors also, unknown at the time, was Kelly Marie Tran, who later appeared as Tico on "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".
The webseries, on a zero budget and without profit, is reviewed by several websites and by Glamour magazine and in 2017 he was allowed to shoot an episode in the "Roswell UFO Museum".
In 2011 he appeared on six episodes of the TV show "Social King" (RAI 2), hosted by Metis Di Meo and Livio Beshir, on youtubers where he stayed "on character" all the time and cuts from the webseries were shown.    
In 2015 he worked on the short movie "Pirati dei Caraibi: La Bussola dei Sette Mari"(Pirates of the Caribbean: Compass of the Seven Seas) playing the part of James H. Barrie (a sort of Captain Hook), and two years later he played the part of mobster "Nat" Jones in the first episode of "Zero: La Serie" (Zero: The Series).
