Christopher Fairbank's life is as dramatic and surprising as any movie the veteran English actor has been in. His teenage years were spent at a juvenile hostel in Liverpool, where he decided to pursue a lifelong dream of acting, eventually going on to study at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts. By the time he landed his breakout role as Liverpudlian migrant worker Albert Moxey in the hugely popular series "Auf Wiedersehen, Pet" (ITV, 1983-2004), the rough and tumble actor had already amassed a resume that included stints on such TV shows as the legal drama "Z Cars" (BBC, 1962-1978) and the dystopian serial "Noah's Castle" (ITV, 1980), as well as the feature film "Agatha" (1979), centered on the mystery writer's unsolved disappearance in 1926. The next decade ushered in a string of well-known turns for the heavily pockmarked actor, including small but memorable roles in "Batman" (1989), "Alien 3" (1992), and "The Fifth Element" (1997). Beginning in the 2000s Fairbank branched out into voice acting with video games such as "Prisoner of War" (2002), and portrayed a hardened detective on the BBC mini-series "Five Daughters" (2010), before being cast as the title hero's uncle in "Jack the Giant Slayer" (2013). Who knew that being labeled a juvenile delinquent would turn out to be just what Christopher Fairbank needed?
