Drew about Chris:
"I take a look at my character and the first thing that comes to mind is Puck. I'm very mischievous. When I'm asked a question, I never am able to give a straight answer. I dance around the question and answer a completely different question."
"The character is very mischievous you know, and I like to play games and stuff like that. Like when you think I'm about to do something really evil, I'll do something really good -and when you think I am gonna do something really great and I have a chance to prove to them that I am really there for a good reason, I'll do something really shady. So it keeps the audience guessing, so basically it's trying to get them to trust me without really telling them anything -which is hard to do."
"I think yes, there's a part of me in Chris, but I've had to bring that. It's not like they sat me down and watched how I act and tried to incorporate that into the character. I felt it's been entirely character-driven, and then I've had to bring my personality to it; I'm not bringing the character to me, I'm bringing me to the character."
"As we head towards the end of this season Chris starts to let his guard down and viewers get to see another side of him, which is great. Prior to that he was all business and every action was geared towards saving Wyatt and his family or himself [as seen in the episode The Courtship of Wyatt’s Father]. In these last few episodes, though, he’s taken time to enjoy his family and has come to love them. Of course, Chris still has a huge beef with his father Leo [Brian Krause], which is common in real-life parent/child relationships. We’ve tried hard to make that situation as believable as possible to the audience."
"I'm very mysterious. They're keeping me shrouded in secrecy the entire time. And I’m going to slowly reveal, throughout the season, my character and my motives. So sometimes I'm going to be really good. And sometimes I'm going to be evil. And it's all for the greater good of my purpose that I’m serving. And I'm the Cheshire Cat of Charmed."
"I'm a smart-ass. I specialize in giving the girls the runaround."
"I'm a little bit good, a little bit bad. It's the best kind of character to play – you keep people in suspense."
"I can't divulge too much, but pretty much I come on and I'm the new Whitelighter on the show. You don't know what'll happen with Leo. I just come along and I'm kind of like Puck from Midsummer Night's Dream, very mischievous."
"I'm a lot, a lot, a lot like this guy in real life. I am very mischievous. I'm already having a lot of fun. I mean, it's kind of scary because I am the new guy. But these girls are unbelievably cool - and professional. They made me feel right at home."
"My character is kind of like the Cheshire cat. Just when you think I'm going to do something evil, I'm going to surprise you and do something good and just when you think nothing evil can come of a situation, I'm the one in the back [manipulating] the situation."
"My character is going to go through a "slow reveal." That means, the audience is going to know a lot more me than the girls do. Hopefully, there's going to be this love and hate relationship with the audience. At least, that's what I'm trying to achieve here."
"I guess he (Leo) has a very strong desire to beat the hell out of me. The thing is, he doesn't have any proof, but he has a hunch. Obviously, his hunch is right, but I'm not going to give him anything. Basically, he has all this locked-up aggression. He's just bitter. I'm the new guy. He has all this aggression, and since he sees I'm moving in on his family, he's taking it out on me."
"Whoa! That's a horrible word, 'weasel.' Let's rephrase that. I'm a Cheshire cat, or Puck, very mischievous and very fun. It's not like I'm doing anything really wrong to the point where anyone will hate me. I'm always doing something. I might start a fire here, but I'll put one out over there. I'm always redeeming myself in some form or another. I promise!"
"I just finished episode five, just more of the same thing. It's going to be a slow reveal to the audience in regards to what I'm about, who I am, what my goals are, and why I'm really here. I'm playing it like I know. I have certain ideas. I've built a story in my head."
"As long as I'm keeping the audience and the girls and everyone in suspense, I don't want anyone to know what I'm doing. The only one who knows what I'm doing is me, and possibly Brad. I like being the Cheshire Cat. I love being mischievous. It's so boring to play straight-up."
"Chris is both a good guy and a bad guy. I know that sucks and that that's a ****ty answer, but it's true. There's a part of Chris that is very, very good and a part of me that is mischievous. Chris has an agenda, and I'll really stop at nothing to get my agenda executed. I, as an actor, do know what's going on, but I can't tell you. I've had many conversations with Brad Kern and he basically mapped out my character for me, which was very, very helpful. It helps my acting and it helps drive the show. I use what Brad's told me to the best of my abilities, so I can try to make the right acting choices when I'm playing the part. Things could change. Different realities and different situations can take place and all of a sudden they might have to change the scripts and change the character. But right now I'm playing the character to the best of my abilities based on what I've been given. They're actually revealing my character a little bit quicker than originally planned. You're going to find out a lot about me. I'd say that even before Christmas fans will have a good idea of who I am and why I'm here, but not completely. Chris likes keeping the girls in suspense because it means I've got something over them."
"I'm happy because Chris has the fans' interest. People might get really angry: 'Get Chris off the show! He's ruining everything. Piper and Leo have to be together!' If they're saying that, it means I'm doing my job. If they're angry at me it means I'm executing my choices clearly. But I also want to give them just enough so that they'll like me, or at the least not hate me. So I'm trying to work in enough of both."
"It's always been in the plan to explore and basically reveal to the viewers along with the sisters why my character is really here and what his true agenda is, however, it's going to be a slow process. I'm sure people have been thinking, "OK, exactly who is Chris? What's he doing here? Why did he do something good last week and now this week he's doing something that looks to be bad?' Everyone hates not knowing but deep down they secretly love to be kept in suspense. I promise, though, that audiences will be made privy as to why Chris is here. In fact, we recently shot an episode that reveals a bit of that secret. I'm really looking forward to the next couple of months as there's going to be lots of cool things happening with all our characters."
"As we head towards the end of this season Chris starts to let his guard down and viewers get to see another side of him, which is great. Prior to that he was all business and every action was geared towards saving Wyatt and his family or himself [as seen in the episode The Courtship of Wyatt's Father]. In these last few episodes, though, he's taken time to enjoy his family and has come to love them. Of course, Chris still has a huge beef with his father Leo [Brian Krause], which is common in real-life parent/child relationships. We've tried hard to make that situation as believable as possible to the audience."
"Let's put aside all the demons and magic for a moment and look at the family dynamic among this group of people. Working on those relationships has been a big factor insofar as Chris's development as a character. It's also helped me grow into the role. I feel 10 times more confident and comfortable now than I did at this time last year [March 2003], which was when I shot my very first Charmed episode [the fifth season's Oh My Goddess]. I can see the changes in me when I watch the early stories and compare them to those I've recently done. Chris has gone from being pointed, aggressive, and rather commanding to a somewhat vulnerable guy who is fighting demons both psychological and physical. My character has come to realize the truth about certain issues involving his family and his life. It's been a wonderful coming of age journey and one that's not over yet."
"There's an episode [Chris-Crossed] in which Phoebe [Alyssa Milano] says, 'That is one bitchy Whitelighter,' and the truth is Chris has been bitchy. He's always hounding the girls to get on with vanquishing demons and he backs that up by reminding them that they're doing it to protect Wyatt. Slowly, but surely, though, they learn things about Chris that help explain some of his actions and this changes their opinion of him."
"He and Paige [Rose McGowan] are very much like brother and sister. Most of the time they absolutely love each other but on occasion they will get testy with one another. Piper [Holly Marie Combs] is Chris's soft spot and he would do anything for her. As for Phoebe, she's the most tolerant and lets Chris get away with a lot, but not everything."
"The fans' response to Chris has been amazing. I feel so loved and appreciated, and it makes me happy to know that what I'm doing on the show affects people that much."
"Truth be told, I originally signed on for two episodes as a guest-star, and that was going to be the season finale of last year. And there was the possibility of two more [episodes] depending on how the crowd reacted, how I jelled with the cast, obviously. And then the producers saw the dynamic and they liked what they saw, and they called me over the summer and said, 'Yeah, we're going to pick you up for the whole season.' "
"Leo and Piper didn't know I was their son, but I did. And in real life, I knew, but they didn't. That's actually been the hardest thing. I mean, it's an easy thing for a character because now I have direction. All of a sudden my relationship with Holly and Brian is much different that if I wasn't their son. But it's also been difficult because I couldn't tell anyone, whether it be in interviews or on-set."
"In the show, Leo and Piper didn't know I was their son, but I did, in real life. I knew the story but Holly and Brian didn't. It was difficult because I couldn't tell anyone the secret on or off set. But it was the right thing to do because it would have affected the way Holly and Brian treated me if they'd known."
"I was the only person working on the show, apart from the writers and producers, who knew that Chris was the son of Leo and Piper. They made me swear not to say anything to anyone, because they wanted Brian and Holly, being that they play Leo and Piper, to not know the truth. The producers gave me the confidence to help play the part with the most authenticity possible."
"I loved play Chris. I loved how mischievous he was, how much fun he had. He became such a strong part of my life. There were so many similarities between Chris and myself. He was always in the middle, instigating things, in a good way and in a bad way. It was fun to be the troublemaker."
"So, this was a different Chris. I don't want the fans to have the wrong idea. It wasn't the normal Chris. This Chris wasn't really Chris; he was a guide. It's not like he had my personality. It was very straightforward, more his presence than anything else. So I played it very differently than I had played Chris before. He was an entirely different character, the guide version of Chris. It was a complete 180 from the character the fans were used to. The old Chris always had strong opinions. In the new episode, I was a guide. It was all up to Leo. I actually had that line. I just pointed things out and it was up to Leo to make his own decisions. I was there just to help him along the way and to show him he's not alone. I loved working with Brian. I can't say enough good things about him. He's such a good man. I didn't work with the girls, which was kind of upsetting, but what are you going to do? For the character, the most important relationship was the one with Leo, with his father. For the episode, the character that made the most sense being there with Leo was Chris."
"I don't think the Chris you know and loved will ever return. I think he's gone. I died. That means the future has not been written yet because I'm not there. I died in the past. So that Chris is dead and gone. This new Chris has emerged... I don't know. If Leo ever needs to ask questions or if he needs to go on another Vision Quest I guess they could bring this Chris back and have him be almost like an elder."
"It's cool to listen to fans when they're just panicked because they don't know what I'm about. Everyone wants to know! There are going to be tons of surprises. I'm going to frustrate a lot of people and at the same time they're going to be intrigued."
"Chris was a great character to play. I know he's been sporadic with his behavior, but he's had to dodge so many bullets in regards to trying to keep them in the dark about certain things, so he wouldn't change the future, but also trying to gain their trust. I think his motives have been consistent throughout, but things have happened on so many different scales and in so many different ways that people go, 'Oh, Chris is always changing.' He's just always having to manipulate the present to make sure that the outcome in the future stays the same. So it was kind of a big responsibility on his shoulders. When I was first doing interviews about it I was telling people that I wasn't sure if he was good or evil. See, the thing is, I knew he was good, but I wasn't allowed to share it at the time. I was always kind of in cahoots with Brad Kern. He always let me know what was going on. 'You are the son, but you can't tell them yet because there are a couple of things you need to sort out first.' That definitely helped me with the progression and arc of my character."
