Biography

Christopher Evan Welch was a much respected supporting actor on stage and screen. He appeared on and off Broadway in "Scapin" (1997), "London Assurance" (1997) and "A Street Car Named Desire" (1999) before landing a small part in an episode of the procedural drama "Third Watch" (NBC 1999-2005) followed by his film debut in the indie feature "Chinese Coffee" (2000), directed by Al Pacino. Although he never gave up theater, appearing in high-profile productions like the 2002 Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" alongside Laura Linney and Liam Neeson, Welch continued his screen career with character roles in several big budget movies including "The Stepford Wives" (2004) with Nicole Kidman, "The Interpreter" (2005), and Steven Spielberg's "War of the Worlds" (2005). Other notable roles included providing the narration for Woody Allen's "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" (2008) and a recurring role on "Law & Order" (NBC 1990-2010). Welch then landed his first series lead on the sci-fi thriller "Rubicon (AMC 2010). Other film work included roles in Spielberg's "Lincoln" and Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master," both of which received multiple Oscar nominations. Welch was then cast in Mike Judge's satirical comedy "Silicon Valley" (HBO 2014-). Many predicted this could be his breakout role, but sadly the 48-year-old actor died of lung cancer before the show's debut season was screened.
