Chris Bath Believes Acting Is a Fulfilling Form of Expression
Chris Bath is an actor currently residing in East Tennessee. His credits as an actor include participations in crime documentaries such as Snapped: Killer Couples, Homicide Hunter, #Murder, and Dying to Belong. He has also acted in a few commercials and worked as a background extra on two episodes of the CBS TV series Tell Me A Story.
He has done some modeling in the past as well, and while he hasn't done any work as a model in the last five years, he is still open to future projects.
When did you decide that you wanted to become an actor?
I first became interested in acting when I was in college, but at the time I decided to put acting aside to focus on my studies. However, by the time I was finished with college, I became completely immersed in trying to support myself by working in a profession that I found to be unfulfilling and that, quite frankly, made me unhappy.
In May, 2014 I met an accomplished Hollywood actor who was local to my area and was giving a seminar at a local library. His name is Cylk Cozart. After Cylk was finished talking to the patrons, I spoke with him for a few minutes. He was a really nice and down-to-earth guy. I guess you could call it a chance meeting, because it was Cylk who rekindled my interest in acting, and from that moment on I decided to get the ball rolling and work towards accomplishing my goals in the acting world!
For as long as I can remember, I have had this very creative side that likes to be funny and entertaining, and this is what attracted me more to the acting profession as I grew older and more mature. It provided an appropriate outlet for me to express this creativity, especially with improv, which has become one of my favorite types of acting!
Who are your biggest influences?
Clint Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Sylvester Stallone, and Harrison Ford were my favorite actors and had the greatest influence on me when I was younger. Over the years I’ve followed these actors. I have really enjoyed their films and the way they exude this tough guy persona in the roles that they portray. It's not just the movies they have acted in that I like, but also other films they have directed or produced.
What are your main strengths as an actor?
Work ethic and punctuality. When I commit to a project, I will stay with it to the very end.

How difficult is it to establish yourself in the film industry?
It's quite competitive! I'm always competing against many other actors for starring roles in film and TV projects, and I've been rejected many more times than I have booked roles in film and television.
What I have learned along the way is that it's a long journey which requires a lot of patience. You can’t let yourself get discouraged if you run into setbacks!
What's your dream, your ultimate goal? Do you feel like you're on the path to this goal, or do you feel as if you already achieved that dream?
I can't really predict what the future will hold in store for me, considering that we are living in difficult times. However, my main goal in this industry is to be a regular working actor, and what I mean by this is working full time doing what I love. I'm not there yet, but God willing I can accomplish my goals within the next five years!
What is your message to all your fans?
I don't consider myself a celebrity, but whoever and wherever my fans may be, your support and encouragement are always appreciated!
