Chris Barrie

[ Rimmer, in his green uniform ] Name: Christopher Jonathan Barrie
Date of Birth: 28th March, 1960
Place of Birth: Hanover, West Germany

Plays: Arnold J. Rimmer in Red Dwarf

This is the comic genius who plays Arnold Rimmer from Red Dwarf, Gordon Brittas from The Brittas Empire and Gary Prince from A Prince Among Men. He's also known for his impressions (he was the voice of various characters in Splitting Images), and has appeared in numerous adverts.

In my opinion, Chris is a wonderful actor. He seems to be quite witty, and above all, he's a gentleman. Very British, depsite being born in Germany.

He is also something of a sex symbol, it seems. Many, many female fans on the internet tend to drool over him (rather than just chatting about him)... the only problem with this is that, being very British, he's more embarassed over this than anything else.

His hobbies include various out door activities and excersising... and his love for classic cars and other assorted vehicles. He might be downsizing his collection, though (at one point, he had at least 42 cars!). Also, he enjoys photography.

Here's a quick run-down of his history:

He would enjoy doing a romantic role, but he feels that playing characters like Rimmer, Brittas and Prince leave him with little chance of this. I (and many other fans) support him all the way, and would love to see him in this role!

What the future holds for Mr Barrie, we shall just have to wait and see - but he is willing to appear in Red Dwarf 8, and the Red Dwarf movie... so hopefully we will be seeing much more of this actor!

[ Chris Barrie - doesn't he look the part for a romantic role? ]


I'd really _love_ to get together a Chris Barrie gallery - photos of him from conventions, with other people, without other people, etc. Please contribute and make this a great Chris Barrie page!
