Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Before his unexpected death in a skiing accident in 2008, Christopher Allport had established himself as a prolific and familiar television performer. He cut his teeth with a regular role on the long-running daytime soap opera "Another World" (1973). The actor impressed Hollywood with his performance, and he never wanted for work again. Throughout the 1970s, Allport was busy, making constant guest appearances on the most popular TV series of the day. Among a great many others, he had one-off roles on the Korean War saga "M*A*S*H*" (1975) and a 1978 episode of the private eye procedural "Barnaby Jones." The subsequent three decades were equally busy for Allport; he popped up on such hit programs as "Dynasty" (1987), in a recurring part on the popular nighttime soap, and on the cop saga "NYPD Blue" (2002). His last TV appearance was on an episode of the 1960s drama "Mad Men" (2008). Although he was primarily a television actor, Allport made appearances in movies from time to time. He appeared in William Friedkinâ¿¿s 1985 violent crime thriller "To Live and Die in L.A." and the supernatural thriller "Jack Frost" (1997).
