Fresno Famous

Christophe_cohen_5499394_400 This is Christopher Gorham. I was reading this article in a local magazine today and it talked about how this TV star was born and raised here in Fresno. I always think it’s crazy when someone really "makes it" and gets seen by the world when they are from our small town. Fresno is actually a pretty big place now (top 50 in US with a higher population than Sacramento, New Orleans, Kansas City, or Tulsa) but it is still weird to me that people "escape" and make it big. So congrats to Christopher.

If he looks familiar he was born in 1974 and was part of the "Good Company Players" back in the day and graduated from Roosevelt high school. He has been on tons of shows including: Medical Investigation (which I really liked), Out of Practice, Jake 2.0, Odyssey 5, Popular, Felicity, Party of Five, CSI, Without a Trace, Boomtown, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and is now starring on Ugly Betty. He’s also been in several movies: The Other Side of Heaven (didn’t like this one) and A Life Less Ordinary with Ewan McGregor and Cameron Diaz. His parents still live here in town, so maybe I’ll catch him sometime.
