Christian Stolte is an American actor who was born on the 16th of October, 1962 in the United States of America. He is currently 53 years of age. He was born as an only child to a mechanical engineer/ guitarist father John Stolte and mother Anosmia, who was a music teacher in the local school of Missouri.
He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, and although being a single child of his parents, he had 4 half siblings from his father previous marriage. Two of those 4 siblings grew up with him, and he had a pretty decent childhood. Studying at the local Solidarity Academy, he learned to play banjo at the age of 6. He learnt it at home with his mother. His father was also in a rock band a few years back, and the family environment inspired him to learn and play music from a young age. A great fan of American football, Christian played as a quarterback before he graduated from his school. He also was involved in a pop band back then. He played guitar solos and performed gigs around his vicinity.
Born and bred in American, Stolte is an American by nationality and belongs to white ethnicity. His named suggests that he is a follower of Christianity. Chris has successfully completed his Bachelors level education, with a lot of struggle. Upon his graduation, he left the city and his pop band, and went to Chicago for higher studies. During this time, he started to get some regular roles. He was often found more around the theatres than in his college. As a result, he had to drop out on the 3rd year, after he got some off Broadway roles in plays like The Count of Tuscany, Harry and His Mates, Some Sad Day, Pillena Course and others. His work was already starting to get recognized and he was becoming famous around Illinois. Soon, he left theatre and it is believed that he did diploma in an acting/ theater course. However, the fame that he had gained, faded away slowly and there was a time when he did not have much to look forward to. “At one point, I even thought about giving up in acting. There seemed to be no job for me” he has said. During that time, he supported himself financially by playing music in pubs, working part time in hotels and such.
After he completed his degree, he went back to theatres, but had lost his connections. But then in 1997, he was approached by an old friend who wanted him to star in a play named “Canus Lunis Balloonis”, which was to be featured at the Red Orchid Theatre in Chicago. Grabbing that chance, Chris played a major part in that play, and later won the Joseph Jefferson Award for New Work. Soon, he was getting job offers, and took up a role in the movie Stranger than Fiction (2006). He is also known for his role of Keith Stolte in TV series Prison Break. He later portrayed the role of Charles Makley in the movie Public Enemies (2009) and the same year was seen in Law Abiding Citizen.
Even after being so popular, he has kept his personal life entirely in the dark. There is almost no information about his marriage life and children. It seems like he is a married man and might have a wife, but as he has not revealed anything it is difficult to say anything. Information on his divorce is not available and it might be because he has not been through any. He does not seem gay but as he has never talked about his sexual preference, no one knows the truth.
His success can be proved from the earnings he has had in the past, which has always boosted his net worth to millions.
