Early life and career[edit]

Christopher Berry was born in San Angelo, Texas and moved to New Orleans to study acting under professional actor and instructor John Dennis. Of his experience, Berry stated "New Orleans basically made me a full-time working actor...by just being frugal, I've managed to make a living at it, and not a bad living." He also credits it to getting connected to other professionals in the business such as Matthew McConaughey and Quentin Tarantino, the former of whom he has become close friends with.[1] Berry gained further recognition for his role on The Walking Dead as Negan's Scout and for uttering the famous line "Your property now belongs to Negan." Behind the scenes, Berry had come up with a name for his character (Bud) and a convincing backstory which many fans have taken as canon.[2] He was added to the cast of Spider-Man: Homecoming as one of the film's antagonist.[3]

Berry is a Texas Longhorns fan and considers Earl Campbell his favorite.[2]
