A performer since the age of three, Christine realised by ten that acting was going to be a true calling for her.
Born in Australia to Filipino parents, Christine had her infallible work ethic and sense of responsibility instilled in her at a young age.
The eldest of five siblings, she would direct them in recreations of their favourite movies and their games would involve storylines of the films she loved most.
Graduating from QUT's Acting program, Christine pursued her career in Los Angeles with her Green Card in hand.
In 2020, Christine landed her first lead role in a yet to be announced feature film that is set to premiere at the 2021 Sydney Film Festival.
She is represented by Silver Linings Entertainment and Gilchrist Management.
"Her comic timing, work ethic and professionalism made her an absolute joy to have on set. Christine brought Rosalie to life, balancing the self absorbed character with genuine likeability."
- Anna Waters-Massey, Writer/Producer; Stage Mums
"As an actor and coach, I reflect on the qualities I admire in those I work with: intelligence, bravery, awareness, honesty, and an unguarded quality. Christine possesses all these and many more that are not mentioned."
- Charles Allen, Head of Acting APA; Acting Coach
"(Christine) has a remarkable ability for variety, humor and character development. She is also exceptionally skilled in accent work. So successful was this work that it has garnered significant interest from major programmers across Australia. "
- Leila Enright, Associate Producer PWA; White Pearl
Christine is an actor by trade but a slashie…well by necessity. Her debut short film überrich was born out of pure frustration. Writing, directing, producing and starring in the comedy short, it was shortlisted for Tropfest and the Stellar Short Film Festival in 2017.
überrich went on to win two awards at the Shorts in Paradise Festival (SIPFEST) including People’s Choice. Christine was then nominated for Best Young Filmmaker at the Noosa International Film Festival and accepted into Cinefest Oz and the Sydney Indie Film Festival.
Christine has continued to work behind the camera with writing and producing partner, Marni Little. Together they formed A Little Shaw Productions producing multiple short films including the award-winner, Valentine’s Day (a co-production with Brisbane team Hired Goons), Meeting Place and Date Night. The duo also produced two pitch pilots for development, The Team and Law and Norah before bringing in Kyle McCallion to round out the company at A Little Shaw. The Team has since been reimagined as She’s Got Balls (a co-pro with Lisa Kimberley Hughes at Just Joy Studios) and has received RADF funding to film a pilot episode to pitch at Screen Forever 2021.
Evie over-commits to her Valentine's Day plans when she makes up a fake name for a fake date. Can her and 'Steve Cushion' prep in time?
