Profile Bio Text
Christopher Atkins (born Christopher Atkins Bomann on February 21, 1961) is a Golden Globe-nominated American actor, who became famous with his costarring debut role in the 1980 film The Blue Lagoon. Atkins was born in Valdese, North Carolina, to Donald Bomann and Bitsy Nebauer. In high school, he was a lifeguard and sailing instructor. He had no previous interest or experience in acting, but an agent he knew persuaded him to audition for The Blue Lagoon, a role he won over 4,000 other actors. In the film, he and co-star Brooke Shields, played two teenagers who have lived alone together since they were marooned as children in a tropical paradise, eventually falling in love. The R-rated film featured both Atkins and Shields in scant clothing, and Atkins appeared nude in several scenes, including brief full frontal nudity. The movie was a huge box office success, grossing over $58 million with a production cost of $4.5 million. He went on to star with Kristy MacNichol in The Pirate Movie (1982), an update of Gilbert and Sullivan`s operetta The Pirates of Penzance. He hit #71 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart with the song "How Can I Live Without Her?", which appeared in The Pirate Movie. Atkins again appeared shirtless in this film, which was to become a recurring theme in his acting career. Atkins commented, "What do you mean as soon as I get a job where I don`t have to wear a loincloth, I will be wearing a speedo swimsuit! Will I ever have an acting job when I don`t have to be shirtless?" In A Night in Heaven (1983), also starring Lesley Ann Warren, Atkins played Rick Monroe, an outspoken and overconfident student working his way through college as a male stripper. For one season (1983-1984), Atkins had a recurring role on the hit CBS prime time soap opera, Dallas as a young man who has an affair with Sue Ellen Ewing.
Atkins` famous curly hair was the result of perms; it has darkened from blonde to brown over time.
He married Lyn Barron, from Sydney, Australia, in 1985; the couple had two children, Grant (b. December 10, 1985) and Brittney (b. May 1, 1987), before they divorced. His daughter Brittney Bomann has appeared in five films. His son Grant plays baseball for UNC Charlotte. He owns his outdoor sports company and has patented his own fishing lure.
