Chris Black

Hello all!
I'm an actor based in Albuquerque, NM, but I'm from west Texas and have a natural Texas accent. I'm a full time student at CNM majoring in Theatre.

I'm proud to announce that I've been cast as the Earl of Kent in the upcoming production of King Lear in the New Mexico Shakespeare Festival! Show opens August 5th and closes on September 9th.

Game of Power - (Pre-production)
Mayor Doug Howland
Portraits - (2021)
Michael Thomas
The Curse and the Covenant - (2020)
Knight (as Kit Black)
OffSet Web Series - The Gandalf Episode - (2019)

If I'm not online, or you want to schedule a meeting, send me an email at

I look forward to working with you!


A jack of all trades, I spent 20 years of my life doing various jobs in the oilfields of west Texas; from working on drilling rigs to managing an air turbine repair facility. In 2010 I opened an IT business, providing IT to small businesses in Texas and New Mexico, and worked it from home until 2018. An autodidact, I spend most of my time learning something new or chasing some Quixotic dream. From musical instruments such as the cello and piano to the Italian and Spanish languages I enjoy, my intellectual pursuits are as varied and interesting as my background.
I'm currently majoring in Theater/Acting at CNM and actively pursuing the dream of being an actor.
