Christopher Judge is an American actor best known for his role as Teal'c in the sci-fi television series Stargate SG-1, from 1997-2007.
Although Judge seemed pre-destined to have a career in football after receiving a football scholarship from the University of Oregon, becoming a three time All-American and playing in the Hula Bowl, he always knew he wanted to be an actor.
While in Oregon, Judge entered a contest to host the West Coast FOX KLSR Morning Show. His witty five-minute monologue helped him beat out thousands of other hopefuls for the job.
This break lead him to several guest star appearances on such television sitcoms as Martin, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Lush Life, and The Jamie Foxx Show.
His guest starring roles on dramatic series included The Burning Zone, Wise Guy, 21 Jump Street, MacGyver, and Gabriel's Fire before becoming a series regular on Sirens where he played Richie Styles.
In 1997 he was cast as Teal’c in Stargate SG-1 and has reprised the role every season since.
Judge's feature film credits include lead roles in Cadence, Bird on a Wire, Little Feet, The Glory Years, and House Party II, where he played the memorable antagonist Miles. He also appeared in Disney's Snow Dogs as Dr. Brooks.
Judge studied drama at the Howard Fine Studio in Los Angeles and continues to be an avid athlete.
During the Stargate 1998-99 hiatus, Judge produced and starred in his first short film called Hacks.
He is engaged to model and actress Gianna Patton. They welcomed their first child, Chloe Jolie, on February 7, 2005.
He has three other children by ex-wife Margaret Judge, a model: Christopher, Cameron and Catrina.
