Bio

Most familiar to television viewers as the dim-witted anchorman Miller Redfield on Murphy Brown, Christopher Rich has enjoyed a successful career in television, film and theatre.

Born in Dallas, Texas, Rich began performing in plays while attending high school in the Rio Grande Valley, urged by a teacher to channel his rowdy tendencies into acting rather than protesting the Vietnam War.

He continued performing and studying acting at the University of Texas and later at Cornell University, where he received a master's degree in theatre arts.

Rich moved to New York and began performing on stage, highlighted by playing Dionysus in The Bacchae on Broadway, and in many off-Broadway and regional productions. In order to raise funds for plays he was producing, he joined the cast of Another World, playing Alexander "Sandy" Cory for the next four years.

He moved to Los Angeles and appeared in many television series, most notably joining the lauded ensemble cast on Murphy Brown and being a series regular on The George Carlin Show.

On the big screen, Rich starred in The Joy Luck Club, as Tamlyn Tomita's husband, John Milius' Vietnam War movie Flight Of The Intruder, with Danny Glover and Willem Dafoe, and the independent art film Prisoners Of Inertia, with Amanda Plummer.

Rich has appeared in numerous television movies, with credits including Going Home, opposite Jason Robards in one of his last performances.

He played a villain in and served as a producer for The Gambler IV, which marked his first project with Reba star Reba McEntire and solidified their friendship. He also starred in and produced In the Line of Duty: Manhunt in the Dakotas with Rod Steiger.

Rich lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Eva Halina, 1985's Miss Poland and an Olympic gymnast at the 1980 Moscow Olympics, who gave birth to twins in 2004.

In his spare time, Rich enjoys playing golf, collecting books and fine wines.
