Christopher David Patton (born March 15, 1971 in Houston, Texas) is an American actor who been acting since early childhood and voice acting for FUNimation Entertainment and ADV Films for eight years. He has voiced over 100 anime titles, played hundreds of characters, and appeared at over 40 anime conventions. Though he remains very active with ADV Films, he has terminated his business relationship with FUNimation Entertainment.
He has often been in anime involving Luci Christian and Jessica Boone, the other two leads of Princess Tutu. He was co-front man of an electropop/ebm band called PLID. Theatrically, he has performed with the Houston Grand Opera, the Tony Award Winning Alley Theatre, and just about every theatrical organization in the Houston area. Some of his theatrical credits include Blood Brothers, The Who's Tommy, Laurence Fishburne's gritty street drama Riff Raff, Psycho Beach Party, The Pirates of Penzance, Runaways, Jesus Christ Superstar, A Christmas Carol, and many more. In the realm of Voiceover, Patton is most-often associated with his character "Greed" in Fullmetal Alchemist and "Sousuke Sagara" from the Full Metal Panic series. He is also well known for doing the English voice of Turles in the FUNimation dub of Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z. He also does the voice of Gourry Gabriev in the Slayers Premium movie.
Chris has a rare genetic/metabolic disorder called Phenylketonuria, or PKU, which hinders the body's natural ability to properly break down most forms of protein. This explains Patton's since-birth low-protein, vegetarian diet.
