The role, which was his debut on the screens, ushered him into the showbiz life in which he is living. Not much is known about the star, but we will bring you the interesting and lesser-known facts about his life.
Christian Keyes Bio, Age
Christian was born on July 24, 1975, to his parents in Detroit, Michigan. The African-American who was raised in Flint attended Ferris State University in Michigan, for his tertiary education. Music and acting were always strong interests for young Christian who would engage himself in lots of acting classes while in school. Some of his music endeavors include features in Keri Hilson’s music video, “Energy”, “The Way That I Love You” by Ashanti and others.
But Keyes extensively pursued his acting career after school, scouting for movie roles and the likes. He started appearing in theatre productions before he soon moved to Los Angeles in search of greener pastures. The actor made his debut after getting a small role in the 2005 movie Diary of a Mad Balck Woman. The following years came with more roles; this time guest-starring roles in different series including Brothers and Sisters, Beauty and the Beast, Born Again Virgin, Family Time and many others.
TV film roles followed from 2010 when he featured in the movie Perfect Combination. Others were productions like Lord, All Men can’t be Dogs, Note to Self and Act Like You Love Me, etc. Christian rose to prominence when he landed a role in the popular Bounce TV series ‘Saints and Sinners’, as Levi Sterling. He also plays significant characters in The CW fantasy “Supernatural”, and BET drama “In Contempt,”.
Christian is also a model. As a matter of fact, he began his career as a model and fitness trainer before he went into acting and producing.
Keyes has a net worth estimated at $1.5 million garnered from the income he makes through his movie roles. This figure could be lesser than his entire earnings considering the fact that he is not just an actor but an author and a producer. The talented actor is on a sure way to sustainable wealth given his on-screen prominence and recent roles.
Family – Parents, Wife, Son
There may not be a lot to tell about Christian Keyes’ family, but the actor sure knows what his ideal family would look like. The actor who had a humble and disciplined upbringing courtesy of his parents upholds those family values and wishes to inculcate them in his own family. But how do we know this?.
Christian has a son Christian Keyes Jr. although not much is known about the boy’s mother. Keyes Jr. is said to be a product of Christian’s former relationships. The used to be in a relationship with Baje Fetcher, a union which was quite short-spanned; and as such, not much is known about it either.
In an interview, the actor once revealed his desire to have his own proper family; one with wife and kids. Though he has a son he wishes to have more kids and probably adopt too. Christian revealed his ideal wife to be a woman who is reserved and homely and not one who bares her body for the public to admire. However, despite his illustrations, Keyes keeps his personal life very private and far away from the prying eyes of the media.
Is He Gay?
For a celebrity with a notoriously private and reserved nature, the above question is surely expected. Due to the fact that the actor shares less information with the public especially regarding his personal life, many have questioned his sexuality. Moreso, his hot body, and restrained aura tend to be misleading, although the Saints and Sinners actor describes himself as straight.
However, these are only usual assumptions made by inquisitive fans and the press alike. Christian has never portrayed himself as gay and maintains his heterosexual status. Moreso, his past relationship with Baje Fetcher as well as his desire to have his dream wife in a way debunks the said assumptions.
Height and Weight
No doubt, Christian Keyes has the perfect body that will suit whatever showbiz genre he wishes to go into. With his tall height of 1.9m (6ft 3in) which is very proportional to his weight of 85kg, Keyes is above average when it comes to physical perfection. The actor whose long feet fit into size 12 shoes, maintains his sturdy physique through extensive workouts.
