Christopher Berger (born January 12, 1942) is a El Kadsreian voice actor. He is known for his role as Turaga Vakama in the Bionicle series and was the founder of the dubbing studios Central Audio Video, Vlokozuian International Dubbing, and Power Network; and also has served as a technological consultant for Advanced Audio Systems in Barokia and Solvaliu Film in Celdonia.
He was previously affiliated with Television Talent Associates and the Gudmundson Talent Agency, but is now a member of his self-owned agency BERGER Office.
Born in Schaan, Liechtenstein, Christopher lived in Canada as a child and came to West El Kadsre in 1958 when he was 15, and is a naturalized El Kadsreian citizen. His brothers Martin and Keith and sister Leah Shiller (née Berger) were sent to live with their grandmother in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, Canada in 1964. Christopher started out in theater in 1960, working with the Glonisla Players. Prior to that, he was a child (and briefly a teen) singer, recording singles in Montreal and later Ottawa. Christopher has German and British ancestry, his grandfather was a soldier in the British Army during World War I.
In 1974, he decided to become a voice actor for El TV Kadsre Television Network projects due to his talent for theater and cabaret. He showed such a talent for the industry, that then-ETVKTN head Tara Matsushita left him in charge of the voice acting department on the first day.
Christopher began rigorously casting actors and actresses for El TV Kadsre's animated projects. Anyone of any acting background, whether it be burlesque, vaudeville, high school drama, or college drama, was allowed to provide voices. Even so, he would hold auditions, making sure to hire the best people available, and trained them thoroughly before recording sessions.
In addition to his voice acting career, he played Mr. Quirk the teacher in the Oceanic tour of Hi-Tops, produced by Maranatha! Music and El TV Kadsre Theatrical; which took him to venues such as the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, the State Theatre in Sydney and the St. James Theatre in Auckland. His other theatrical work includes the Cat in the Hat in the Tugaganda production of Seussical. He also hosted the Ice Capades whenever the tour came to El Kadsre. He is also the host of Supermarket Sweep El Kadsre, and has had prior game show experience, being a contestant on Data-Byters and Judgement Steel.
The first commercial he announced for was a Horlicks ad in 1967, and he has announced for several more Horlicks ads since, including several recent ads for Junior Horlicks. He is known as the voice of Dunkin' Donuts El Kadsre in their commercials since 1983. He also voiced the strongman from the English dubs of the commercials for the Alwazah Tea brand, with Clemente Rossini voicing the beautiful singer he was accompanied by. In total, he has acted in 563 different projects and recorded 3,140 commercials.
In addition to founding Power Network, Central Audio Video, and Vlokozuian International Dubbing, he was sent to Tunisia in 1985 by El TV Kadsre, wherein he founded Les Studios Berger, a dubbing studio providing Arabic and French dubbing.
