Christopher M. Candy is a Canadian actor, comedian, and musician. He was born on September 23, 1984, in Canada, to father John Candy and mother Rosemary Margaret Hobor.

Being born into a family of artists, a comedian, and an actor as a father and an abstract painter, and ceramicist for a mother, Chris, along with his sister Jennifer Candy was introduced into the world of art at an early age.

Family Life

Living under the shadow of one's parent is always hard, but it is harder when the said parent is also famous and loved by many people around the world. Christopher and his sister Jennifer are the perfect examples of this statement. But both of them have gracefully accepted the fate of them being known as their father, John Candy's children for most of their life.

Chris was just 9-years-old when his father died of a heart attack. While growing up without a father was very hard, the actor and his older sister, still, have the fondest memories of their father. But nevertheless, their mother, Rosemary Margaret Hobor didn't let them feel the absence of their father. They constantly talk about their father's legacy and the happy moments with him from their childhood during interviews.

Visiting his father on sets, where he was filming, made the love for the craft in Chris's heart grow. Chris stated in an interview that he always loved watching how things work both behind and in front of the camera while on set. The same love then made him want to follow in his father's footsteps and make movies.
