Chris Pine was created on August 26, 1980, in La, California. He impersonated the iconic Captain James Kirk in the 2009 remake of Star Trek—a part that transformed the youthful performer into a Hollywood A-lister.
Christopher Whitelaw Pine was created in La, California, on August 26, 1980. Pine’s mom, Gwynne Gilford, and sister, Katie, also appreciated minor performing professions.
Pine regularly spent time on Hollywood places while growing up, though he was mostly thinking about sports throughout his youth. He chose to enter the family business while attending the University of California, Berkeley, where he took acting classes before graduating with a diploma in English literature.
Chris Pine started his performing career on television with appearances on ER, The Guardian and CSI: Miami. Pine returned to the genre two years afterwards, this time costarring with Lindsay Lohan in Just My Luck. He was afterwards given the chance to branch out as a villainous neo-Nazi in the ensemble offense film Smoking Aces (2007).
In 2008, Pine got the coveted role of Captain James Kirk in the J.J. Adams-directed reboot of the famous Star Trek franchise. Starring fellow up and coming performers Zachary Quinto and Zoe Saldana as Spock and Uhura, respectively, Star Trek was both a critical and box office success upon its 2009 launch, and Pine became an overnight star.
The success of Star Trek opened more doors for Pine, as he went to earn added notable movie characters. The exact same year, the actor was cast in the titular role of CIA agent Jack Ryan, on the basis of the character in the Tom Clancy series, in the Kenneth Branagh-directed movie Jack Ryan.
A long career apparently ahead of him, Pine said in a interview he seen celebrated performer Paul Newman as a role model, both for his artistic success and his impact as a philanthropist. The performer also professed admiration for George Clooney’s bachelor lifestyle.
Pine continues to be romantically linked to a number of starlets, though he’s confessed to enjoying more of a low key private life as a bookworm.
