Chris Warren moved from Indianapolis, Indiana, to Los Angeles with his family when he was 6 years old and has been acting ever since. At the age of 9, Warren landed his first feature film, Men of Honor, starring Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr., playing the role of Cuba Gooding Jr.'s character in his younger years.
At age 12, he landed the role of Young Simba in the original cast of the national tour of The Lion King, where he toured all over the country for two years and was able to experience the world of theatre.
Upon returning to Los Angeles, Warren appeared alongside Forest Whitaker in the feature film American Gun. In high school, he had to juggle between playing on the football team and playing the role of Zeke in the first two installments of Disney Channel's High School Musical franchise. Soon after, he secured a lead role in the feature film Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel, which grossed $440 million worldwide.
Warren had a recurring role for three seasons on Freeform's The Fosters, from executive producer Jennifer Lopez. He will next be seen in the films Nightmare Cinema, with Mickey Rourke and Extracurricular Activities, with Timothy Simonds and Angela Kinsey, both slated for theatrical release in 2019; and in ABC's bold and provocative drama Grand Hotel.
In his spare time, Warren loves going to the movies, binge-watching shows and traveling the world.
