Early Life

Christine Michelle Metz was born on September 29, 1980, in Florida, USA, to Mark and Denise Metz.

In her early childhood, Metz moved to Japan with her parents and siblings due to her father's job, who was stationed in Japan for the U.S. Navy. [3] She was raised in Japan for nine years, where she learned to speak Japanese before she learned English.[4]

In the aftermath of Metz's parents' divorce, her mother remarried and moved back to Florida with her, her new husband, Metz's two siblings, and two half-siblings. The actress also gained her education in Florida.[5]

Her first job as a teenager was at McDonald's; then, she worked as an agent for nearly ten years before entering the entertainment industry.

Career development

Metz's involvement in the entertainment industry started unexpectedly when she accompanied her sister (14), who was searching for model engagement on an open audition.

Metz was a talented singer, so she sang Christina Aguilera's "Beautiful" and attracted the attention of a talent agent who suggested Metz begin an acting career in Los Angeles.[6]

Unfortunately, Metz's acting journey wasn't smooth, as she had multiple auditions but failed to land any significant roles.

Instead, she started working on the opposite side and searched for talented actors who could audition for roles in multiple movies.

  • "I came out here to be an actress, but I needed to pay the bills, and I didn't want to work with the general public,"- the actress revealed to The Hollywood Reporter.[7]

During her career as an agent, Metz managed to land a few minor roles in the popular series "American Horror Story" and "My Name is Earl." She was also featured in "Loveless in Los Angeles," "The Onion Movie," "Sierra Burgess Is a Loser," and "Stay Awake Michelle." [8]

Despite this, it wasn't until she auditioned for the role of Kate Pearson in the six-season family drama "This is Us" that her name became known.

As a result of her role in the show, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award and an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series.

Her next acting engagement was in the movie "Breakthrough" where she received a starring role.

Metz is also a singer and has released two pop songs titled "Feel Good" and "Girl Go."

In addition to her acting and singing, she has also published a book - an autobiography titled "This is Me" in which she shares the ups and downs of her life and her journey to becoming a successful actress.[9]

Personal Life

In 2008, Metz got married to a British journalist named Martyn Eaden. But, the couple got divorced in 2013 due to "irreconcilable differences." [3]

During her career, Metz was mainly hired for roles that required bigger women. However, once she landed a role in "This is Us," Metz needed to lose weight as a part of her job.

She stated that the role of Kate was a motivating factor for her to start losing weight and that it was a win-win situation.
