I went over to IMDB.com for a quick review of the man as it wasn't one I was initially familiar with. However, he's actually done an impressive amount of genre work, including roles in such properties as Sliders, A Light In The Forest (2003), and the oft-maligned Speed Racer (2008) theatrical adaptation which I honestly quite liked. It looks like around that time, Oliver added the producing responsibilities to his resume, giving him the chance to obviously get more involved personally with bringing films to the screen while also appearing in front of the camera. House Of Good And Evil (2013), The Outer Wild (2018), and Animal Among Us (2019) were among such entries. (Both House Of Good And Evil and Animal Among Us appear to have performed well on the film festival circuit.)
In 2016, he brought to life the role of 'Werner von Braun' for an episode of NBC's popular serial Timeless.
Our warmest prayers are extended to the family, friends, and fans of Christian Oliver.
May he forever rest in peace.
