Chris answered A LOT of your questions today - go and have a read :)
Some of the Q&As:
Q: Hey Chris, big fan. Do you base a lot of your characters on real people? If so, have they noticed?
Chris: They are never based on real people. But I have a lot of people come up and claim that the characters are based on them. (despite me having never met them). A lot of girls like to think they are the real Ja’mie. (not sure why you’d claim that…)
Q: I love your show! I enjoy how much it pushes the envelope. My question is, how do you overcome your fear or justify airing offensive material? You seem to succeed every time.
Chris: Thanks. It’s not offensive. It’s just funny.
Q: Chris, what’s it like now that you aren’t only well known in Australia, but now all over the world? Did you ever expect for your shows to become successful?
Chris: I never had any concept that the shows would be so far reaching. It blows my mind that people so far away love them so much. I was just in Nashville and hundreds of students turned up for a signing. They were so excited and knew the shows backwards. Some even dressed up as the characters. It is seriously the coolest thing in the world. I feel very lucky
Q: Hey Chris, Firstly I have to say I’m a HUGE fan. You need to come to Canada soon, there’s a lot of us fans over here :) I was wondering if you were ever thinking of spinning off any other characters from We Can Be Heroes? Phil was my favourite!
Chris: I love all the characters and would gladly spin them all off. (that sounds weird)
