Wannabe actor who stalked Christine Lampard finally makes it to centre stage

By Ivan Little

Modesty clearly isn't Christof King's middle name.

In his online CV, the stalker of TV presenter and footballer's wife Christine Lampard blows his own trumpet. And blows it loud.

He kicks off by saying he's a scientist who spent time studying rocks and seaweed after finishing his training. Which isn't the traditional route into an acting career.

But King bizarrely bemoans the fact that his work with 'inanimate and semi-animate objects' disconnected him from the world.

And that, he says, was all down to his 'strong creative side'.

King, from west Hampstead, boasts that he was 'good at drama' at school and enjoyed it.

And he says that's why he decided to 're-discover his creativity' by re-discovering acting.

On his agent's website, he says that in 2014 he went to The Presenter Studio in London to do a post-graduate acting course.

His CV says that he can play characters aged anywhere between 36 and 42 and adds that he's 6ft 2ins and slim, weighing in at 13-and-a-half stone.

King also lists his hair colour as brown, but his pictures on the internet tell a different story.

For there's decidedly more grey hair than dark hair in his headshots.

King then sets out all his film and TV credits from 2015 to 2018 - but although there are over 20 of them, none are likely to be troubling Bafta or Oscar judges anytime soon.

He only had named parts in a couple of productions.

And his other roles ranged from a toy shop customer in a student film to a party guest in a commercial.

King has a listing on the film 'bible', the Internet Movie Database (IMDb), but the only things on it are his date of birth, August 5, 1978, his star-sign, Leo, and his height.

His Twitter page reveals that he has just four followers but that he follows 37 people.

In court, it was said that he sent vile Twitter messages to Co Down star Christine.

One read: "I can hear the screech of nails as I sharpen them before your crucifixion."

Another said: "I can see the inscription on your tombstone."
