Christian Slater

Updated on March 21, 2014

Christian Slater

Christian Slater (Christian Michael Leonard Hawkins) was a teen heart throb in the late 80s and early 90s.  His voice and distinguishing eyebrows would get girls swooning. I’m pretty sure some of those women are still swooning today.

He was my favorite actor all the way back to my middle school years. There’s never been another who’s claimed his spot since then so I guess he remains my favorite.

The first time I saw him was in the movie Heathers and I was just mesmerized. Shortly after that I joined a video club so I could buy all of his movies. It became a collection of mine that I still have today.

Christian Michael Leonard Slater (born August 18, 1969) is an American actor. He made his film debut with a small role in The Postman Always Rings Twice before playing a leading role in the 1985 film The Legend of Billie Jean. He then played a monk's apprentice alongside Sean Connery in The Name of the Rose before gaining recognition for his breakthrough role in the cult film Heathers.

      I think the first time I ever saw Slater was Name of the Rose. I think my most favourite Slater movie is Pump up the Volume - because it was so shocking!! I havent seen him in anything since that star trek movie he made in which he had a small speaking part.

      Greeting and Salutations from Brazil Christine,Your site is amazing, you've got the most important facts of Christian Slater's career in one place, there's a great deal of information here, From then now I'll be visiting more often. I've been a huge fan of him since the end of the 80s. I have already have most of his movies except the ones I couldn't find here in Brazil. I'm very happy he's back on TV this month with the Forgotten, I hope it's very successful and lasts for many seasons ahead. I'll be crossing my fingers that it comes to Brazil very soon. You're doing a great job gathering information for other fans, please go on. CS for me is too much perfection.My favorite movies are Kuffs, True Romance, Untamed Heart and He was a quiet man. Too much talent and versatility in just one gifted and very handsome actor. Love him. Kisses and hugs,Cida

      You have pulled together awesome information here! (One of the reasons I had to buy Fern Gully was Christian Slater doing a voice!) Thanks for all your hard work!
