Chris Young and Lea (Alli girl) ROCK!!!
2 January 2003 | by (Jacksonville, Florida) – See all my reviews

Chris you made it! You always said you'd be famous one day! you are an inspiration to all who have dreams. Lea (alli girl) and Montana LYNN CHAMBERS are my favorite in Falling Sky. I wonder why? Anyone who knows Chris from Washington Jr High in the Quad Cities, IL - know he has two left feet and owes me a dance, so I may step all over his feet! I'm proud to say I knew him then and wish him a blessed journey in the industry- I love all the movies and appearances over the years. Chris was a talented teen and I just felt I'd see him on the big screen one day! After I saw one of his plays as a child in IL he soon left the area. Everyone deeply missed him at school, until he started showing up here and there getting parts in various shows. The Great Outdoors is his most famous movie with John Candy.

Go ahead Chris!
