Shortly afterward, she performed a stunt on a movie which allowed her to join Screen Actors Guild. After more than 30 years in the business she has worked on over 100 movies, television shows and commercials. Her credits include such films as Titanic (1997), Beetlejuice (1988), Austin Powers (1997), Waterworld (1995), and television shows Baywatch (1989), MacGyver (1994) and General Hospital (1963).

Cris, along with Annie Ellis, put on the first stunt bowling tournament to help injured stuntwomen. Having been injured on a stunt herself, Cris knows what it’s like to be unable to work and have a limited income. She is on the Board of the Stuntwomen’s Foundation which is dedicated to providing Financial Assistance Grants to Stuntwomen who are unable to work due to debilitating illness or injuries.
