Chris Patrick: Destined to Reach Great Heights Through Acting


 
Acting is something that comes naturally to him. And while many in their final years in high schools were busy preparing for their final exams, ‘Chris’ Patrick Ng’ang’a was producing his first movie, Point of No Return.

As the movie title says, he had reached a point of no return in his acting, literally, and the way forward was to keep on marching!
