Christopher Hart (born 22 February 1961) is a Canadian actor and magician.

At the age of eight, he became intrigued after discovering a magic book at the local library. It was at this same time that the television series The Magician starring Bill Bixby was on the air and further fueled his passion for magic.

At sixteen, after an extensive audition and interview process, Hart was accepted into the Magic Castle's elite junior program. As a teenager, he earned extra money working in a cemetery as a grave digger and was nicknamed Lurch due to his tall, lanky frame. Soon realizing that it was a dead-end job, Hart accepted a position demonstrating tricks at Hollywood Magic, the largest West Coast magic shop.

Working in Hollywood gave Hart the opportunity to meet and perform before the likes of Michael Jackson, Johnny Carson, Muhammad Ali, and Harry Anderson. As Hart's reputation grew he soon came to the attention of David Copperfield, for whom Hart first worked as a Magic Roadie. Impressed with Hart's knowledge and expertise in the field of magic, Copperfield continued to use him on several more live and television shows, including the Great Wall of China special.


Hart played Thing in the 1991 movie, Addams Family Values, and Addams Family Reunion.
