Christien Anholt was born in London, and began his acting career in 1988 at the age of 17 after winning the role of 'Hans' in the film Reunion, for which Anholt received a Best Actor nomination at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival. He later received the Best Actor at the E'Febo Doro award in Sicily in 1990. Harold Pinter, who wrote the screenplay for Reunion, recommended Anholt to playwright Ronald Harwood, who cast him as 'Leonard/Jeremy Lands' in his play Another Time, starring Albert Finney.

He received positive reviews for his portrayal of 'Gary Warrell' in the BBC 'Screen2' production Money For Nothing. He has also been featured in Seventeen opposite Rachel Weisz, and the BBC's Hard Times opposite Alan Bates and Richard E. Grant. The Harpist earned him another Best Actor nomination, this time at the Geneva Film Festival in 1997. This was followed by Preaching to the Perverted, The Ruby Ring, and George Miltons' Appetite. Anholt returned to the West End in Terence Rattigan's In Praise Of Love and was again cast by Harold Pinter and director David Jones opposite Pinter himself, in his thriller, The Hothouse.
