He rose to fame for portraying Nikolas Cassadine and Connor Bishop on the ABC soap opera General Hospital. In 1993, Christopher, credited as Tyler Baker at the time, auditioned for the role of Stone Cates on General Hospital, but the role ultimately went to Michael Sutton.
However, his career took a significant turn when, in April 1996, he was cast as Nikolas Cassadine, signing a three-year deal and filming his first scenes in late June 1996.

In March 2013, he made a recurring return to General Hospital while also working on The Lying Game. By June 2013, he had signed a regular contract with General Hospital, coinciding with the cancellation of The Lying Game.
