Bower expected Chris's coming out storyline to receive criticism and some media commentators called it "an obvious ratings grab".

Describing the scene, he said "I did have to stand up in front a group of people and tell them [as my character], I was gay. Steele said that she is "particularly proud" of the way Chris's storyline had been handled and she added "It was something we wanted to do for a while because it's a story that affects so many people and in so many different ways. I think it's interesting to see how [his sexuality] affected his friends and his relationships with them too".

He added "I know it's quite a sensitive topic, but I think the difference between his and the last encounters they've had is that we're looking more in-depth into more than just a "gay kiss".

And because the guy wasn't pointing his remarks directly at Chris, Lucas didn't understand why Chris was so offended.

At first, he didn't have an appreciation of how deep those comments hurt Chris." The storyline divided the opinions of viewers with some understanding why Lucas would not want to confront Warren, while others were on Chris's side.

He was the second ongoing homosexual character overall, following Lana Crawford's (Bridget Neval) introduction in 2004.

Chris departed on 27 March 2015, but made a cameo appearance on 6 November.

Upon finding employment at the local garage, Chris was faced with Warren Burrell (Tony Rickards), a homophobic customer.

In August 2011, a love interest for Chris was introduced in the form of Aidan Foster (Bobby Morley) and they formed Neighbours' first gay couple.

However, Chris developed a crush on Andrew Robinson (Jordan Smith) and subsequently revealed that he was gay.

Chris initially struggled with his sexuality and the reactions of his friends, family and team mates.

However, in January 2011, a Network Ten spokesperson told SX News that Mason's role would be expanded from April and he and Chris will get more screen time.
