Christopher Hollier is a writer for ABC's Once Upon a Time.


Not much is known about Christopher Hollier's early life.

His career began in 2003, when he started working as an assistant to J.J. Abrams on Alias.[1] This position allowed him to become a TV writer as he wrote the Season Three episode "Facade" in 2004.[2] From 2007 to 2009, he was a part of the writing team of the second and third seasons of Kyle XY, and penned four episodes of the ABC Family series.[1]

In 2011, Hollier wrote and produced a pilot script for ABC called Poe, a series about the world’s first detective, Edgar Allan Poe, who uses unconventional means to uncover mysteries.[3] The pilot was ordered by the network, but it ended up not being picked up as a series.[4] Later, that same year, Hollier wrote another pilot script for ABC called Safehouse. It was the story of a young, brash CIA agent who joins a crew of agency professionals, headed by his long-estranged superspy mother.[5] This time, the pilot was not ordered by the network.

From 2012 to 2013, Hollier joined the team of the short-lived 666 Park Avenue. He served as co-producer of the ABC series, and wrote two episodes, including the thirteenth and final episode "Lazarus".[1] Then, Hollier joined the team of CBS's Elementary. From 2013 to 2014, he produced fifteen episodes, four DVD extras and even wrote the Season Two episode "The Marchioness".[1]

In 2014, Hollier joined The CW's The Originals, the spinoff series of The Vampire Diaries. Over the years, he wrote eleven episodes of the series. His most recent one is the Season Four episode "Voodoo Child", which premiered on June 16, 2017.[1] He also received a producing credit over fifty-four episodes of the series.[1] To this day, Hollier is still a part of the series' writing and producing teams.

In 2015, Hollier was asked to write a script by Paramount Pictures for a film based on the myth of Jason and the Argonauts.[6] Hollier's manager at that time, Susan Landau, was set to produce the film.[6] Even if the project moved along quickly at first,[6] the film never happened and ended up being cancelled.
