Chris Burke, like his character on Life Goes On, suffers from Down's Syndrome, a birth defect that is a cause of mental retardation. He calls his acting career "a milestone for me and others with a handicap since I have Down's Syndrome. I have always been interested in acting and love what I am doing."
