‘Yay me. I tried getting a group pic but was SABOTAGED – anyway best birthday ever.  Thank you everyone,’ the actor wrote in his caption.   

Christian is known for his outlandish sense of fashion, but he recently insisted that he’s more of a wallflower than many assume.   

‘Despite all the evidence to the contrary, I am an introvert parading as an extrovert,’ he told The Daily Telegraph.

‘I am literally hiding in plain sight,’ the socialite added, with the paper categorising him as ‘quite shy’. 

When entertaining, Christian says he has a well-rehearsed set of gags to repeat to friends to ensure he always has something witty to say. 

‘I know literally four jokes. And I just stand by the bar and repeat them all night long. Everyone goes away thinking I’m hilarious. It’s perfect,’ he said. 

Christian recently made his acting debut in Stan Original series Eden – in which he plays a twin named Leander.
