Christopher Scott Blackwood (born 10 January 1972; age 44) is a stuntman and stunt actor who served as stunt double for Aron Eisenberg in several episodes of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He received no credit for his work.
Blackwood was born in Concord, California. Because of his five-foot height, he mostly doubles child or short actors such as Sam Huntington and Lucas Black.

Huff, John Meier, Manny Perry, Nancy Thurston, Gregory J. Barnett, and Thomas DuPont), in which his high fall was coordinated by Star Trek stunt coordinator Dennis Madalone.
Blackwood has also performed stunts in television series such as Rescue 911, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman (starring Joe Lando, Frank Collison, Helene Udy, Barbara Babcock, Chad Allen, and Erika Flores), Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (starring Teri Hatcher, K Callan, and Tracy Scoggins), Mad TV, Dark Skies, and Freaks and Geeks (starring Becky Ann Baker).
