About Carter Roy

From Broadway to film & television, stand-up comedy to web series creator, Carter has spent the last decade building a performance career that covers all mediums.
Born and raised in Montana, Carter graduated cum laude from Amherst College with a degree in American Studies - despite starting the notorious first day food fight. After graduation he spent a year traveling around the globe, living out of a backpack and sleeping in a tent across Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Back in the States he began acting and improvising in Seattle while studying with Groundling’s founder Gary Austin and completing a Meisner Training Program. After finishing his first two feature films, with backpack in hand, he took the train to New York.
Though his stand-up comedy landed him a recurring job doing comedy on dozens of Vh1 shows, his acting break came when Manhattan Theater Club invited him into their fold for their play reading series, allowing him to work side by side with the likes of Jeff Daniels, Marcia Gay Harden and Christopher Walken. From there he had the opportunity to join the Broadway cast of Translations as an understudy and his theater career continued from there.
His first TV opportunity was as a recurring bartender on As The World Turns, which has opened the door to working on a variety of network television shows. He’s acted in numerous films, including the lead role in the recent features The Mansion and The Umbrella Man.
He co-created two different web series, the couple comedy series Me + U and the guruistic Killin’ It with Paul Crik, which has been written up in the UK Guardian and featured on the channel G4. He can also be seen hosting television shows and was the spokesperson for the car company KIA.
Carter is a member of the Actor’s Center Workshop Company as well as SAG-AFTRA and Equity, and is on the advisory committee of Avalon Studios.
Aside from acting, Carter has produced and written the short films Leila and The Elevator and spends his free time writing songs.
