Charles Carroll is an American actor.


Carroll was born in Los Angeles, California, on May 12, 1952. His father was Dominic Wallace "Wally" Carroll, a professional baseball player who played for both the San Francisco Seals and the Los Angeles Angels. His grandmother was a Clan Wallace member. Carroll was also a descendant of William Wallace, a Scottish knight who became a leader in the Wars of Scottish Independence and turned posthumously famous in the epic poem The Wallace and the Academy Award-winning film Braveheart. In addition, Carroll was a direct descendant of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

At some point in his life, Carroll acquired an interest in acting and decided to pursue it as a career. In 1974, he graduated from Loyola University with a Bachelors Degree in Theatre Arts. He debuted in 1987 in the minor role of a bail bondsman in the cyberpunk action film RoboCop. Since then, Carroll landed dozens of other roles in his career. He most recently guest-starred in an episode of the CBS-produced police procedural drama Criminal Minds, in which he played a conspiracy theorist.
