CARLOS BERNARD BIOGRAPHY
Although he played a brooding counter-terrorism agent on the small screen, this Latino actor was reportedly a cutup on the set of 24, the Howard Gordon produced action series that turned him into a sex symbol. After graduating from college, Bernard landed stage roles in his native Chicago before enrolling at the prestigious American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco. He was over 30 when he started booking small film and TV roles but kept himself busy on the boards as a cofounder of the Los Angeles-based Ashbury Actors Group. His career kicked into overdrive with 24, and in 2003 the married family man found himself on People's list of the 50 Most Beautiful People. Off screen, Bernard practices judo.
