Carlos Bernard is an American actor best known for his role as CTU agent Tony Almeida in the action television series 24.

Bernard received a Master of Fine Arts degree from American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco after attending Illinois State University.

He performed in a number of A.C.T. stage productions, including Good with William Hurt, As You Like It, Hamlet, The Diary of Anne Frank and The Cherry Orchard.

At the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, he performed in Scenes From an Execution, with Frank Langella.

Bernard has made guest appearances on Walker, Texas Ranger, F/X: The Series, Babylon 5, Maloney, and Silk Stalkings and appeared as a regular on the daytime soap opera, The Young and the Restless.

He has appeared in the feature films Vegas, City of Dreams; The Killing Jar; and the short film The Colonel's Last Flight.

Throughout all the roles he had, Bernard hadn't reached any major level of success until 2001 when he joined the cast of the FOX Network's television drama 24, in which he played Tony Almeida, a government agent for a fictional agency called CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit).

Bernard held the role for three seasons until his character, along with several others, was written out at the end of Season 3 (2004).

His absence was short-lived, however, as he returned within the first six hours of the fourth season (2005) credited as "Special Guest Star".

In September 2007 it was confirmed in a FOX press release that Carlos will return to the show in the season 7 premiere.

Carlos is Spanish (his mother's family was originally from Spain) and Polish (his father is from Poland).

He married actress Sharisse Baker in 1999. They have one child, daughter Natalie, born in August 2003.
