Known for co-starring along side Academy Award Winner Cuba Gooding Jr. in 'Life of a King', Carlton Byrd was bit by the acting bug in the 5th grade after being cast as a munchkin in 'The Wizard of Oz'. From there he went on to receive his B.F.A. from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute and Experimental Theater Wing before being awarded with the coveted Ron Howard Foundation Scholarship. Carlton later studied the Meisner Technique at New York's Maggie Flanigan Studio. Carlton has been blessed to make guest appearances on such shows as TNT's Major Crimes, CBS' Blue Bloods, and NBC's Law & Order. Additionally, he had his first taste of the festival circuit with short films that include the stirring and provocative 'Slow' (M.V.A.A.F.F. Winner) and 'Close' (2011 Sundance Official Selection). He now resides in Los Angeles, CA.
