When talking with Paul Carr, the strongest impression is of a man who cares deeply and is fiercely loyal. Throughout the conversation one hears regular mention of family and friends, and an underlying theme of commitment to growth and creativity in all of his endeavors. Whether it’s cooking, writing a play, performing, or playing with his 8-year-old son Michael, Mr. Carr seems to have the uncommon ability to be in the moment. It’s clear that this gift has served him well throughout his life, particularly in regards to his acting career.

Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, to a mother of Cajun descent and a father from New York, Carr’s unique family background provided him with ties and experiences in two vastly different environments. Winters were spent in New Orleans near his mother’s family attending school, and in the summer his father’s publishing work would take them to New York, where he enjoyed the company of his paternal relatives.

As a young man, Mr. Carr had expectations of becoming a professional musician, even going so far as to attend the prestigious Julliard School of Music for one summer during high school, where he studied the clarinet. However, upon seeing his son perform in a high school play, Paul’s father complimented him on his talent and suggested that perhaps acting was a career he should consider pursuing. With his family’s support, Carr began his education in the performing arts. Once again it was his father who provided encouragement and assistance when he informed Paul of an audition that was being held for a play at the New Orleans Community Theatre. Securing a part in the Mardi Gras production of " A la Creole", Paul’s course was set. "I remember the enormous thrill I got when I delivered my lines and the audience laughed," Carr recalled. "It was exhilarating to know that my performance was responsible for that moment. After that I had no doubt that this was what I wanted to do with my life." After performing in numerous local theatre productions, Paul Carr felt the need to further improve his acting skills.

Moving to New York, Carr began studying acting at the American Theatre Wing, which sponsored the Tony Awards. He remained there for six years, during which time he worked in summer stock, Broadway plays, and live television. To make ends meet, he also worked as a window dresser, a skill he had acquired as a young man in New Orleans. Always creative, it was one more example of his artistic talents, as well as a common-sense ability to utilize these gifts toward earning a living. It was during this period in New York that Carr worked with legendary actors Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy in a live television broadcast. "Their professionalism and talent was wonderful to see," Carr recalled admiringly

Paul made his screen debut in 1957 as the young man in Alfred Hitchcock’s film, "The Wrong Man," which starred Henry Fonda and Vera Miles. From there he went on to the lead in "Jamboree", a music-oriented film that features an amazing line-up of popular musicians of the era, including Carl Perkins, Frankie Avalon, Fats Domino, Count Basie, and Jerry Lee Lewis. "Making that film was fun," Carr recalled fondly, "I was young and optimistic, and very excited about the project.

Following this breakthrough, Paul Carr’s acting career gained momentum, and grew into steady work in film, television, and stage. He has since performed in several feature films and movies of the week, been cast in a number of television series and soap operas, as well as performing character parts in hundreds of television episodes from the mid-fifties into the nineties. In addition to his work on film, Carr has appeared in nearly 100 stage productions on Broadway, off-Broadway, and off-off-Broadway, as well as touring companies, stock, and in regional theatres around the country. This includes a 1993 national tour of "Six Degrees of Separation". He has performed at the Mark Taper Forum appearing in "The Biko Inquest", "Celebration", and "Slivovitz", worked at the Arena Stage in Washington D.C., where he appeared in "The Chemmy Circle", in addition to acting at the Equity Library Theatres in New York City and Los Angeles.

This devotion to his craft has led to the LA Weekly Award for Best Actor in the Theatre East production of "Manhattan Express" in 1987, and a 1995 Dramalogue Award for his portrayal of "Sam Byck" in the Los Angeles Repertory production of "Assassins". This performance also won him favorable reviews in Variety, as well as other Los Angeles publications.

In addition to his acting talents, Paul Carr also enjoys writing and directing. Most recently he directed a program in honor of the 50th anniversary of the United Nations. Carr currently heads the Play Committee of the LA Repertory Company, as well as being involved in a group called "Video Playwrights", where he writes & produces plays on video.

Despite his obvious love for and involvement in the performing arts, it still becomes clear that Paul Carr’s greatest joy comes from his relationships. He has a good word for everyone he has worked with, and his friendships span decades. Married and divorced twice, he speaks warmly of his ex-wives, and mentions his three children and granddaughter with great pride and pleasure. Carr enjoys spending time with daughters Christina and Alexandra, loves bike-riding with 8-year-old son Michael, and is a doting Grandfather to 6-year-old Jessie.

Paul Carr's other activities include a wide variety of sports, including golf, fencing, and snow skiing. He is also a capable musician with singing skills, as well as talents on the guitar and saxophone. Carr has a modest, easy-going manner, a quick wit, and charming sense of humor. When asked if there was any role that he regretted not getting he laughed heartily and said, "Of course! Every role I never got!"

Mr. Carr presently lives in Los Angeles, and is writing a novel.
