Carter W. Glade is an American/German actor who has been all over the world. He was born in New Hampshire, then moved to Germany for the early years of his life (München then Leipzig).

After spending time bouncing from Europe to the States, his mother and older brother moved to Charlotte while his father and younger brother stayed in Leipzig. Growing up Carter was a fearsome athlete, playing soccer in the summer and snowboarding during the winters. To this day he remains involved in soccer, football, golf, and many other sports whenever his schedule permits.

Aside from his knack for sports, Carter also immense respect for the performing arts. It was a passion of his that was heavily influenced by his older brother Charles, the lead singer of the Portland-based band Shadowgraphs. Carter decided to join a local theater which ultimately led him to pursuing a career in acting. He went on to study at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts (West Hollywood), Barry Papick Acting Studio, The Marnie Cooper School of Acting, and Natalie Ford Acting Studios here in Los Angeles.

The experience he accumulated through his education allowed him to evolve into quite the well-rounded actor. Best known for his role as Tobin in Freaky alongside Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton, Carter recently starred as the lead of Jack in Her Boyfriend’s Deadly Secret on LifeTime!

Offscreen, Glade is a huge advocate for mental health and utilizes his platform to spread information and awareness on the topic. He is also extremely passionate about climate change and is involved in the United Services Organization (USO). This organization allows actors such as Carter to provide live entertainment to members of the US Armed forces as well as their families. He is looking forward to continuing his involvement with this organization throughout his career!

Tell us about the projects you are working on.

On Netflix/AMC is the series Better Call Saul, where I had the incredible experience of being a part of the final season for the show!

With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?

Surfing has been a huge leisure sport of mine out and about the Malibu area of CA! There’s nothing better than waking up to the sunrise for a 7 am cold water paddle with your friends!

When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?

I love me some good ole’ sushi and Thai food.

What types of dishes do you typically order?

Something that’s fulfilling, that’s for sure! For sushi, a Spicy Tuna roll and Cali roll with a side of sashimi!

Any favorite bars?

I’ve lately been going down in NoHo to El Tejana which in my opinion, serves some of the best Margaritas and tequila in LA.

Favorite drink?   

My favorite drink is by far a Margarita or Old Fashioned. It’s my go-to. When I’m having a nice light night, a tequila soda with lime you just can’t beat!

Do you prepare drinks at home?

Sometimes I’ll whip up a nice Margarita, but typically stick with Bulleit on the rocks or a nice cold IPA.

Tell us about your home bar. What is it stocked with?

Not going to lie, my home bar is weak. I do have loads of wine since my Aunt is the CEO and Founder of Steamboat Winery out of Steamboat, Colorado! My dream bar would have a nice fridge with cold Stella’s, Heinekens, and craft IPA’s.

Have you ever been a bartender?

I have never been a legit bartender but have been a barback at some bars! Let me tell you, I have a lot of respect for bartenders due to all the chaos they deal with throughout the nights!

If you could share a drink with anyone, who would it be?

If I could share one drink with someone, dead or alive, it would have to be with either James Dean or Paul Newman.
