Charles Socarides


Charles was born and raised in Manhattan. He now lives in Brooklyn but is not a hipster–he is probably too nice to genuinely be considered hip. But he loves playing damaged, demented, complicated people. He does this on stage in and around NY. Highlights include creating the role of Timothy in Stephen Karam’s Pulitzer Prize finalist Sons of the Prophet as well as Eddie in AR Gurney’s hit play Indian Blood. A fan of brand new work, he has enjoyed working on new scripts at MTC, Roundabout, New York Theatre Workshop, MCC, Colt Coeur and the Lark to name a few.

Charles loves working on-camera as much as theatre. He just wrapped the ABC miniseries When We Rise. Other recent credits include the hit shows The Good Wife, Elementary and Person of Interest. Charlie also has a life long passion for film. He starred opposite Elisabeth Moss in Deborah Kampmeier’s feature Virgin and recently wrapped two independent films.
He loves his family, traveling, reading and soul music. As a child he was terrified of vomiting. He is obsessed with becoming a better singer and learning how to cook.
