Clive Carter is an English actor.


Carter studied at the London Academy of Dramatic Arts, and managed to acheive success on stage and screen, playing the semi-regular role of Dudley Blake in Rep and having a small role in The Da Vinci Code.

However, the stage was where he found his greatest success, appearing in several original musical productions and straight plays, including the lead in Henry V and playing Gooper in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.


Best known for his work in musical theatre, Carter was the first actor to play the role of Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera at the Sydmonton Festival, though the role was later assumed by Steve Barton on the West End. That same year, he originated the role of Grantaire and Bamatabois in Les Misérables, before succeeding Roger Allam as Javert.

Carter later appeared in the original West End cast of Into the Woods in the dual role of the Wolf and Cinderella's Prince, which gained him an Olivier Award nomination. He later appeared in Sondheim revues Marry Me a Little and Putting It Together and featured in the original production of Always. In 2002 he took over the role of Khashoggi in We Will Rock You and in 2009 originated the role of Bob in Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, before succeeding Sam Kelly as The Wizard in Wicked, and later playing Mr. Salt in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
