Carlos Bernard (born October 12, 1962; age 51) played Tony Almeida on 24 and voiced the same character in 24: The Game.

Bernard held the role for three seasons until his character, along with several others, was written out at the end of Season 3. His absence was short-lived, however, as he returned midway through Season 4.

His name returned to be credited on the main cast in Season 5, only to make six appearances upon which point his character was supposedly killed off. However Carlos returned as a main cast member to play Tony for Season 7.

24 Day 5 Filming Carlos Bernard

Carlos filming his "death" scene in Day 5.

A leg-related injury occurred while filming of Day 2 was still underway, so it was written in as due to an injury caused by Jack Bauer so to make up for the fact that Tony was using actual crutches.

While filming for Day 4, he set up a practical joke where he had his cop friends arrest Mia Kirshner for smoking marijuana on the set. His friends took the joke too far, and Kirshner was unable to continue her scenes with Bernard. Kiefer Sutherland commented that the director of the episode was reportedly very upset.
