Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Character actor Charles Boswell spent years performing on stages in New York and Los Angeles before embarking on a successful career in film and television.

He worked steadily through the '80s, portraying a surly cop in "Lost in America," Albert Brooks' comedy about two L.A. yuppies who give up their cushy lifestyle to travel the country in a Winnebago; and a stoic bodyguard on several episodes of the popular detective series "Matlock." He was cast as a suspicious police officer in "Kiss Me a Killer," an L.A.-set version of the classic noir "The Postman Always Rings Twice," and appeared as a priest in the long-running soap opera "General Hospital."
