109: Carlos Carrasco: From Panama to The Stars

Carlos Carrasco has a lifetime of roles on stage and screen under his belt, including four roles across “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” and “Star Trek: Voyager.” His first role was as the Klingon warrior named D’Ghor in the DS9 classic “The House of Quark.” Carlos followed that being a Klingon KCA officer with Garak on a leash in “Shattered Mirror,” then jumped to VOY as Bahrat in “Fair Trade,” and made his “shocking” final appearance as the alien Krole in “Honor Among Thieves.”

Growing up in Panama, Carlos explains how he found his way into acting, why he left his home country to pursue the American dream, performing Shakespeare across the nation and his experiences in the New York and regional theater world, and the challenges of finding roles as a Latino actor when he was coming up in the business.

Carlos discusses his makeup routines for his various Star Trek roles, memories of working on set, meeting Stephen hawking during the filming of one episode, the Shakespearean qualities of Star Trek, and what Carlos learned from Kristin Linklater that he implemented in his Trek roles.

Plus, a hilarious story about Rita Moreno, his time in “Crocodile Dundee 2”, “Return of Super Fly,” “Speed” with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock and the drastic changes that happened during the production of that film, and more!
