Carly Thomas Smith is an actress, known for Two and a Half Men (2003), Friends (1994) and Desperate Housewives (2004). She has been married to Jacques C. Smith since March 19, 2007.
Carly’s first big gig came shortly after graduating from Sarah Lawrence College when she was cast in the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning Broadway musical RENT. “I was so lucky…that’s how I got my Equity card!” She’s racked up some pretty impressive Theater credits since then. When the musical We Will Rock You staged it’s first American production, Carly was handpicked by Queen’s Brian May & Roger Taylor, director Ben Elton & producer Robert De Niro for the role of “Oz.” Shortly after, she went on to play the role of “Lorraine” in the Las Vegas production of the Tony Award winning musical Jersey Boys. Most recently, Carly gave a performance of “Pearl’s a Singer” in the Pasadena Playhouse’s production of Smokey Joe’s Café, that inspired the show’s legendary composer, Mike Stoller, to say she was his “favorite Pearl.”
With guest appearances on hit TV shows like Revenge, Two & A Half Men, Desperate Housewives, Friends, and Star Trek: Enterprise, she’s proven she can stand toe to toe with some of the biggest name stars. While her work in Independent Films and Web-Series such as After School, A Detective Story, Young Americans and Front Seat Chronicles continue to display her depth as an actress and natural charisma on the screen.
