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. Boswell developed an interest in acting after he realized he wouldn't become a professional basketball player, and moved from Louisiana to New York to study with famed drama coach Sanford Meisner. After several years of performing in Off-Broadway venues, Boswell moved to Los Angeles and continued performing and training with top-tier instructors like Stella Adler and Meisner disciple Charles Conrad. He made his film debut in 1979 in a bit part in the suspense thriller "When a Stranger Calls," about a babysitter terrorized by a mysterious psychopath. 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." Since then Boswell has played a grieving brother in the TV mini-series "Seduced by Madness: The Diane Borchardt Story" and starred as a sadistic prison guard in the legal drama "Murder in the First."
