Charan Prabhakar is an Indian-born American actor.

Biography[]

Prabhakar was born on January 22, 1981, and while he was born in Madras, India, his family decided to move to Utah when he was 6. Growing up, Prabhakar spent a lot of his time daydreaming and grew interested in acting when he discovered that you could essentially get paid for living a different life. Thus, once he graduated from Brigham Young University in 2006, he moved to Los Angeles to begin his acting career. Prabhakar got his first on-screen role in 2002, when he was cast as DinoHand (as well as a random Indian) in the short film DinoHand. Since then, he's appeared in TV shows and movies such as Angie Tribeca, Code Black, Silicon Valley, The New Brit, The Passage, Henry Danger, High School Musical 2, and Criminal Minds.
