Carter Walton on The Bold & The Beautiful has presided over plenty of weddings but the handsome attorney still hasn’t tied the knot himself! The character first appeared on the soap back in 2013, and Lawrence Saint-Victor has been playing him both on contract and on a recurring basis since then. Here’s everything you need to know about the guy:

Carter came to Los Angeles to visit his adopted brother, Marcus Walton, who introduced him to his wife, Dayzee Leigh. When Carter discovered some papers, Dayzee admitted she’d helped Maya Avant give up her baby for adoption years ago, and now she wanted the child back. Carter helped Marcus and Dayzee locate the baby’s adoptive family only to find they’d all died in a car crash. Carter then found a job working at Forrester Creations working as a patent attorney.

Carter began dating Maya, not realizing that she had previously gone out with Rick Forrester until she found out he’d been lying to cover up his true identity. But the feelings were still there, and Caroline Spencer urged Carter to pursue Maya to keep her away from Rick. He also presided over his first wedding, one of Liam and Steffy’s numerous trips down the aisle. Caroline schemed to bring Carter and Maya together as the stars of a web series called ROOM 8, and scenes of them making out on camera successfully made Rick jealous.

When Rick was a no-show at the ROOM 8 premiere, Carter slept on Maya’s couch, but Rick got the wrong idea and slept with Caroline. After Maya officially dumped Rick, Carter presented her with a new script that was his cute way of proposing. However, while they got engaged, Maya was in no hurry to walk down the aisle. However, Rick and Caroline did tie the knot, and Carter officiated at the ceremony!

After learning Maya had seduced Rick in the steam room, Carter broke off the engagement but later offered Maya advice as she struggled to repair things with Rick and learned that she was a transgender woman. He also supported Maya when her story went public, and urged her to reconcile with Rick. In addition to presiding over various weddings, Carter also did legal work for the Forresters, defended Sally Spectra when she was arrested for grand larceny and industrial espionage, arranged for Steffy to adopt a baby that turned out to be Liam and Hopes, and more.

Carter let Maya know that he still had feelings for her and would be there for her if things didn’t work out with Rick. More recently, he has grown close to Zoe Buckingham and while he didn’t approve of her rushed relationship with Thomas Forrester, agreed to preside over their wedding as well. And when that ceremony exploded as Thomas’ true intentions (using Zoe to make Hope jealous) were revealed, Carter offered Zoe his support as she got back on her feet. Naturally, sparks began to fly between the pair as conversations turned flirty!

However, when Zende Forrester returned to Los Angeles from Paris after his marriage to Nicole fell apart, it seemed as though Carter might have some competition for Zoe’s heart. But Carter wasted no time in declaring his feelings, inviting Zoe to move in with him and very soon after popping the question! She accepted, but ended up throwing herself at Zende, which let a furious Carter to call the whole thing off!

Zoe desperately tried to apologize and when Carter still wouldn’t forgive her, she enlisted Quinn Fuller to help convince him to give her another chance. However, as Quinn made appeals on Zoe’s behalf, she also opened up to Carter about her own marital problems with Eric Forrester. And though she insisted she wanted to fix her marriage, Quinn seemed mighty flirty every time she caught Carter in a state of undress! And as they continued chatting about their relationship woes, the pair eventually fell into bed together! They vowed it wouldn’t happen again, but it just kept happening!

Having declared the affair a mistake and confirming that it was over, Carter recommitted himself to Zoe by proposing again, and she happily accepted. But he and Quinn struggled to resist each other and their secret started coming out! Shauna Fulton attempted to claim that she’d been the woman Carter was with when Zoe nearly walked in on them, but Paris Buckingham learned the truth and wanted to tell her sister. Ultimately, they convinced her to keep quiet but when Brook overheard the truth she interrupted Quinn and Eric’s vow renewal to force them to confess!

Quinn refused, so Carter stepped up and admitted that Quinn had been the one he’d slept with, not Shauna. He then planned to resign from his job at Forrester, but Eric — though furious at the betrayal — allowed Carter to remain… as long as he never had anything to do with Quinn again! However, that was easier said than done, and Carter and Quin continued to sneak around, eventually confessing their love for each other. But when Eric tore up divorce papers and wanted Quinn back, Carter was heartbroken. However, he was later stunned when Eric revealed he was unable to satisfy his wife sexually and proposed that Carter be the one to do it!

Carter and Quinn tried to resist but eventually took advantage of the free pass. Though when they were caught in the act and their arrangement with Eric was exposed, things got even more complicated and Eric realized this wasn’t the answer. Carter then found himself befriending Katie Logan, but felt she was also unavailable as she and Bill Spencer still had a connection. After he gave Paris a heads-up that Zende was about to propose, she thanked him with a kiss!

Although they claimed to just be friends, Carter and Paris kept making out, which caused a problem when her mother, Grace Buckingham, caught them and refused to let Carter ruin another of her daughters’ lives. She ordered Carter to break things off, but Paris defied her mother and slept with him anyway. Carter advised Paris to accept if Zende proposed again, but Zende gave her permission to date Carter instead. Carter pushed her away insisting they had no future together and privately admitted to Quinn he still wasn’t over her. Although determined to remain faithful to her husband, Quinn also warned Carter not to be with Paris if he didn’t truly love her. 

Finally, Carter decided to propose, and although surprised, Paris accepted. Despite everyone telling them both that marriage was a bad idea, the couple insisted on throwing a wedding at Il Giardino. But when Eric let Quinn go, she immediately raced to interrupt the ceremony to inform Carter she was now single and they could finally be together and he left Paris standing at the altar.

Unfortunately, after a few happy months together, Quinn left Carter claiming she couldn’t give him the family he deserved and he sought out her pal Shauna to see if she knew anything more about her decision. Katie immediately started flirting with the newly single Carter, and the two began a tentative romance that blossomed over time. When Bill attempted to win Katie back, Carter worried, but she informed Bill they were through and assured Carter he was the only man for her now.

In the summer of 2023, Carter joined Katie and the rest of the family in worrying about Eric’s plan to launch a new line. Especially when Eric’s spending was hurting the company. After the fashion showdown between father and son, Carter informed Ridge that based on the sales of both lines, Ridge was the winner. He was confused when Ridge claimed Eric won, but later understood when Ridge revealed that Eric was dying.

Thankfully, Eric pulled through and 2024 kicked off with Carter officiating an impromptu wedding for Eric and Donna after he surprised her with a proposal during his gala party. That spring, Carter was shocked when Zende Forrester confessed to him that the night of the party, he’d slept with Luna while she was on drugs. Carter insisted that RJ should know and Zende assured him Luna was telling him.

Carter continued getting involved in Forrester business and found himself in a tight spot when Steffy wanted to shut down Hope for the Future. He admitted that sales were down but that the new designs could turn it around, trying to stay non-committal. When Steffy suggested that he help her run the company, Carter declined, saying he was already working overtime as COO.
