Carlos Leal, whose film career runs parallel to his music career, grew up as the son of Spanish immigrants in Lausanne. The rap-group Sens Unik, which he co-founded in 1990, produced four golden records and toured the world. Songs by Sens Unik were used in the films LA HAINE by Mathieu Kassovitz and NEUTRE by Xavier Ruiz. Carlos appeared on the movie screen for the first time in the documentary film BABYLON 2 by Samir. This experience, as well as the numerous video clips he made in conjunction with Sens Unik, awakened his interest in acting, and he became involved in several theatrical productions, including a role in the play "La Vénus des lavabos", written by Pedro Almodovar. Carlos’ formal training began under the direction of Jack Garfein at the Actors Studio in Paris, and he soon appeared in Swiss and French productions.
In 2005, for his leading role in SNOW WHITE, the second most successful Swiss film of that year, Carlos was awarded the prize for Best Actor at the Tamil Nadu Film Festival in India and for the Swiss Film Prize 2006 in the category Best Performance in a Leading Role.
