Ralph Carter Net Worth $1 Million
Ralph started his acting career as a child which then transitioned to his years as a teenager. He made a notable performance during the 1970s adaptation of the Broadway musical “Raisin” which was based on Lorraine Hansberry’s drama “A Raisin in the Sun” – his performance earned him a Tony nomination for best supporting actor and also gave him a World Theatre Award. After that success, he continued to perform in theatre productions, including one entitled “Dude”, which earned him a Drama Desk Award for Most Promising Actor. He was also part of the play “Via Galactica”. Around this time, Carter found himself with a great opportunity in the television series “Good Times”, alongside names like Jimmie Walker and Janet Jackson, playing the youngest sibling of the Evans family, Michael, who was best known for his spunky activist personality.
During the peak of the popularity of the show, Ralph was declared a teen-idol singer and was being primed to become such – he had already found recognition through singing in the television show. He was signed by Mercury Records and released “Young and In Love” in 1975, with two singles “Extra! Extra!” and “When you’re Young and In Love”. The songs found moderate success and became hits in disco circles. The songs charted at number 12 and number 10 respectively.
After the run of “Good Times”, Ralph struggled to transition outside of the television show, and the show was the last where most people heard of him, a not uncommon occurrence among many television child stars. In 1987, he was part of the television film “Donny’s House”. In 2005, he appeared in the cast of “Ain’t Supposed to Die a Natural Death” which was another theatre production. By 2006, he became part of the film “The Groomsmen”. He also appeared at the “Good Times” reunion during the 2006 BET Awards.
Aside from the achievements he’s made during his acting and singing career, not much else is known about Ralph Carter’s life. His education, family and current endeavors all remain private. Things are kept mostly personal and it may also be due to the fact that the media is no longer following him as much as other actors who are more active in the industry.
