Brad Carlton is a fictional character on The Bold and the Beautiful, portrayed by Don Diamont.


Brad was the lover of Lauren Fenmore when she was the wife of Scott Grainger. Sheila Carter took pictures Brad and Lauren together and she threatened on Lauren that if she tell to her husband Eric Forrester about her crimes, she will show to husband of Lauren Scott the her pictures with Brad. Brad, who had custody of his daughter, Colleen, to lose if the affair with Lauren came out, went to L.A. to retrieve the pictures. He managed to get them and the doubles from Sheila and returned to Genoa City to reassure Lauren that Sheila was no longer holding anything over them.
