His TV career continued throughout his teens with appearances in such TV series as Robin of Sherwood and A Sense of Guilt. In 1987, Condou starred in the TV movie Every Breath You Take opposite British Actress Connie Booth, as Tom, a child who develops diabetes. He continued in his twenties, playing a variety of roles in series like Martin Chuzzlewit, Pie in the Sky, The Bill, Peak Practice and Urban Gothic. In 1995, he had an uncredited role in the movie Judge Dredd. Before his 2005 performance as Jonatton Yeah? in the Channel 4 sitcom, Nathan Barley, Condou made guest appearances in a number of British TV series including, The Infinite Worlds of HG Wells, and Midsomer Murders and had a part in the 2001 thriller Charlotte Gray where Cate Blanchett played the title role.
In 2006, Condou appeared as Renoir in the BBC drama The Impressionists. Other television and film roles included guest appearances as Nino in Gimme, Gimme, Gimme with his friend Kathy Burke, and Giles in Dead Babies, where he appeared with Paul Bettany, Olivia Williams and Kris Marshall. He had a cameo role as one of the elves in Fred Claus with Vince Vaughn and Kevin Spacey in 2007, before joining Coronation Street, in the summer of 2007. That same year, Condou appeared in the film Good starring Viggo Mortensen and Jason Isaacs. In 2008, he left Coronation Street. Speaking of his departure, Condou said: "I have had a fantastic time in Coronation Street, but as a jobbing actor I believe it is time to move on." A Corrie spokeswoman said: "We'll be sad to see Charlie leave." At the time, Condou indicated "there are a few things in the pipeline, one of which is a feature film which is being made abroad. But all that's under wraps at the moment." This film turned out to be Good, released later that year.
In March 2011, Condou returned to Coronation Street after an absence of almost three years. He had been promised that Marcus would become a leading character on the show following reports that Coronation Street was to have its first gay wedding in 2011 when Marcus tied the knot with former flame Sean Tully. However, the plot failed to materialise reflecting his growing unease with his on-screen pairing with Sean Tully, played by Antony Cotton. Coronation Street sources initially indicated that he would enjoy a much more prominent role in the show. Condou went on to be featured in a controversial storyline that saw Marcus enter into a heterosexual relationship with Maria Connor.
