‘Lost Boys’ Actor Dies at 52

Brooke McCarter, who played the vampire Paul in “The Lost Boys,” died on Tuesday. He was 52.

His family made the announcement on Facebook, saying that the actor died from a genetic liver condition.

“Brooke was our loving son, brother, father, cousin, nephew and friend,” the message read.

McCarter, who had also appeared in TV shows “The Twilight Zone” and “Route 66,” had few onscreen credits. His final feature film, “Wired,” was a biopic about John Belushi starring Michael Chiklis.

According to McCarter’s website, he left Hollywood in 1998 to pursue a career in the telecommunications industry.

Throughout the years, he continued to appear at horror conventions to take pictures with fans of “Lost Boys,” the 1980s classic that co-starred Jason Patrick, Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Haim.

Prior to “Lost Boys,” he had appeared in the L.A. skateboarding film “Thrashin'” alongside a teenage Tony Hawk, Josh Brolin and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
