Brooke McCarter, who played the vampire Paul in the movie “The Lost Boys”, has died at the age of 52 after a long-term illness.

McCarter passed away on Tuesday, the result of complications from a genetic liver condition.

Unfortunately for McCarter, his acting career never really took off after “The Lost Boys”. He did make a name for himself as a regular at horror conventions around the country.

His other acting credits included the new “Twilight Zone” (1985) and the movie “Thrashin'”(1986).
