Baltimore-born actor Conrad Brooks dies at 86

Posted on
Baltimore-born actor Conrad Brooks, who parlayed a recurring role in the films of the legendarily awful director Edward D. Wood Jr. into a decades-long career in grade-Z films and as a mainstay of fan conventions, died Wednesday. Brooks, who had lived in Inwood, W.Va., since 2004, died of complications from sepsis, said his daughter, Connie Archer.

Born Conrad Biedrzycki and raised a baker’s son in Fells Point, Brooks first met Wood, whose life was dramatized by director Tim Burton in the 1994 film “Ed Wood,” in 1948, after moving from Baltimore to Los Angeles.
