Conrad Brooks (born Conrad Biedrzycki on January 3, 1931 in Baltimore, Maryland) is an American actor.[1] He moved to Hollywood, California in the early 1950s to pursue a career in acting. He got his start in movies appearing in Ed Wood films such as Plan 9 from Outer Space, Glen or Glenda, and Jail Bait.[2] He took a break from acting during the 1960s and 1970s but due to the ongoing interest in the films of Ed Wood, he reemerged in the 1980s and has become a prolific actor. He also has since gone on to write, produce and direct several films.[3]

Along with Gregory Walcott and Paul Marco, Brooks appeared in Tim Burton's film, Ed Wood. Brooks is played by Brent Hinkley in the movie.

Conrad Brooks is a frequent guest at the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention where he signs autographs for fans who attend.

He recently appeared in a cameo appearance as the pianist for the Sound The Surrender music video by heavy metal band, Darkest Hour.[4] When The Sinister Urge episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000 was released on DVD, Brooks filmed a special introduction.

Conrad teamed up again with filmmaker Jonathan M. Parisen on two films, Toilet Gator and Space Vampires from The Planet Blood, and a television show, Blast Corrigan: Rocketship To Earth.

Conrad Brooks is founder and owner of Conrad Brooks Productions, which has produced the Gypsy Vampire series, starring Bruce "Porkchop" Lindsay as Count Lugo.

With the deaths of Dolores Fuller in 2011 and Walcott in 2015, Brooks is the last surviving regular Ed Wood actor.
