    Brooke McCarter, best known for playing Paul in The Lost Boys, has died after suffering from a long-term illness.

    The 52-year-old actor "died from liver failure at his Tampa, Florida home, after having been hospitalized earlier this year, discovered to have a rare genetic liver disorder, alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency (AAT)," a rep for McCarter tells PEOPLE.

    "He passed this morning, surrounded by close family and friends, including his daughter Kaitlin McCarter, age 12," the statement continues. "He will be remembered as a talented actor and musician. He was beloved son, brother, father, uncle, cousin, nephew and friend.

    "His family appreciates the thoughts and prayers from family, friends and fans during this very sad and difficult time. Funeral arrangements are still being finalized. Anyone interested in making a donation for further research into the liver disorder he had, please visit alphnet.org."



    In addition to starring in the 1987 vampire hit alongside Corey Haim, Kiefer Sutherland, Corey Feldman and Jason Patric, McCarter made an appearance in the cult classic skateboard movie Thrashin' alongside Tony Hawk and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

    McCarter dropped out of show business in 1998 and moved to Florida to pursue a career in telecommunications, according his website and a 2010 interview with Horror.com. He returned to horror in 2009 with a role in The Uh-oh Show.

    I knew I was going to love it as soon as I saw the previews with the song "People are Strange" playing in the background. Even before that, I had read that the movie was going to basically be "What if Peter Pan were a vampire?"

    Nice soundtrack overall. Great cinematography.

    And dialog like this:

    Edgar Frog: You did the right thing by calling us. Does your brother sleep a lot?
    Sam Emerson: Yeah, all day.
    Alan Frog: Does the sunlight freak him out?
    Sam Emerson: Uh, he wears sunglasses in the house.
    Edgar Frog: Bad breath, long fingernails?
    Sam Emerson: Yeah, his fingernails are a little bit longer, um, he always had bad breath, though.
    Alan Frog: He's a vampire all right.
    Edgar Frog: All right, here's what you do: get yourself a good sharp stake and drive it right through his heart.
    Sam Emerson: I can't do that; he's my brother.
    Alan Frog: OK, we'll come over and do it for you.

    Jamie Gertz looked so hot.

    Loved the creepy Froag brothers and their comic shop.

    The Lost Boys was not just a movie but the' movie of the 80's to awaken the primal freaky deaky loins.
    Oh come to this mama.. especially you Billy Wirth (also of Red Shoe Dairies fame )

    You're right about the soundtrack Mo. I listened to tracks religiously. 'Good times' was one of my favs to get the hips sashaying'.


    I'm sadden Brooke leaves behind a 12 yr old daughter. Sympathies to the family and friends. Rip. ... and thank you for being a "Lost Boy". <3

    How did I miss this? So sad, he was so striking. This movie sound track was the soundtrack of my 4 years of high school. Not only that, I grew up hanging out at Santa Cruz beach boardwalk too. I read Corey Feldman's bio about making this movie.
    There was a lot of shenanigans going on set but everyone had lots of fun. I can't wait till my daughter is old enough so we can watch this together.
    Until the end of time. I'll be there for you. You own my heart and mind. I truly adore you
