Reb Brown has starred and co-starred in 22 movies opposite such screen luminaries as Gene Hackman, George C. Scott, John Lithgow, James Coburn, Christopher Lee, as well as, 32 guest star roles in a variety of television shows.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Reb excelled in Varsity Football, Basketball and Baseball. His father was a Police Sergeant with the Los Angeles Police Department and his mother was a homemaker.
Upon graduating from High School, Reb was recruited by 64 universities to play college football, as well as, UC Santa Barbara for baseball. He accepted a football scholarship to University of Southern California (USC).
After obtaining a Bachelors Degree, Reb's destiny took a surprisingly different path. A top Hollywood agent spotted and signed him to a contract at Universal Studios. The young, baby faced, blue-eyed athlete found himself as an actor in the movie business. His appearance and physique was perfect to play the title role of Captain America in a new television series.
Brown does not regret playing professional sports. He loves the acting profession. He says with a twinkle in his eyes, "Besides, I would not have met my wife, Cisse !" In 1978, Reb made a guest appearance on a CBS/Paramount series, The Ted Knight Show, where he met his future wife, Cisse Cameron. Cisse was a series regular. Since Reb does not believe in mincing words, he walked up to Cisse and said, "You don't know it yet, but I am going to marry you." They married a year later, September 8, 1979, and are still happily married.

Lord Blood-Rah is the geeky creation of Frank Wallace-Ailsworth, himself a life long horror and sci-fi geek. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 60's/early 70s, Frank was introduced to genre films, both classic and not so classic, through the legendary TV horror host show Creature Features hosted by Bob Wilkins.
The combination of monster classics like Frankenstein and The Wolf Man, as well as lesser cult films like The Beast of Yucca Flats and Attack of the Mushroom People, with Wilkins' dry witty commentary became the inspiration that would drive the creation of Lord Blood-Rah in 2009.
Relying on his study of voice acting and improvisation, Frank created the character of Lord Blood-Rah; the self proclaimed High Lord of Geekdom, a proud Geek who lives to spread the love of off-beat and imaginative genre films to all those ready to "Geek Out".
In 2013, Lord Blood-Rah's Nerve Wrackin' Theatre made the leap to television and the web. Now Geeks, Geekerellas, Geekulas and Geekeritas all over the country, and the world online, join Lord Blood-Rah in Blood-Rah Manor each week as he presents the best, worst and wildest horror and sci-fi films ever made!
