Scott Brady ACTOR


Scott Brady was born on September 13th, 1924 in Brooklyn, New York with the birth name Gerard Kenneth Tierney.  His parents were Lawrence and Maria Tierney.  His father was employed as chief of New York's aqueduct police force.  He had an older brother and a younger brother and all three sons became involved in acting.
Brady grew up in Westchester County and went to Roosevelt and St. Michael's High Schools.  He was very athletic in basketball, football and track. 
During World War II he served in the navy and was also a boxing champion.  When he was discharged from the military he supported himself by working as a lumberjack and also got involved in taking acting classes.
He soon headed west and joined his brother Lawrence in Los Angeles who was already beginning to make a name for himself in the industry.  When Brady was out having lunch he was seen by director, Hal B. Wallis and was approached and offered a screen test.  However, he did not do so well and decided to enroll in the Bliss-Hayden drama school to study acting.   

After completing his studies he signed with a small studio called eagle-Lion and made his film debut in, "In This Corner" (1948) where he got the chance to show off his boxing skills from his navy days. The next film roll was in, "Canon City" (1948) and "Walked By Night" (1948). 

With a certain amount of film experience now under his belt he moved over to work with two larger studio's, Fox and Universal.  He was cast in, "The Gal Who Took the West" (1949), "The Model and the Marriage Broker" (1951), "Bloodhounds of Broadway" (1952) and "Untamed Frontier" (1952).  

Brady was mostly cast in tough guy roles but did take on some romantic leads as well.  He was very manly looking, handsome and rugged all in one.  He took on the role in 1959 playing the Senator for the film, "The Best Man".

His television career was just as successful as his film.  He was the star of the western series, "Shotgun Slade" (1959).  Brady did not limit his career to film and television alone, he was also very involved in stage productions working on such plays as, "The Moon is Blue", "Detective Story" and "Picnic" to name a few.

In 1967 he decided to settle down and marry, Mary Tirony at the age of 43.  He had two sons with his wife.  As his career moved into the 70's large starring roles were less available to him as his appearance had made a drastic change with a large amount of weight gain and with him aging, however he still found work on a couple films and made a couple guest appearances.  Some of the films with less significant roles then he was once used to were, "Wicked, Wicked" (1973) and "Gremlins" (1984) which was his final film role.   
Scott Brady fell and was injured in 1981 and had to rely on a oxygen tank to breathe.  He  passed away on April 16th, 1985 at the age of sixty in Los Angeles, California from pulmonary fibrosis which was a progressive respiratory disease.  Scott is buried at the Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California.
