Louis W. Waldon

( b. Dec 16, 1934 Modesto, California, USA - d. Dec 06, 2013 Los Angeles, California, USA ) Male

Louis Waldon was an actor who appeared in several Andy Warhol films including "Lonesome Cowboys" and "Blue Movie," which the authorities seized for obscenity shortly after it was released.

Mr. Waldon was a rare Warhol Superstar, as members of his stock company were known, because he had acting experience. Warhol recruited him after seeing him in Edward Albee's Ballad of the Sad Cafe on Broadway in the early 1960s.

Mr. Waldon appeared with the actress Viva in the Warhol films "The Nude Restaurant" (1967), a series of random conversations carried on between almost-naked waiters, waitresses and restaurant patrons; and "Lonesome Cowboys" (1968), a homoerotic Western.

Louis Willard Waldon was born in Modesto, California. He graduated from Modesto High School and took drama classes in junior college.

In 1962 he appeared in the Off Broadway opening of Arthur L. Kopit's play, Oh Dad, Poor Dad, Mamma's Hung You in the Closet and I'm Feeling So Sad. In 1968 he appeared in the Warhol films "Flesh" and "San Diego Surf," then moved to Europe to act in movies.
