Jonathan Frid, the actor who played Barnabas Collins died, ironically on Friday the 13th. He has a cameo in the soon-to-be-released Tim Burton remake of Dark Shadows, the show that made Frid forever Barnabas, although Johnny Depp has stepped into the role.
I religiously watched the TV show after school. The background music heightened every scene as is evident in this clip of Barnabas' debut in Dark Shadows. The acting was over the top/campy and I loved it.
Frid was 87.
Another luminary has left us. RIP Levon Helm.
