Sad news...Jonathan Frid, the original Barnabas Collins, passed away Saturday.
The HUMAN is a huge Dark Shadows fan, and even met Frid in person back in the day when the show was at the height of its popularity. Frid's portrayal of tortured vampire Barnabas Collins is a classic, and is what catapulted the gothic soap to pop culture history.
Below is a link to a post on Frid. We'll post more next week.
His last appearance is a cameo in the upconing Johnny Depp remake of "Dark Shadows"
Godspeed Jonathan! You will be missed.
