Just as Johnny Depp's turn comes the origional Barnabus Collins leaves this earth



We are sad to report on the passing of Jonathan Frid, who many horror fans will always remember as Barnabas Collins in the original Dark Shadows.

Although it was only made known today, it appears that he passed away on April 13th at the age of 87. He is said to have died of natural causes at Juravinski Hospital in Hamilton, Ontario. Our thoughts our with Jonathan’s family and friends.

His last role is a cameo appearance in Tim Burton’s upcoming remake of Dark Shadows, along with co-star Kathryn Leigh Scott. She recently wrote a letter about Jonathan’s passing and their time on the set of the new movie:

“I am so grateful to have worked with Jonathan, and to have known him as the charismatic, entertaining, complex and plain spoken man that he was. What fun we had working together! He was irascible, irreverent, funny, caring, lovable and thoroughly professional.
