Jonathan Frid


Born - 2 December 1924, Hamilton, Ontario, Canada
Died - 13 April 2012

Round-faced, dark-haired, intense and slightly threatening-looking Canadian actor. Despite being a cult figure in horror circles, the actor, born John Frid, actually made very films, and his reputation in the horror genre rests almost entirely with his portrayal of the vampire Barnabas Collins in the TV series Dark Shadows and its movie spin-off; otherwise he remained throughout his career a man of the theatre. Films: House of Dark Shadows (1970), The Devil's Daughter (1973) and Seizure (1974). He had just completed a cameo in Tim Burton's new revamp of Dark Shadows at the time of his death from natural causes.
