Jonathan Frid, actor in “Dark Shadows”, dies at 87

Filed under: General, Television — Charlie Summers @ 8:37 pm

From the Associated Press: Jonathan Frid, actor in “Dark Shadows”, dies at 87

From the article: “Frid died Friday of natural causes in a hospital in his home town of Hamilton, Ontario, said Jim Pierson, a friend and spokesman for Dan Curtis Productions, the creator of ‘Dark Shadows.’”

I met Mr. Frid once, many years ago; he was unassuming and kind, polite to a fault. He was gracious enough to sign the poster from my Dark Shadows soundtrack album, something I treasure. I truly despise the idea of Johnny Depp spitting on this show, just as he has already decimated Willy Wonka and will soon destruct The Lone Ranger; for all its many faults, it was one helluva soap opera. And while Mr. Frid is gone, with television reruns, DVDs, and whatever future media will exist, he will be almost as immortal as his character.
