    Just received a press release from MPI Entertainment stating that actor Jonathan Frid died April 13. He was 87. Apprently, he has a cameo in the new Dark Shadows. I assume there are some fans here.

    Frankly, I thought he passed years ago.

    Met him in the 70's, very nice gentleman.

    Great Vampire.

    RIP.

    Sad to hear this. I've known one of his nieces since the mid 90's. It was always weird to look at their family pictures on the wall and see Barnabas.

    How ironic on Friday the 13th. Well RIP Jonathan. Thanks for the memories. You'll always be the the best Barnabas of them all.

    He really bought a new depth to the role of a vampire forever, changing the way that fictional being was portrayed.
