Re: Jonathan Frid of ‘Dark Shadows’ dead at 87
My wife is going to be upset to learn this. She is a big fan of his and Dark Shadows. She said she met him once in DC. He was doing Arsenic and Old Lace at the Kennedy Center. Somehow she was able to meet him after the show. She told him him she had been of fan of his since the Dark Shadow days and he told her "So that's what's wrong with you." He didn't have any pictures with him but promised to send her an autographed picture when got back to NYC. Which he did. R.I.P Jonathan Frid
I never saw Dark Shadows,myself,when I was young. We didn't get an ABC channel at my home. My dad could never receive an ABC channel with our TV line he had strung up the mountainside on which we lived. I do remember the kids at church talking about it like many of you said and remember.
Also without knowing he had died I found a best of Dark Shadows DVD at Wal-Mart over the weekend and bought it for my wife. How ironic!
Reds Fan Since 1971
